Talking about the upcoming election, Mr Ali revealed that a number of concerts have been organized to preach and spread the message of peace to the entire northern region and the country at large.
In his acceptance speech, Fancy Gadam expressed his profound gratitude to his loyal fans and family for their support and encouragement in his music career.
