In a Facebook post, Musah Superior also described Fancy Gadam’s talent as “a danger” to the people of Tamale.

His comments followed a fatal accident involving the artiste’s convoy which according to official reports claimed two lives.

 “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.

Perhaps, in a bid to prevent another similar incident, the MCE disclosed the ban on 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.

Meanwhile, Zylofon Cash has released a statement to commiserate with families on the loss of their loved ones.

In a statement signed by Halifax Ansah-Addo, Communications Director of the Zylofon Cash, scores of fans who went to the airport to welcome Fancy Gadam and Patoranking  on Friday, June 29, who had a concert the next day were involved in a freak accident when a cargo truck veered off its lane and drove straight into Zylofon employee’s convoy whilst they were also having their Zylofon Cash float simultaneously.

The statement reads: “A cargo truck veered off its lane and drove straight into our convoy. It crashed into one of our vehicles and several motor bikes in the process.

Doctors from the Tamale Teaching Hospital have confirmed that two of our staff members were unable to survive. There are other casualties and injuries involving the bikers.

We are in grief and we plead that the continuous sharing of photos of the deceased persons in the condition they were after the accident is unethical and increasing our agony.

We are cooperating with the Police Service in Tamale as investigations continue.

 Zylofon Cash is exceptionally grateful to all persons across Ghana and beyond who have called to express their condolence, support, and solidarity in many ways from Friday dusk .

We plead for calm as we remain united in grief.”

Fancy Gadam has in a facebook post also expressed similar sentiments about last Friday’s accident.
