There are no “beefs” in the gospel music industry, says Joe Mettle

According to Mettle, gospel artists serve the same purpose in worshipping the same God, so there are no “beefs” in his business

The award-winning Ghanaian gospel singer Joe Mettle has declared that the gospel music fraternity has no room for rivalries.

According to him, gospel artists serve the same purpose in worshipping the same God, so there are no “beefs”.

“Beefing” in the music industry is rivalry or disputes between artists, and the form of quarrelling is almost as old as the music industry itself.

Speaking to Caroline Sampson on Asaase Café, Mettle said: “Are there beefs in the gospel industry? I’m not sure there are any.

“In the gospel [music] industry, we are serving the same Lord; it’s just that He gives diverse gifts unto us where, together, we bring it to honour Him.

“So, if we are both honouring and serving the same master, why are we beefing?”

He added, “We are serving the same body. You may be the hand, someone else will be the legs, and together we make the same kingdom and bring glory to God.

“So, why do I have to beef with you? There is no need for that. I am actually the worst person to have a beef with.

“When the negativity comes, I identify the God factor in it, and when I do it works together for my good. By God’s grace, I have achieved certain feats based on negativity that came but I didn’t allow it to get to me.

“I don’t waste my pain, and I don’t waste my challenges; I utilise them for good,” Mettle said.
