Speaking to Andy Dosty , Fancy Gadam said he almost gave up on his talent because the incident broke him.
He said he had to slow down after the incident and that he is back now to continue from where he stopped with more hit songs to take over the industry.
“I was at the airport already with Patoranking and I went there with the fan base but some few fans were coming to meet us up at the airport and the incident happened and I had to cancel my concert because of the accident.” he narrated.
“It wasn’t easy for me. I nearly stopped the music”, he added.
“You know, for somebody to love you, support you and die for you, it’s not easy. So, I nearly stopped music but because of the encouragement from my fan base and then my management, they give me the hope to work again,” he added.
“Northern Region, we are one family so the families took it cool, everybody understands everything. They said I am also their son or their daughter so, everybody was like those that lost their people took it like it was God’s grace and then they welcome me, I went to visit every family that lost their children so whatever happened we give it to almighty Allah,” he said.
He said the decision to cancel the concert was his and his management’s and that human lives mattered more as compared to making money.
