Abdulrasheed Ahmad, a Hausa singer, has released a tribute song to Femi Fani-Kayode, a former minister of aviation, over his recent visit to Zamfara state.
The less than 8-minute project, dubbed ‘F.F.K 7 Days in Zamfara’, was released on Monday.
The song sees Ahmad, better known as Abdul Danarewa, crooning about his admiration for the former minister, whom he referred to as “our brave hero”.
It also sees him aver that FFK’s suggestions during his short stay in Zamfara would help Bello Matawalle, the governor, and other stakeholders reflect on how to further develop the state.
“FFK! call him a hero! swear to you…I am here to show my gratitude to our legend hero. My brave and hero boss, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode. The seven days he spent at Zamfara made us proud,” he could be heard singing.
He also hailed the conferment of ‘Sadaukin Shinkafi’, a traditional title, on FFK during the visit, saying that such was indicative of the state’s appreciation of his efforts.
“He was turbaned and everyone one knows about that. He is ‘Sadaukin Shinkafi’ my hero…during the seven he days be spent in Zamfara, he brought much advice of progress and projects on how to develop the city” he added.
Ahmad said FFK’s love for the region has made him a “northerner” while also urging others from the area to see him as one of them.
“…FFK is now running to contest, but I am going to pass my question to you, my fellow northerners, he said he and the north will merge as one…FFK is now a northerner, you heard me,” the singer said.
TheCable had earlier reported how the conferment of the title on the former minister stirred outrage in Shinkafi emirate of the state.
