Ameyaw Debrah noted that Joe Mettle has not had any massive hit songs under the year of review, therefore, he should not have found his way onto the list.
He added that the popular notion about Chatterhouse that they would always want to put a gospel musician in the ultimate is true in this case.
However, Ameyaw said, whoever is chose from the gospel fraternity should be justifiable and not for adding sake.
For me, the list, I wouldn’t have put Joe mettle there in the artie of the year category because he particularly does not have a lot of massive hit songs in the year.
And I think what people are saying could be true that every time they want to put a gospel musician in the list and at least it must be justifiable not just for adding up sake but realistically.
I think I have seen an interview in which Joe Mettle himself said he was shocked, Ameyaw told YEN.com.gh
