Eight people died and Twenty sustained various degrees of injuries after ecstatic fans of the Tamale based artist, Fancy Gadam and Nigerian artist, Patoranking crushed into a truck on their way to meet Patoranking at the Tamale Airport.
Hours after this incident, the Tamale Metropolitan Chief Executive, Iddrisu Musah Superior in an interview with a local radio station disclosed that, it was one of the ways by which the famous Tamale musician, Fancy Gadam, enriches his talent.
Mayor Musah came under fire for attacking Fancy Gadam and calling him irresponsible, lawless and labeling his talent as a danger to Tamale.
Latest to kick the Mayor is Zylofon FM’s morning show host Sammy Flex who has called the utterances of the Mayor ‘unnecessary’, indicating that the Mayor is clueless because his timing for his utterances were wrong.
When quizzed by the host how the accident and the comments by the Mayor will affect Fancy Gadam’s music career, he said,
“I’ve done a research about your question and our Muslim brothers are not like we Christians. Muslims regard death to be beneficial, and there is no way this is going to coil them down not to support Fancy Gadam. The guy can still fill a stadium. There is no way the accident can affect Fancy Gadam’s music career, No it can’t be possible”
