Dauda ‘Rarara’ Kahutu, the Kano-based singer, has asked a high Shari’ah court to dismiss the N10 million lawsuit filed against him.


Muhammad Ma’aji, a businessman, had accused the singer of failing to pay over N10 million.

At the resumed court hearing session presided over by Halhalatul Khuza’i Zakariyya in Rigiyar Zaki, Kano, G. A. Badawi, Rarara’s counsel, argued that the case lacked merit and should be disregarded by the court.

Badawi said they had submitted a written response to Ma’aji and the court, but the prosecution claimed to have received it late.


Ma’aji, the complainant, however, told the court that he has documented evidence in writing to support his claims against Rarara.

He said since his business dealings with Rarara started in 2021, he has yet to receive any payment from the singer.

In his verdict, Zakariyya ordered the prosecution counsel to provide a written response to the defense counsel and the court.


The judge thereafter adjourned the case to May 12 for further hearing.

Rarara is famous for his performances during the campaign rallies of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kano.

Last month, his house in Kano was invaded by hoodlums and set ablaze.

The state police were said to have arrested some suspects in connection to the incident.
