Even if we are building the industry around Joe Mettle, it’s the same industry.. O. B. Nartey to critics


Gospel musician cum radio presenter, O. B Nartey has been in the news recently over reports that he has suggested that Joe Mettle is the best gospel artiste in Ghana, an assertion which which has generated controversies with some gospel muscians taking exception to it, Patience being the most vociferous.

In an interview on Green Fm’s entertainment show, Gh Box hosted by Evans Quaye (SHAKER), O. B. Nartey dispelled the reports stating that his comments have been miscontrued by people. “It is a misplaced issue, the original question that the host asked me was not whether you are domestic or international. The comment I made was because of branding and promotions, Joe has used the apparatus around to make music and other people outside Ghana are inviting him, he is getting the international recognition. The is the whole import of my message”

He subsequently opined that, he sees nothing wrong in anyone expressing the view that Joe Mettle is the best, “what is wrong in saying that someone is the best? Even God wants the best for man so if someone is doing what is best, it’s in line with God’s will. Unless you people want to celebrate mediocrity”

He then suggested that since everything is usually built around individuals, even if the gospel industry is being built around Joe Mettle because he is globally recognized, it is to the benefit of the industry “Even if we are building the industry around him, it’s the same industry. In everything there is a leader…At any point in time there is somebody who we build something around. Who was Christianity built around? Who was Islam built around? So if Joe Mettle is doing well and we can build the industry around him, not to say we should make him a God but learn from him and (not) do otherwise, how is that divisive?”
