“Dr.who, its true that there has been clashes between supporters of two local artistes,Fancy Gadam and Macassion but the Chief has never banned entertainment shows in the city”,Dj Carlos told Dr.Who with much passion.
“In fact, Kalybos is coming to premier his “Amarkye and Dede” movie this weekend and Fancy Gadam will also be launching his new album on Saturday… we were extremely surprised to hear such a statement so we went to the chief palace to ascertain the truth of the matter which he told us that he never asked Mohammed Hafiz Abdulai Demanaa to release such a falsehood…thus he is surprised how Hafiz was able to release a press statement with the letterhead of the palace.So Dr.who, it is not true”,Dj Carlos added.
