Popular gospel singer Patience Nyarko says she is not perturbed by the insults and heat of fire being poured on her because she is fighting for the kingdom of God not mankind.
The “Obi nyanime” hit maker has come under a serious attack for what some have described as unpleasant comments she made about colleague singer Joe Mettle.
Social media has been set ablaze for the comments the “Obi Nyanime” singer made in which she expressed her dissatisfaction at how Ghanaians seem to be giving all of their attention to Joe Mettle and ignoring others in the Gospel industry.
Patience Nyarko appeared on Onua FM’s Anigye Mmre show on Saturday, May 16, and was speaking on the issue of why Gospel music was not going international, but got upset when a resource person singled out Joe Mettle as having gone international because he sings English songs.
But the gifted singer hinted on some key facts, when in a fit of anger sparked; “I don’t want people to think that Joe Mettle is the only Gospel artiste in Ghana. The way they are hyping him, I want people to know that he is not there yet. Sincerely, they are giving the guy a problem, I’m telling you” She bemoaned.
“When we talk about English songs, how many songs does Joe Mettle have? Is it not Pentecost songs that Joe Mettle sings? If the church of Pentecost and Methodist church should ban people from using their songs, what will be Joe Mettle’s fate?”
“What about those of us who write our own songs. Look at Nacee, Diana Hamilton, and Joyce Blessing who write their own songs. We have all been ignored because we don’t speak English. Is English food we eat?” she retorted.
Addressing this issue during an interview, Patience Nyarko said she is not perturbed about the insults and negative comments rained on her because she is fighting for the kingdom of God.
“I am fighting for the kingdom of God, which is the gospel industry so if they are insulting me because of the kingdom, am ok; because even Jesus was insulted,” she added.
Asked why she angrily walked out of an interview by Joy News Reporter Becky, Patience said Becky “provoked and pushed her to the limit so she walked away because I couldn’t take it anymore”.
