In a moving tribute, Danny Nettey's mom said she can't believe her son is gone and that she is devastated and confused.

Mrs Beatrice Nettey, recounted her fond memories with her son, saying she keeps looking  at the door hoping that Nettey would walk by to ask her “What’s for dinner, Mom?"

It reads: " I still can’t believe you are gone; I am shocked, devastated and confused. You were your usually self when we spoke that fateful morning, so you can understand my shock and confusion.

"I keep looking at the door, hoping that at any given moment you would walk right in and ask me, “What’s for dinner, Mom?” You would then put your arms around me and ask: “What’s up, Mom?” with that big smile on your face.

"I miss that big smile and that loud infectious laughter that made me want to laugh along with you. That is the kind of person you were; warm, generous, and big-hearted. Even as you teased me, it was never mean-spirited. You did it to make me happy, besides pointing out the obvious."

 

At the funeral ceremony, gospel musician Bernice Ofei sang her hit song "Life is so short," to remind all present that we shall return to our maker one day.

Minister Denzel led the worship service.

In a casket sprayed with a piano wine hue, the late musician was laid to rest at the Osu Cemetary to reunite with his maker.
