Yes!, he is touted as the ‘King of the North’ and Fancy Gadam is the name. He is undoubtedly a celebrated hero in Tamale and every suburb in the Northern part of Ghana.
In a bid to have total dominance across all regions, Fancy Gadam teamed up with Ghana’s finest rapper, Sarkodie and served music enthusiasts with “Total Cheat“. That collaboration helped him to get nationwide recognition regardless.
However, in the rightful thinking of Abubakar Ahmed popularly known as Blakk Rasta, Fancy Gadam will forever remain a village/local champion perhaps like Shatta Wale if he fails to merge the culture of the Northern side of Ghana with his music.
According to Blakk Rasta who doubles as reggae artiste and radio presenter, Fancy Gadam is doing well and he loves him accordingly but the kind of songs he produces won’t take him anywhere. He added that he’s not hating on the young artiste but he’s only giving him the best advise that will help him go far in his chosen profession.
“The North has a lot of good music that Fancy Gadam can ride on to pick ideas from. Namely, Takai, Damba, Gonja, etc. So, Fancy Gadam has to infuse the various cultural elements in the North into his music. But what he’s currently doing won’t take him anywhere. He will only make all the noise in Ghana but he won’t go anywhere!”, Blakk Rasta revealed this in an interview with SVTV Africa.
