Levite Fletcher Narh, a Ghanaian Gospel artiste resident in the United States of America has accused Joe Mettle of song theft.
Narh claimed during an interview on Neat FM that Joe Mettle released the cover of Meyi W'aye originally written and composed by him without his authorisation. He added that Mettle initially reached out to him but the discussions weren't concluded before the release of the song.
Narh stated that the song was written in 2006, and published in 2007.
"This song is about 15 years old. I'm the only one that understands the history behind the song, and how God gave me the song but you know how they do in Ghana. People don't do the right thing," said Narh during the interview.
Watch Narh talk about the issue below.
It will be recalled that on Saturday, May 16, 2020, fellow Gospel artiste, Patience Nyarko stated that Mettle hardly has original songs during an interview on Onua FM.
She also added that he usually covers songs from the Church of Pentecost.
"When we talk about English songs, how many songs does Joe Mettle have? Is it not Pentecost songs that Joe Mettle sings? If the church of Pentecost and Methodist church should ban people from using their songs, what will be Joe Mettle's fate?"

The couple disclosed this while speaking in an interview with Graphic Showbiz concerning their yet-to-be-released book, Love Lockdown. As a celebrity, people would expect that he would hold a big, lavish wedding and invite his many friends and family to share on their big day.
However, Okyeame said he and his wife ignored the advice by friends and family to hold a big wedding. He said they did everything, with the exception of the purchasing of their wedding rings within 300 cedis. He explained that they went to the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA), where they signed for an amount and did not care what others thought of them. Okyeame Kwame added that they married the way they wanted and that should not bother other people.
