The concert, according to Mr Mettle, was to celebrate the three decades of Danny Nettey's ministration through his music.

Danny Nettey's three albums were performed at the concert night.

His death shocked the entire country and left the Ghanaian music industry without one of its living legends.

Among his many hits song is “I will worship you.” He had been working actively on the gospel music scene for over two decades.

Daniel Tetteh Nettey was born on September 19 in Accra. His father was an evangelist and he was the third of six children.

At age six, Danny had already began writing songs and taught himself how to play the piano. He attended Accra Academy where he became the school’s music director and the president of the campus Scripture Union.

After school, he joined a gospel group that toured many secondary schools in the country to spread the word of God. His song writing skills had been greatly developed with some of his songs performed at his church.

He released his first album ‘Positive Change’ in 1995 and a year later another album followed; this time in collaboration with a group called the Pals.

Danny Nettey has traveled extensively in Africa and across the world. He has performed on many high profile stages alongside Bebe Winans, Kirk Franklin, Bishop T. D. Jakes; Israel Houghton, Don Moen, Alvin Slaughter and and Ron Kenoly.
