Joe Mettle, Gospel Musician

A US-based gospel musician by the name Fletcher Narh has accused multiple award winning gospel musician Joe Mettle of using his song without his or his management’s approval.

According to Fletcher, the song that brought him into the limelight titled, ‘Mayi W’aye’ which was released 15 years prior was taken by Joe Mettle in 2015 and was likewise named “Meyi W’aye” without going through the due copyright measure.

“I sang Meyi W’aye around 15 years prior,” he revealed to Neat FM on Tuesday. “I’m the one in particular that comprehends the set of experiences behind the melody and how God gave the tune. Be that as it may, you know how Ghanaians carry on, individuals don’t make the best decision.” he boldly stated.

He further portrayed that Joe Mettle reached him to test the melody yet both disagreed on a term before it was delivered. “He called me years ago and told me he had done all the research and he loves the song and that he wanted to do [sample] it. I said ‘that’s okay. I have a lot of songs but we have to do it the right way’. He even wanted to know how much I was going to charge for it. I need to pray about it and all that but by the time I realised, he had released it,” he explained.

He said he was unable to take on Joe Mettle on the grounds that the Ghanaian framework doesn’t engage copyright proprietors to take on wrongdoers.

In spite of the fact that he was eager to see Joe Mettle jump on his song, Fletcher said he ought to have been given some credit.
