Go hang; Fancy Gadam tells bitter Patapaa
Tamale based hiplife artiste, Ahjmed Mujahid Bello, popularly known as Fancy Gadam has lashed out at Patapaa for saying he didn’t deserve the Song of the Year award he received at the just ended Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMAs) held over the weekend.
Fancy Gadam won the award with his hit song ‘Total Cheat’, to the chagrin of Patapaa who was cocksure that his song ‘One Corner’ was the best and perhaps the only option for the category.
After walking out of the Accra International Conference centre where the awards ceremony was held, Patapaa expressed his dissatisfaction in an interview with Hitz FM’s Mz Gee.

He said organizers of the awards should not have nominated him if they knew he was not going to win, adding that his song was obviously the most popular song in the year under review and Fancy Gadam did not deserve it.
Patapaa feels unfairly treated
He also alleged that Fancy Gadam only won the award because he paid organizers of the awards, Charterhouse Productions.
But in an interview on Joy FM’s Super Morning Show on Monday, Fancy Gadam said in pidgin, “if I win and you no feel, massa go hang yourself”.
He told host Daniel Dadzie that the allegation was baseless. “Total lies,” he said, adding that his song would not have been nominated if it wasn’t a contender in the category.
He also found it absurd that Patapaa thought he was the only person who could have won the award when he was not more popular than the other nominees.
Patapaa’s anger, for Fancy Gadam, is needless. He advised the artiste to move beyond this year because “if this year is Fancy Gadam’s year, next year can be your year, so you for no vex.”
Can I say it is such a relief to discover somebody who truly knows what theyre preaching online? You actually have learned to bring a problem do my paper for me to light and make it crucial. More people should see this and can see this side of the story. I cant believe youre no more well-known simply because you definitely contain the gift.
