Rapper-turned-evangelist Lord Kenya has advised the 2017 VGMA Artiste of the Year, Joe Mettle, to make sure that his focus stays on his ministry, and not on awards.
“Don’t let awards be your priority, it’s vanity. I want him to know that his reward is in Heaven so he should focus on winning souls, he started it way back so he should focus on what he’s been doing.”
He clarified that this did not mean that he was not happy for Joe Mettle. “I was elated and overjoyed because personally, I think it is long overdue, gospel artistes should have won this award long ago.”
