Award-winning Joe Mettle has received the prestigious Best Gospel Artiste award successively, and he believes post-award remarks and the fact that people are tired of him are the reasons he decided to take a sabbatical.
The ‘Bo noo ni’ hitmaker stated on Akoma FM’s Saturday entertainment show Entertainment 360, presented by Tony Best, that negative tales do not affect him.
The famed artist added that he does not find anything wrong with gospel singers wearing makeup unless it interferes with the delivery of the message or the accomplishment of one’s purpose. He said, “except when the wearing of makeups is affecting the spread of the gospel of Christ, there is no where in the Bible which says those things are wrong hence I do not have problem with it.”

“Bashing in post-award commentary does not bother me in the least.” Everyone has an opinion, and you can’t make them change it. There are many factors that go into getting an award, but when you try to explain them to others, they are often interested, unless they believe you don’t deserve it.
“The organizers take into account your work, shows you’ve performed, and a lot of other things when awarding you Artiste of the Year or any other category, although most people are unaware.”
“To be honest, there came a period when I decided to back out of the scheme a little.” The decision was made to encourage others to experience the thrill of winning the award as well, making it more pleasurable and providing a level playing field.”
