Invest in children’s talents- Joe Mettle
Gospel musician, Joseph Oscar Mettle, has advised parents to invest in the talent development of their children.
“Discovery of one’s talent can sometimes be noticed at an early age.. it is usually what they love to do,”
“I knew that I was called to sing at the age of 10 and since then I have done my best to nurture that talent,” he said.
In a virtual meeting with children from the Perbi Cubs Library Services, the award-winning “Bo Noo Ni” singer emphasised on the need for formal education.
“ln pursuing all these you should always have your eyes fixed on God,” he added.
On her part, Anyele Perbi, Co-Founder of Perbi Cubs, said the Lions Inspire Cubs programme, was designed for astute men and women, whose lives were worth emulating to come on and inspire the younger generation.
“These men and women are referred to as Lions,” she said.
