Ghana’s first gospel musician to have won the Artiste of the Year at the Ghana Music Awards, is billed to headline the maiden edition of London-based ABN Radio's Gospel music concert dubbed Gospelfest 2017.

The event is to celebrate one year of ABN Radio and to engage gospel music lovers in a thrilling evening of music this weekend.

The concert, which will bring together Gospel music lovers in London, is the brainchild of ABN Radio UK, London’s leading Afropolitan Radio station.

A statement from ABN said Joe Mettle is perfect for the event because he is known for his captivating and soulful music delivery.

“Joe Mettle set a record at this year’s Ghana Music Awards as the first non-secular artist to win the most coveted Artist of the Year in a category which had Afrobeats and dancehall heavyweights like Sarkodie, E.L and Stonebwoy.”

The statement said Joe will be supported by London-based Afro-pop  Gospel Artiste Andrew Bello, Juanita Francis, Emmanuel Smith-Tali, Shekina and Nic Vani.

Operations Manager for ABN Radio UK, Daniel Dadson stated that “This is the most anticipated Gospel concert for this year and we are very proud that such an excellent musician is headlining our maiden edition of this event.”
