Updated: Jan 3

The Praise Achievement Awards, a Gospel Award event in Ghana, took place on Sunday, December 19, 2023, in Accra. The night featured powerful performances from Gospel artists like Joe Mettle, Ntokozo Mbambo, MOGmusic, Perez Musik, Scott Evans, Tagoe Sisters , Nana Adwoa (USA), Rev Helen Yawson, Pastor Kofy, Oneman1000 and more.

A standout moment was the performance by Comedian Parrot Mouth, also known as the Bishop of Comedy. Parrot Mouth, a Nigerian-Ghanaian comedian, delivered an unforgettable act during which he copied Ghanaian Gospel icon Joe Mettle. From the entrance to the song choice, stage dynamics, actions of the backing vocalists, ad-libs, stage craft, and audience interaction, Parrot Mouth replicated everything about Joe Mettle's performance, singing one of Joe Mettle's powerful worship songs, "Onwanwani," released in 2017. To wow the audience further, Parrot Mouth didn't stop at imitating Joe Mettle; he also mimicked Worshipper Brother Sammy, known as the Nation's Worshipper. In his imitation, Parrot Mouth portrayed how Sammy starts his worship session, asking the keyboardist to play "Strings," sharing stories about how host pastor contacts him, and describing challenges he faced on his way to the event. There is no distinction between Parrot Mouth and Brother Sammy in this act, leaving the audience stunned and laughing.

During the awards night, Joe Mettle received multiple accolades, including Artiste of the Year, Worship Leader of the Year, and Song of the Year for "Kadosh." However, it was Parrot Mouth's surprising and entertaining delivery that made the awards night truly memorable. The audience were captivated by Parrot Mouth's ability to embody the essence of both Joe Mettle and Brother Sammy, creating a joyous and laughter-filled atmosphere. His entertaining acts take on the worship experience and added a unique touch to the event, leaving a lasting impression on everyone present. In the end, while Joe Mettle rightfully received his well-deserved awards, it was Parrot Mouth's unexpected performance that added an extra layer of excitement to the Praise Achievement Awards.
