Popular Ghanian Gospel Minister, singer, and songwriter “Joe Mettle” (Joseph Oscar Mettle) has collaborated with Nigerian Photographer and singer TY BELLO to birth out this beautiful worship song titled MA BANDENDEN (Strong Tower).
When Joe Mettle sang his words in Twi, my face lit up. I had no idea what he was saying but I know one thing: worship goes beyond language, you never have to understand the words. To my surprise, when the translation to the words came, his worship in Twi and my worship in Yoruba were perfectly synced. Worship is the most beautiful thing our spirits get to experience and it’s such a joy to have the opportunity to do so across borders. So here we are: Nigeria and Ghana, spontaneously raising our voices to the God we both love. – TY BELLO
