Fancy Gadam was given a rousing welcome yesterday by the chiefs and people of Tamale.
He was followed by an excited crowd from the Tamale Airport through the principal streets of the town, in celebration of his awards at the recently held Vodafone Ghana Music Awards.
Fancy who also visited the chiefs and elders of Tamale posted on his Facebook page that the chiefs had told him they also voted for him to win his awards.
“Tamale Gukpenaa and Tamale Dakpema ! Two great Kings in our kingdom told me they personally voted for us to win!” he posted.
This is not the first time he has received such treat from his people. Last year after he won the New Artiste if the Year award, a lot of people gathered to welcome him in Tamale.
This year, Fancy Gadam won the Song of the Year and the Hiplife song of the Year awards with ‘Total Cheat.’
His Song of the Year award has raised controversies among some people who think Patapaa ‘One Corner’ best deserved the slot.
Patapaa has said that he believes Fancy Gadam may have bribed the organisers of the VGMA to win the Song of the Year award.
Fancy Gadam is one of the big artistes from the Northern Region who invaded the southern part of the country with hard work and support from his people.
About a year ago, he filled the National Theatre to the gunwales in his first ever show in Southern Ghana, dubbed ‘Gadam Nation Concert.’
He has songs like ‘Yaka Chana,’ ‘We Dey Collect,’ ‘Customer,’ ‘Kiss Me,’ among others.
