Korede Bello was recently conferred with the title of “Sarkin Waka” by the Kano emirate in recognition of his contribution to the society through music, but some people are not happy with the recognition.
One of such individuals is Kannywood movie producer and director, Falalu Dorayi, who expressed his reservation about the chieftaincy title.
Dorayi says the conferment was demoralising to Northern youths.
He wrote on Instagram, ‘’No matter how bad indigenous Hausa singers are, it is not fair to cross over to Lagos to pick Sarkin Waka 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.’’
