BREAKING: Popular singer sentenced to death
By Yusuf Adua
A Shari’a Court sitting at Hausawa Quarters in Kano has sentenced a 22-year old singer Yahaya Aminu Sharif to death by hanging for blasphemy against Prophet Muhammad S.A.W.
The Shari’a court Khadi, Aliyu Muhammad Kani, who ruled on Monday found Sharif guilty of the one-count charge bordering on derogatory comment contained in one of his songs.
Sharif, a resident of Sharifai quarters in Kano municipal, was accused of committing blasphemy against the prophet in a song he circulated via WhatsApp in March 2020.
People got to know of this shameful act on the 4th of March, 2020, when hundreds of angry youths stormed the Kano Hisbah board headquarters in protest against what they considered an uncomplimentary and distasteful assault on prophet Muhammad.
The youths accused government and security agencies of undue protection and failure to act appropriately against the artiste.
The ravenous youths had earlier demolished the family house of the singer after his disappearance when they invaded the residence.
