Kano Emirate Council Denies Crowning Korede Bello As Sarkin Waka

Kano state emirate council has said it did not confer much debated chieftaincy title of Sarkin wakan Kano on Korede Bello.

Dan Buram Kano, Alhaji Munir Sanusi who is also the chief of staff of Kano emirate council stated this on Friday in response to the information making the rounds that the Emir of Kano Malam Muhammadu Sanusi II had conferred the title on the Lagos based musician.

He said the emirate has no intention to that effect and has never engaged in any discussion with the musician to that respect and thus described the information as mere rumour and baseless.

Falalu Dorayi, a Kannywood movie producer and director had earlier expressed reservations over the purported conferment of the title on southern musician arguing that there are many indigenous Hausa singers in Kano who deserved the title.

Dorayi who took to the instagram to express his opinion about the development described the alleged action of the emirate council as demoralizing to northern youth emphasizing that ‘’no matter how bad indigenous Hausa singers are, it is not fair to cross over to Lagos to pick Sarkin wakan Kano.

‘’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.

Dailytrust 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.

He advised the northern elite to cherish their cultural heritage saying it is the only way Hausa culture could gain respect in the eyes of the world.

Korede is a Nigerian singer and song writer currently signed to Mavin Records. He is best known for his hit single ‘’Godwin’’ a semi-gospel and pop song.

The musician was actually in Kano on invitation of one of the Emir’s sons during Eid-Kabir sallah celebration where he participated in Sallah Durbar with Emir’s son in full Hausa traditional regalia.

Investigation revealed that it was during the durbar that the spectators on sighting the musician started to hail him as sarkin waka.

The rumour however started when the musician posted the durbar pictures with the caption Sarkin waka on his social media handles.
