According to him, Joe left on a good note, adding that he finds it difficult to understand why some people would think they had a conflict.

He continued that aside working with Soul Winners, Joe Mettle was much focused on building his own craft hence it was advisable he went solo to gain focus.

Robert told Andy Dosty that Soul Winners are planning on institutionalizing their concepts by grooming young talented singers to promote their legacy.
