A tribal attack has Followed the conferment of a chieftancy title ‘Sarkin waka’’ on Mavin record Singer, Korede Bello because he is a southern musician.
One Dorayi on Instagram expressed his dissatisfaction about the development describing the action of the emirate council as demoralizing to northern youth.
According to him there are many indigenous Hausa singers in Kano who deserve the title instead emphasizing that ‘’no matter how bad indigenous Hausa singers are, it is not fair to cross over to Lagos to pick Sarkin wakan Kano.
He said though the award of the title has not been made official,
‘’It is not surprising, because northern elites have been like that, they look for us only when they are in need afterwards they short change us for Lagos chaps. All sleepless nights our musicians have been having to bring our traditional leaders and northern politicians to the limelight all they get in return was to have the title shipped to Lagos’’ he lamented
Speaking further in a telephone chat with Daily Trust, Dorayi noted that since the current emir of Kano Mohammad Sanusi II ascended throne, Nazir Ahmad has never ceased from praising him in his songs and thus deserved the title.
‘’In fact, before Sanusi became the emir of Kano, Nazir had envisaged and fore told in his songs of Sanusi becoming Sarkin Kano and it came to pass. I am of the opinion that if justice should be done none deserves this title but Nazir Ahmad’’ he added.
