Kobby Mantey is one of Ghana’s best gospel music secrets. A singer, songwriter, composer and producer, Kobby is a little over thirty-year-old. He is passionate about delivering the excellence in production together with touching messages. Remember him for his rendition of the “BIGGER” song which he wrote his own verses to. The song went viral after he performed it at Joe Mettle’s LOVE GIFT concert. His humility and respect for the things of God speak volume of him from afar. After the release of the “BIGGER” single, Kobby moved on to live and minister in South Africa for a while where he took time to nurture his gospel music career. Moving back into Ghana as directed by God, he still remains a great treasure yet to be discovered by many.


Born Samuel Kwabena Mantey, Kobby Mantey as he is mostly called is a Contemporary Christian and gospel artist who first was driven to express himself through music as a youngster when he was discovered by his Sunday school teacher in his early years at church. He then went on developing the music gift the Lord has blessed him with through various means such as listening to songs and practicing on his own and with his local church’s choir. He was highly focused, mentally disciplined and was consistent with his ways to mastery. Kobby has over the years contributed to the development of contemporary gospel music in Ghana. He was highly instrumental in the formation of Ghana’s sensational gospel music group; E’mpraise Inc which he still plays a major role.


After his debut single- ” BIGGER”, Kobby has to his credit two more hit tunes namely “THE CALL” and “MY HEART” respectively. Out of our heavenly commission to preach the gospel, he coined “THE CALL”, a song which has been a major evangelism tool amongst communities. Testimonies from the impact of this song have been phenomenal. Lives has been touched, souls have been won for the kingdom of God and transformed by the power of the Holy Spirit embedded in the song. “MY HEART”, an afro beat gospel song which he featured Nigerian gospel artist, Minister Igwe has also been on radio rotation for a very long time and still remains one of the most trending afro beat gospel in the country. This song contains praise lyrics expressing gratitude and joy unto the Almighty God for His kindness, love, mercy and grace over his life.
