Iddrisu Musah, the Municipal Chief Executive of Tamale, has described Fancy Gadam’s career as “ a threat” to the people of Tamale.
He made this statement on the back of an accident that claimed the lives of some fans of the Tamale-based artiste yesterday.According to him, he had spoken to Fancy Gadam and his management on mobilising his fans to flood the streets but they have been unyielding to his counsel.
“I have spoken to him, I have spoken to his management but this young man would not listen. And I tell you his talent is a danger to the people of Tamale. Why would you want to mobilize innocent people on the streets just because you want to make profit? You want to use the blood of the people to make money? We won’t tolerate that,” he said.
In the wake of this, the MCE also stated that he has banned all concerts at the Tamale Sports Stadium until further notice.
“I have banned all [musical] concerts at the stadium. No more [musical] concerts until further notice. We are not going to allow that. He was not coming to pay a courtesy call on my disciplined chiefs. They were all over the place, blocked the streets. A lot of indiscipline on the streets,” he noted.
