Gospel musician, Joe Mettle, has disclosed that his dream was to be an architect and not a musician.
According to him, although he knew he could make something out of music, his main dream was to be an architect.
“I wanted to actually be an architect, not a musician. But I know that at the back of my mind, I always knew that I would sing or do music for some reason, but I also knew that I was also going to still practise architecture”, he said.
In an interview with Prime Morning on Wednesday February 22, 2023, he said that he started living his architect dream but threw in the towel when he realised that it took most of his time, depriving him of the chance to focus on his ministry.
However, he decided to purse his second love, marketing, at the university to give him more time to focus on his music and ministry.
“I started singing, but later on, when I got to go to the university, I rather went to study marketing.
I knew that I was spending most of my time doing ministry, so I wanted to do something else that I loved that would not affect the ministry. I decided to go study marketing instead”, he said.
Joe Mettle was the first gospel musician to win the Artiste of the Year award at the 2017 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards and he has since received numerous other honours.
