Patapaa is joker not Musician —Fancy Gadam

Self-acclaimed king of the Northern Region of Ghana, Mr Mujahid Ahmed Bello, known by his stage name as Fancy Gadam, has taken the rant of the ‘one corner’ hit maker, Patapaa, to another level by describing him (Patapaa) as joker and not a talented artiste.

The two upcoming musicians have been caught in war of words after Fancy Gadam’s ‘total cheat’ song controversially beat Patapaa’s ‘one corner’ to the most popular song of the year at the 19th Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMAs) which was held at the Accra International Conference Centre (AICC) at the weekend.

In a rant after the awards, Patapaa told “They (VGMA board) have to stop those things they’ve been doing. If someone deserves an award, you have to give it to him based on his output. They don’t have to take any stupid money to give an award to an undeserving artiste.”

Patapaa’s rants did not go down well with the man who snatched the most popular song of the year award thus hitting back at the ‘one corner’ hit maker.

Speaking with Bola Ray on Starr Chat show the ‘king of the North’ said Patapaa does not come close to a musician; he is a just joker and not a talented artiste as he (Patapaa) wants the world to believe.

When quizzed by the host of the show if he (Fancy Gadam) will ever collaborate with Patapaa on a song he answered in the affirmative saying, “I have heard of Patapaa. Patapaa is not talented, he is not talented. I won’t waste my time to collaborate with him. No! I won’t put him on my album; Patapaa is a joker, and not a musician.”

Earlier, Patapaa apologised to Charterhouse, the organisers of the event, following his rant and accusations levelled against the event house after losing out on the most popular song of the year award at the VGMAs.

The ‘One Corner’ hit maker who went berserk after losing the award to Fancy Gadam accused the event organisers of taking monies to deny him the glory.

“That very day I wasn’t myself and I regret my actions. I felt bad and I felt like going out of the hall. I need to apologise to them, I’m sorry.  I want to use this opportunity to apologise to Charterhouse, I was wrong with my actions. My fans were disappointed and I acted wrongly. I didn’t speak well and I apologise to them,” a sober Patapaa told Bola Ray on StarrFm.
