Ghanaian musician Fancy Gadam, whose music is primarily done in native Northern dialects, has said he is not concerned about the hype and attention his songs are not receiving.
According to him, his songs are different from the ordinary and because he does good songs that will last for years, they are not receiving the airplay they deserve.
In an interview with the Ghana News Agency (GNA) the ‘Total Cheat’ hitmaker said he does not think he is no longer relevant to the Ghana music industry because he sings in languages the majority do not understand.
“In the music industry nowadays some people think I have become irrelevant mainly because I don’t do songs in dialects that are understood and widespread across the country.
“I mostly do my music in Dagbani, and the Dangbani speaking population is not that much as compared to Twi and other dialects but for me, music doesn’t know no language.
“The problem is that my songs don’t get enough airplay because I do good songs, I don’t know whether it is because of the dialect but the music goes beyond language as I said earlier,” he said.
Fancy Gadam’s ‘Total Cheat’ was the song that formally got him introduced into the local music scene and he has since gone ahead to work with the likes of Kuami Eugene, Sarkodie, Patoranking, Mugeez, etc.
He believes good music is better than a song that trends for just a few weeks and forgotten forever.
