I’m taking over Ghana music — Fancy Gadam



When Tamale-based artiste, Fancy Gadam won New Artiste of the Year at the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards 2017, there was uproar.

He had triumphed over the likes of Medikal, Ebony, Nii Funny, Rudebwoy Ranking, Article Wan and Feli Nuna and there were allegations of cheating especially because he was little known in Accra where everybody believes all the action is.

Fast forward a few months on and Fancy Gadam has proved he more than deserved the win with his hit collaborations with artistes such as Sarkodie and packing venues even in Accra.

Fancy who held a sold-out concert at the Bukom Boxing Arena last Sunday told Showbiz in an interview on Monday that he is taking over the Ghanaian music scene.

“I am steadily taking over the Ghanaian music scene and it’s evident with the concerts I have done so far. It is rare to find an artiste from the North doing wonders across the nation.

“Although I am not an A-List artiste, I have staged three concerts, Gadam Nation at Baba Yara Sports Stadium, Kumasi, Gadam Nation at the National Theatre, Gadam Nation at Bukom Boxing Arena in Accra and they all have been very successful. I can confidently say that I can fill any auditorium in any part of the country,” he said.

According to Fancy Gadam, real name, Ahmed Mujahid Bello, the love shown him at all these concerts is a clear indicator that his fans are not just in the North.

In answer to what his magic formula is, the self-acclaimed King of the North, said he does not joke with his fans and finds time to meet them as often as he can.

He added that he thinks about his fans more than he does about himself because they made him who he is.

“The success I chalk at my concerts is because I have serious fans who will never miss my shows. I share my daily and weekly activities with my fans and I have more than 120 WhatsApp groups where my fans and I discuss issues concerning my brand,” he said.

Having had such a successful 2017, Fancy Gadam says he is targeting the Artiste of the Year trophy at next year’s Ghana Music Awards.

“When you’re not a ‘big’ artiste, your work is hardly noticed but anyone who follows me keenly knows I am one of the busiest artistes in Ghana.

“This year alone, I have released not less than seven singles with three videos featuring artistes such as R2Bees, Patoranking and Mr. Eazi,” he said.

Fancy Gadam is known for songs such as Total Cheat, Concrete, Naayi- Koomi, Nawuni- Yiko, Bregya, Champion Boy and Takahi.

His first album, Kalipo, released in December 2010 took the North by storm.

$600 Million found by farmer, gives it to police.



The news that a Colombian farmer finds $600,000,000 in drug money buried on his farm has created a modern day “Gold Rush” as people are now flocking to the Colombian countryside with echo sounders and all kinds of scanning equipment, searching for more of Pablo Escobar’s hidden money pits.

Pablo Emilio Escobar Gaviria (December 1, 1949 – December 2, 1993) was a notorious Colombian drug lord who at the height of his career, supplied about 80% of the cocaine smuggled into the US.
Known as “The King of Cocaine”, he was the wealthiest criminal in history, with an estimated known net worth of US$30 billion by the early 1990s, and approximately US$50 billion when including money that was buried in different areas of Colombia.

At the height of its power, Pablo Escobar’s drug cartel was smuggling fifteen tons of cocaine (worth more than half a billion dollars) into the United States every single day.
He made so much money that he had to spend $1000 per week purchasing rubber bands to wrap the stacks of cash.

Pablo had so much money that he could not possibly spend it all. He had over 800 luxury mansions all over Colombia, owned football teams, he gave away billions of dollars to help build hospital’s, schools, work programs and even rebuilt entire ghettos for the poverty stricken people of Colombia.

Even with all that going on, he still had too much cash to hide. So he started to bury it all over Colombia. The location of each money pit was known by only Pablo and his three closest associates.

When Pablo was finally killed, the location of many of these money pits died with him. The CIA estimates there to be about 100 of these money pits that have yet to be discovered, each containing between five hundred million to one billion dollars.

Fast forward to today. Meet Jose Mariena Cartolos, a 65 year old farmer who recently received a $3000 grant from the Colombian government to help him start a palm oil plantation on land that has been in his family for over 200 years.

While digging the irrigation trench for the plantation, Jose discovered something big beneath his feet. After further excavation, Jose discovered several large blue containers with something incredible inside.

Money, not just a few hundred dollars, not even a million dollars, heck not even 100 million dollars. This 65 year old farmer with nothing but the shirt on his back had managed to find one of Pablo Escobar’s money pit’s containing a whopping $600,000,000. Yup thats right, six hundred million dollars.

Its not clear what will happen to the money now, but many speculate that Jose Mariena Cartolos will not be allowed to keep the money, but it will most likely remain in Colombia and be used to fund social and economical programs that help those in poverty.
