Hausa Actor Protests as Korede Bello Bags Chieftaincy Title in Kano

Emir of Kano's son HRH Adam Ashraf Lamido Sanusi and Korede Bello

A renowned Kannywood movie producer and director, Falalu Dorayi, has expressed reservations over the conferment of chieftaincy title of ‘’Sarkin waka’’ on Nigerian musician Korede Bello who is not a northerner by the Kano state emirate council.

According to DailyTrust, Korede was conferred with the title in recognition of his contribution to the society through music. Writing on his Instagram, Dorayi criticized the gesture arguing that there are many indigenous Hausa singers in Kano who deserve the title instead of Korede.

He described the 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. 

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.

Dorayi stated that Nazir Ahmad should have been given the title because he deserves it.

‘’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 good friend of Emir of Kano's son HRH Adam Ashraf Lamido Sanusi. They have been spotted together recently during a fun horse-riding.

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 which topped many music charts in the country.
