hi i am unable to perform following command : git commit -m 'Initial commit with contributor's'

and getting message: 

*** Please tell me who you are.

Run

git config --global user.email "you@example.com"
git config --global user.name "Your Name"

to set your account's default identity.
Omit --global to set the identity only in this repository.

fatal: unable to auto-detect email address (got 'abc10@123.(none)')
