Tamale based hiplife artiste, Ahjmed Mujahid Bello, prominently known as Fancy Gadam has lashed out at Patapaa for saying he didn’t merit the Song of the Year grant he got at the simply finished Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMAs) held throughout the end of the week.
Favor Gadam won the honor with his hit melody ‘Add up to Cheat’, to the dismay of Patapaa who was cocksure that his tune ‘One Corner’ was the best and maybe the main choice for the classification.
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 MzGee.
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.
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.”
