Back and forth they go, bombs away. The clash between Fancy Gadam and Patapaa is one that is likely to rage on for a while.
The issue stems from the fact that Patapaa feels he was greatly cheated at the VGMAs when the award for song of the year went to Total Cheat as opposed to his mega hit “One Corner”. The consensus within the pubic after conducting a survey, many Ghanaians know One Corner by title, beat and dance whiles most struggle to recall Fancy Gadam‘s Total Cheat unless it is being played. And considering the fact the award is actually more of a popularity contest it is alarmingly confusing that One Corner lost out.

Fancy Gadam called Patapaa a joker, a grave insult to his musical prowess, and went on to state that personally he would never feature such a joker on any of his tracks.
Add insult to injury, Fancy Gadam was not even present at the VGMAs whiles Patapaa was there live and colour in his now iconic oversized blue suit.
But in a riposte, the Patapaa slammed Fancy, claiming if not with the help of Sarkodie, Ghanaians wouldn’t know him.
“Who is Fancy Gadam? I don’t even know him, had it not been Sarkodie, who would have heard of his song? My song was everywhere and was on the lips of everyone around the globe. If we say talent, talent is not about Sarkodie being on your song to make you win the award, it’s because of Sarkodie he won that award”, he said on Class FM.

Patapaa recently received an award for the “Most Popular Song” at the MMCLive concert which was held over the weekend and he used the opportunity to subtly jibe Fancy.
He does have a point, his song went so far based on merit. It was not boosted by the profile by any mega artiste. The song was made by Patapaa Amisty, an unknown person to the Ghanaian music industry yet went to become arguably the most talked about song during the course of the year. If that is not most popular then what is?
