Brief Biography of Danny Nettey
Daniel Tetteh Nettey was born to a retired envangelist and his prayer wife in Accra, Ghana. The couple had children before Danny and three others after his birth. Danny Nettey developed love for music at a very tender age, at age six he was already writing songs. He also started playing the organ without any formal lessons. Danny Nettey’s music is deeply influenced by Blues, love of which he picked from his father and his native music.
His love and interest for music persisted throughout his elementary and secondary education. While at the Accra Academy Secondary School, Danny Nettey rose through the ranks to become the Music Director and also led the local Scripture Union Fellowship as its President.
After Secondary School, Danny joined a group of young talented song ministers whose calling was to the youth especially those in Secondary Schools. The activities of the then up and coming Gospel Ministers circled around Prayer, Study of the Word and Song Ministration.
By this time, Danny was writing songs which were being ministered in his local church. He answered God’s call to minister in songs to the nation and beyond and started a music group called ‘Danny Nettey and Pals’. Through this group Danny continued in what he knew best to do; taking the message of the Gospel to the Secondary Schools and ministering in Churches across West Africa through Word and Song Ministration.
In 1995, Danny released his debut album ‘Positive Change’, which did very well and immediately made him very popular among the youth. In 1996 another album, this time with the Pals, was released. Through this second album a ministry by name ‘It’s About Time Productions’ was born. Its main goal was to train and produce talented young song ministers in Ghana and the sub-region.
Over the past ten years Danny has been touching lives through the ministration of God’s word through songs, with many testifying to God’s saving and healing power as a result of his inspiring ministrations. Danny has traveled extensively throughout Africa, the United Kingdom and the United States of America sharing God’s love and grace through ministration.
