Mujahid Ahmed Bello, known by his stage name Fancy Gadam hitherto to becoming a musician was a dancer but gave music a try and became successful.
He started massing up fame in Tamale and broke the record when he filled up the 21, 0000 capacity Tamale Sports Stadium now known as Aliu Mahama Sports Stadium during one of his concerts.
In July 2016, during Sala Jams to mark Islamic Eid-Ul-Fitr celebrations of which Fancy Gadam was the guest artiste, he encountered his first disaster when nine persons died in a stampede.
The deceased persons including 6 females and 3 males were trapped on the walkway of the exit gate of the Asawase Community center when a false alarm was raised that there was going to be a rancor between two musicians Fancy Gadam and another billed to perform at the event.
In the ensuing pandemonium, there was a stampede resulting in the death of the nine persons.
Just last week, 8 people died and 20 others got injured when a convoy of Fancy Gadam had an accident on their way to welcome Patoranking to Tamale, where he is billed to perform with the self-acclaimed King of Northern music, Fancy Gadam.
Zylofon cash staff were among the deceased persons.
On their way to the airport to meet Patoranking, the heavy convoy of cars and motorbikes collided with a truck and other vehicles following the truck hit a pile up leading to the death of 8 people.
The Tamale Metropolitan Chief Executive (MCE), Musah Superior has accused Fancy Gadam of using human blood to enrich his talent.
MyNewsGH.com monitored the ‘angry’ Mayor’s comments; “Fancy Gadam is an irresponsible talent. We are not going to allow an individual to take Tamale to ransom. His talent is a danger to the people of Tamale. Do you want to use the blood of the people to make money? We will not allow it!” he said, very angrily.
