Late Danny Nettey
Born in Accra, Daniel Nettey developed love for music at a very tender age. He began his music career with his own group, ‘Danny Nettey and Pals,’ which focused on Christian ministry in Secondary Schools and Churches. His music is mostly a blend of gospel, smooth RnB, inspirational pop, and contemporary worship.
Nettey released his debut album, ‘Positive Change’, in 1995, which ushered the contemporary style of gospel music into Ghana, and endeared him to many young people back then. He followed that album up with two more, ‘This Time’ and ‘I believe’.
Over the course of his music career, Nettey ministered alongside the likes of Bishop T. D. Jakes, Don Moen, Bebe Winans, Ron Kenoly, Kirk Franklin, Israel Houghton, and Alvin Slaughter. Some of his songs include; My all 2 u, I am the Lord, I will never leave, I will worship, Sanctify me, Thank you, to mention a few.
