Kano-based Arewa singer, Dauda Kahutu Rarara, is currently being investigated by the police and may face prosecution for featuring a married woman in one of his music video production recently.
Rarara who is said to be the official political singer for President Buhari and many other APC leaders in the country had featured one Maryam Muhammad, 20, in one of his music videos titled ‘JAHATA JAHATA TACE’.
According to a report by PM News, Maryam’s husband had filed a suit against the singer before the state’s Shariah Court, and the Kwali Police Division in Kano State was ordered to probe the political Hausa musician for the act which has been tagged ‘unIslamic.
In his ruling, the Shariah court judge, Sarki Yola, noted that ‘the court can not dismiss the suit instituted by the husband of Maryam, on the claim that the singer was not aware of her marital status.” The judge, therefore asked the Kwali Police Station to look into the matter thoroughly and present its findings to the court.
Investigations show that Maryam Muhammad had left her husband Abdulkadir Inuwa at home a few months after their wedding without his knowledge until she appeared in the music video with Rarara.
The counsel for the singer had asked the court to dismiss the case, as no investigation has been done by the police on the claims of the husband.
However, the court judge, Khadi Sarki Yola has asked the DPO Kwalli Police division to summon the singer Rarara and his producer, Bashir Maishadda, with a view to investigating the veracity of the claims, and thereby adjourned the case till further notice.
