Although he is into full professional gospel music at the moment, Joseph Oscar Nii Mettle, popularly known as Joe Mettle, has revealed that he wanted to be an architect when he was growing up.
The multiple award-winning Ghanaian gospel singer and songwriter, speaking in interview with Prince Benjamin, host of the Class Drive said: “Growing up, I wanted to be an architect, which I started, I just didn’t get to finish. But alongside, I still wanted to do music. I didn’t know it was going to be this but I wanted to do music. As part of my architecture dreams I still pursued a bit of music.”
I realised the music gift at an early stage of my life, somewhere around thirteen, fifteen years but how it was going to happen I didn’t know. It was a dream I realised. I realised that it was a calling just be able to sing to people…I realised that God wanted me to do it but as to how it was going to happen, I didn’t know.”
He further indicated: “I just had to trust him [God]. Growing up, my whole life has been a testimony and I have seen God do too much to doubt him. My life actually depends on the grace of God. I was sick when I was young and it took the grace of God to be healed so my whole life depended on him.
Joe Mettle further told Prince Benjamin he has been engaged in professional music for the past seven to eight years.
