Kano Killings – More to Come?

Are we to expect more Kano killings? The killers of an Igbo woman, Mrs Bridget Agbahime, aged 74, in Kano for alleged blasphemy have expressed their readiness to kill anyone who insults the Prophet Muhammad, according to Sahara Reporters.

Kano Killings

Kano Governor -Abdullahi Ganduje

In spite of a stakeholders’ meeting between Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, and prominent community and religious leaders, some residents of the state have vowed to kill again if anyone blasphemes the Holy Prophet.
The Igbo woman was killed after she refused to allow a Muslim man perform ablution in front of her shop.
The Kano state governor, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, who met and condoled with the husband of the deceased, Pastor Mike Agbahime, during the meeting, described the action of the mob as illegal and unjust. The governor condemned the killing of Agbahime and promised that justice would be done.
However, following a post of photos of the meeting and the resolutions reached by the Director-General, Media and Communications to the Kano Governor, Salihu Tanko Yakasai, on Ganduje’s official Facebook page, some Nigerians appeared to be spoiling for a fight as they condemned the state government for taking sides with the deceased, whom they claimed insulted Prophet Muhammad and promised that anybody who did such would suffer the same fate as the woman.
When asked about the apparent Facebook threats, the Director of Muslim Rights Concern, Prof. Ishaq Akintola, had this to say:

“The JNI has condemned the killing. The Sultan (of Sokoto) also condemned it. The Emir of Kano (Muhammad Sanusi) has always been on the side of dialogue. Let’s not look for non-existent residents. Those who matter have spoken. What we should all do at this point is to assist the police in ensuring that justice is done.”

Will the Kano killings continue? Is Kano a Sharia State now?

The traditional wedding ceremony honoured both Nigerian and Ghanaian traditions. It included the Ghanaian “knocking” ceremony, where the groom’s family formally asks for the bride’s hand in marriage.

This dance was a respectful blend of both cultures’ heritages, creating a beautiful and moving moment.

Fireboy On How He Got Ed Sheeran On 'Peru' remix | Fab.ng

Nigerian music star Fireboy DML recently shared a fascinating story about his hit collaboration with global music sensation Ed Sheeran on the remix of Fireboy’s 2021 chart-topping single, “Peru.”

In a recent interview with Billboard News, the 28-year-old singer revealed that the collaboration came about after a friend of Ed Sheeran’s introduced the song to the British superstar. Fireboy revealed that Ed Sheeran himself reached out to him, expressing his interest in the song after a friend shared it with him.

Fireboy further disclosed that prior to this remarkable collaboration, he had expressed his fervent desire for a “global hit” that would significantly transform his life path.

“I remember praying for a song that would breakthrough on a global scale, something that would truly change my life forever,” Fireboy said, reflecting on the period before the collaboration.

“At the time, ‘Essence’ was enjoying significant popularity, and this inspired me to aim for even greater achievements. I would like to contribute to my genre by having a song that cuts across the whole world and changes my life forever.” he added.

“God gave me ‘Peru’, so the song blew up, amazing record. You know when a song blows up and it becomes this annoying record you hear everywhere in Africa, in Nigeria, especially in Lagos.

“It needed something special so it came in the form of the collaboration with Ed Sheeran. I was in the studio that day I remember when I got the call from Mr Kareem, he works with my label and he was like, guess what? Ed Sheeran is going to be on your record.

“Check your DM, I think he has sent you a DM. He has recorded the verse, everything is ready and I was like, what? But apparently, Jamal Edwards sent the song to Ed Sheeran.

“So after I got the call, I checked my messages on Instagram, and he had sent me a DM together with a voice note, and when I listened to verse, I was like this verse is fire.”

And that is how the chart-topping Peru Remix came about.

Sportswear giant Adidas is teaming up with the estate of the legendary reggae musician Bob Marley to release a special edition of their classic SL 72 running shoe. This exciting collaboration is expected to launch as part of Adidas’ Summer 2024 collection, according to information discovered by Complex magazine.

While Adidas has yet to officially confirm the release, whispers of the collaboration have been swirling. Zuri Marley, granddaughter of the reggae icon, even shared a glimpse of the sneakers on her TikTok account recently.

The highly anticipated Bob Marley x Adidas SL 72 (identified by style code JP5171) features a sleek black upper adorned with vibrant green and wine-coloured accents on the sole. It proudly displays Bob Marley’s image and name on the tongue and sock liner, while his signature is elegantly embossed in gold on the heel. This unique design promises to be a must-have for fans of both the iconic musician and classic footwear.

Adidas has a rich history of incorporating Bob Marley’s iconic style into its designs. However, the upcoming SL 72 marks the first official sneaker collaboration between the brand and the reggae legend’s estate. Marley, a known fan of the brand, was often photographed wearing Adidas apparel and footwear, including the SL 72 model. Previous projects hinting at this connection include the 2008 Adidas Pro Model, released in partnership with Marley’s record label, Tuff Gong. Further collaborations have emerged alongside the recent resurgence of interest in Marley, sparked by the film “Bob Marley: One Love,” including Jamaica-themed Adidas projects and a dedicated Bob Marley collection by designer Jerry Lorenzo’s Fear of God Athletics line, produced in conjunction with Adidas.
