Joe Mettle has become the first gospel artiste to win the Artiste of the Year title at the 2017 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMAs).

Joe Mettle wins the overall Artiste of the Year beating EL, Stonebwoy, MzVee, Sarkodie and Medikal.

He believes winning the award has opened the door for other gospel artistes to win since no gospel artiste has ever won the ultimate award.

In his acceptance speech, Joe Mettle said, “This is for God almighty, this is for gospel music, this is for Christian and for every gospel musician in this house, I just want to say that the door is open.”

He also won the award for the gospel act of the year.

Apart from the Artiste of the Year award, he beat Ogya Mensah, Afriyie, Akwaboah, Sonnie Badu, and Ernest Opoku to win the Best Male Vocalist of the Year award.
