For 17 years now the coveted artiste of the year has eluded gospel artiste in Ghana. Ohemaa Mercy, the Wobe Ye Kese hitmaker, who has in the past lost out the same award to Kwaw Kese and Sarkodie in 2008 and 2010 respectively, extended congratulatory messages to Joe Mettle.
Ohemaa calls the win a world record and a day to be celebrated for generations to come.
Here’s Ohemaa’s message:
A Gospel Musician finally won the overall Artiste of the Year. Trust me this is a World Record. For World over its never happen for a Gospel Artiste to Win the overall above our Circular Arts. Congratulation Joe Mettle for lifting the Banner of Christ Jesus higher. We feel proud and once again Gospel Music has taking its rightful place. Generations will remember this day Ayekooo Joe Mettle
