Fancy Gadam, whose real name is Ahjmed Mujahid Bello, has lambasted 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 self-confident 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 (AICC) where the awards ceremony was held, Patapaa expressed his dissatisfaction in an interview with Hitz FM.
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 yesterday, 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, was 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”, he said.
