Joe Mettle emerged ‘Artiste of the Year’ at the 2017 edition of the annual VGMA.

Joe Mettle was nominated alongside Medikal, Stonebwoy, MzVee, Sarkodie and reigning Artiste of the Year, E.L, but managed to beat all 5 contenders to make history at the event.

He is the first gospel artiste to win the award since the inception of the VGMAs in 2000.

This feat, General Secretary of the Christian Council, Rev Opuni Frimpong speaking on Adom FM’s Morning Show, ‘Dwaso Nsem’ Monday said is a laudable one.

“We congratulate all the musicians and especially Joe Mettle for being the first gospel artiste to win the VGMA…,” he said.

Joe Mettle on the night also won the Gospel artiste of the year award and Male vocalist of the year award.

Joe Mettle, a former lead singer of the Soul Winners gospel music group, has since he went solo produced mega hits like ‘Medo Wo,’ ‘Ayeyi Nnwom,’ ‘Jehovah Praise,’ the current banger ‘Onwanwani,’ among others.

He’s in the past won awards like Best Male Vocalist, Best Songwriter, Best Video at 2012 Gospel Industry Awards; Alternative Song of the Year at 2012 Bass Awards; Best Male Artiste at 2016 RIGA Awards in South Africa, Best Vocal Performance at the 2015 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards and has also earned multiple nominations in both local and international award schemes.
