Ghanaian gospel star, Joseph Oscar Mettle known by his stage name Joe Mettle, has revealed in a new Facebook post, reasons behind the marks on his face.
Although many think the marks are tribal, Joe disclosed that, in search of a cure for an illness he suffered when he was younger, a traditional healer made those marks on his face.
Mettle went on to say that earthly doctors could not heal him from the deadly illness until he and his family encountered Jesus Christ.
“I am not exaggerating or trying to be modest when I say that I owe all that I am and have to Jesus alone. Soon after I was born, I got sick, so sick that my parents thought that I would die. The doctors had no cure, so my parents took me to all sorts of places in a desperate attempt to save my life. That’s why I have the marks on my face. All hope was lost, till we encountered Jesus the Healer. He saved my life.

“Growing up, my family did not have much so getting educated was a challenge. I had to move from school to school. I even remember having to drop out at a point. Again, Jehovah Jireh my Provider stepped in and came through for me. Your situation is not hopeless. I’m here to encourage you today. There is no situation too big or too little for God. He chooses the foolish things to confound the wise. He did it for me, He is still doing it and He can certainly do it for you. Just hold on and keep trusting Him. He will turn your sorrow to joy and fill your mouth with joy. My name is Joseph Oscar Mettle, and my God is a God of Miracles. #Onwanwani"
