Joe Mettle Accused Of Stealing A Gospel Song Released 15 Years Ago

Ghanaian gospel musician, Joe Mettle has been accused of stealing a gospel song which belongs to UK-based Ghanaian gospel musician called Fletcher Narh.

The UK- based Ghanaian gospel musician in an interview on Neat FM accused Joe Mettle for using his song without consulting his management.

According to Fletcher Narh, his breakthrough song, ‘Mayi W’aye’ which was released 15 years ago was taken by Joe Mettle in 2015 also titled “Meyi W’aye” without going through the due copyright process.

“I sang Meyi W’aye about 15 years ago,” he told Neat FM on Tuesday. “I’m the only one that understands the history behind the song and how God gave the song. But you know how Ghanaians behave, people do not do the right thing.”

He further stated that Joe Mettle contacted him to sample his song but both didn't agree but he realized, Joe Mettle has released it.

“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 stated.
