I went to university without SHS education - Joe Mettle reveals struggles

Faith in God works, that is according to the 2017 VGMA Artist of the Year, who says it turned his life around.

“No man can claim credit for who I am today,” Joe Mettle said on Joy FM, “It was God who changed my story,” he added.

He dropped out of school twice in his attempt to get a secondary school certificate and it was clear his JHS certificate could not make him what he wanted to be.

It took the power of God to get him to complete university education even without a formal secondary school education, he recounted on ‘I SURVIVED’ the latest segment on the Super Morning Show.

But long before he could make music, and become the VGMA artist of the year, Joe Mettle recounted how his present fame, power and wealth is a stark contradiction of conditions of his formative years. Mr. Mettle was already selling at age 12 to support his mother.

“It was not by choice,” he told Daniel Dadzie host of the SMS, “born into a family which did not have, I did what mother did,” he narrated.

Joe Mettle sold waakye leaves at Agbogloshie, and progressed to selling waakye itself when polythene bags replaced the leaves used to package the Ghanaian delicacy.
