Ghanaian gospel musician, Joe Mettle has disclosed that he used to hustle at a very tender age just to support her family financially.
The 2017 Vodafone Ghana ‘Artiste of the Year’ in an interview on Rainbow Radio revealed that he started hustling at the age of 16 just to survive–his hustle was about selling ‘waakye leaves’, a business which was run by her mother.

The ‘Bo Noo Ni’ hitmaker said:
‘’I sell before going to school. When I am in the afternoon shift, I sell in the morning. When I am on the morning shift, I sell after school but due to the nature of the job, I wake up very early in the morning to go and sell”.
