An Upper Shariah Court in Kano on Tuesday ordered the Divisional Police Office of Kwali Quarters in the Kano metropolis to investigate a popular Kano-based Hausa artiste, Dauda Kahutu, aka Rarara, for allegedly featuring a married woman, Maryam Muhammad, in his music video without the consent of her husband.

The court also directed that the woman, Maryam, and the singer’s producer, Abubakar Maishada, be investigated for the roles they played in the matter.

The woman’s husband, Abdulkadir Inuwa, had filed a suit before the court alleging that the singer eloped with his wife and featured her in a recent music video, titled, ‘Jihata, Jihata ce.’

Inuwa told the court that for about three months, he did not know the whereabouts of his wife, whom he lawfully married over five months ago.

He sought redress from the court, saying the act violated his fundamental rights as a husband.

Earlier, the counsel for the artiste, Muhammad Bello, told the court that Rarara did not know the woman in question and that his producer was responsible for hiring dancers and paying them.

He, therefore, urged the court to dismiss the case.

The presiding Shariah Judge, Ibrahim Yola, however, overruled the appeal.

Yola directed the DPO Kwali Quarters to investigate the singer, Maryam, and the producer and adjourned the matter till February 2, 2021.
