His music career spanned over four decades; he won multiple awards for his songs. He was awarded the Grand Medal of Ghana by John Agyekum Kufour in 2006. He worked briefly as a seaman before joining Moses Kweku Oppong's Kakaiku band.

After familiarizing himself with the Ghanaian music scene, he joined Ocean Strings and led the band until 1965. When the band was disbanded, he joined a newly formed band in Takoradi, The Carousel 7. He came to prominence in 1969 when he released his single "Edina Benya". It was he who impressed on the band's owner, Anis Mubarak, to sign Paapa Yankson to the group.

Mann added Western musical instruments to Osode, the traditional music of Ghanaian fishermen rhythms. Mann had several hit songs, including "Asafo beesuon", "Obaa yaa aye me bone", "Kolomashie", "Dofo bi akyerew me", "Ankwasema dede", "Okwan tsentsen awar", "Aboa akonkoran", "Beebi a odo wo", "Tsie m'afotusem", "Ebusua ape adze aye me", "Yebeyi wo aye", and "Do me ma mondo wo bi". His latest album, Wope Nyeho was produced by West Gold Music Studio in Takoradi and released in 2013. In 2006, Mann was awarded the Grand Medal of Ghana during the 2006 National Honours and Awards Ceremony by President John Agyekum Kufour in recognition of his contribution to Ghanaian music. He was among the first recipients of this award after the ceremony was revamped in 2006. He lived at Anaji, a suburb of Takoradi. The street on which his house is located has been renamed C.
