RIP to a legend.Born Sa'adatu Aliyu in Kaduna in 1943, Barmani Choge ventured into music at 27.

Choge, who popularised the mature Hausa women genre of music called Amada, was one of the best female Hausa singers from Northern Nigeria.

The Amada is centered around five upturned calabashes floating on water and played with the hands by elderly women.

Without fear of tradition or religion, Choge's songs talked about serious social issues like women’s education and the importance of small-scale trading by women, to vulgar topics like co-wives as idle snobs, voluptuous women’s backsides, etc.

The core message of her songs is that women should get up and shine in a male-dominated world.

Barmani Choge’s music didn’t only make women dance, it also made them think about their statuses in society.

Choge died in 2013 after a long battle with diabetes and paralysis. She was 70. She was survived by six children and 60 grandchildren. #HistoryVille

The palace of the Lagos monarch, Oba Rilwanu Akiolu, was the first to be attacked by violent mob, with the palace being eventually vandalised and torched just few moments after the king was evacuated to safety by security agencies.
The palace in Iga Iduganran in the heart of Lagos island was thrown like many places within the metropolis, into confusion as thugs raided and looted the palace.

In the process, the staff of office (Opa Ase) was taken away by hoodlums seen on social media posts mocking the symbol of Lagos’ traditional authority, an act that many have described as “sacrilegious and abominable.”

A few kilometres from the palace, the Lagos City Hall also came under attack on a sad day that witnessed the torching of a high court, at least three ......
