Tamale-based afropop artiste, Mujahid Ahmed Bello, known by his stage name Fancy Gadam, has reacted to comments that seek to suggest that he uses black magic in his music career.
Credited with hit songs such as ‘Turn Up’, ‘Concrete’, ‘Bie Gya’, ‘Naayo Koomi’, ‘We Dey Collect’, ‘Naawuni Yiko’ among others, Fancy Gadam, who is also one of the reigning artistes in the northern sector of the country, debunked rumours that he has cast a spell on his fans.
Though many have attributed the success of Fancy Gadam to magic, he however emphatically stated that such allegations leveled against him are baseless and calculated attempt to tarnish his hard earned reputation.
In an interview with Joy Prime’s Showbiz Now, hosted by KMJ on Wednesday, Fancy Gadam declared that with the almighty Allah that he serves, he will always triumph over such allegations, stressing “I give thanks to almighty Allah for the blessing.”
Fancy Gadam, who is known for maintaining a huge following on and off social media after successfully filling stadia and huge auditoriums in Tamale and Accra, believes he is blessed, and without Allah’s blessings, his efforts would never bear fruits.
As one of the most sought-after performers from the Northern Region, Fancy Gadam will be performing to over ten thousand music lovers at his upcoming concert slated for Walewale Stadium on February 19.
He has won many awards which include Hiplife Song of the Year and Vodafone Most Popular Song of the Year with his hit song, ‘Total Cheat’ at the 2018 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMA).
He has also appeared on many musical concerts held in the country and performed with music stars like Sarkodie, Stonebwoy, Shatta Wale, Samini, among others.
Fancy Gadam has had collaborations with popular musicians like Sarkodie, Mr Eazi, Patoranking, among others, and popularly referred to as the ‘King of the North’ in the music industry.
