Gospel musician Joe Mettle after winning his second award at the 2017 Ghana Music Awards, said he had one wish.
He wished the late Danny Nettey was present to witness him receive the award for Best Male Vocalist of the Year.
The ‘Onwanwani’ hit singer beat Ogya Mensah, Afriyie, Akwaboah, Sonnie Badu, and Ernest Opoku to win the award. He had earlier picked up the Gospel Artiste of the Year award.
As soon as he picked the award, he told the packed audience at the Accra International Conference Centre (AICC) Sunday morning that he dedicates the award to the man who discovered him.
