“ln pursuing all these, young people should always have their eyes fixed on God.
“I knew that I was called to sing at the age of 10 and since then I did my best to nurture that talent.”
He said he moved from playing the drums to singing with groups just to sharpen the skills.
Mr Mettle said the discovery of one’s talent could be seen sometimes at an early age, which was usually what the person loves to do and was happy doing. He said to grow and fully maximize that talent, one must spend time to develop it.
