The final funeral and burial rites of the late gospel musician, Danny Nettey, occured at the Forecourt of the Banquet Hall, State House in Accra with a gospel concert in his honour.
Prior to the concert, Joe Mettle spoke about how joyous it should be rather than being moody or sad knowing where Danny is resting.
“This is a tribute I would have loved to see Danny on set while we do this but he is no more so is it very emotional for us,” he said.
Given the nature of the concert, I am praying to God to give us the strength to compose ourselves and celebrate the life of Danny Nettey.
“We want joy to envelop the whole place rather than sadness because I believe that Danny has been called to glory by his father. If he were here, he won’t expect us to be sad, because he is in a better place, he said.
