Kano State Denies Crowning Korede Bello With Chieftaincy Title

The Kano state emirate council has said it did not confer the 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.

Korede 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.
