Hausa Artistes Protest conferment of chieftaincy title on Korede Bello

The conferment of the chieftaincy title of Sarkin Wakan Kano on Korede Bello by the Kano Emirate Council seem not to have gone down well with some entertainers from the area. One of them, a renowned Kannywood movie producer and director, Falalu Dorayi said the action is demoralizing to Hausa musicians. He said there are many indigenous Hausa musicians deserving of the honour.
According to him:

‘’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’’

The Kano Emirate is yet to react to this.
