Kano Hisbah Bans Male DJs from Women's Events

The Kano State Hisbah Board has announced a ban on male Disc Jockeys (DJs) from performing at events predominantly attended by women in the state.

During a meeting with DJs’ representatives in the state, Sheikh Aminu Ibrahim Daurawa, the Commander General of the board, emphasized the decision to prevent the mixing of males and females at such gatherings.

Sheikh Daurawa clarified that moving forward, only women would be permitted to DJ at women’s events in the state.

He said, “As an Islamic state, it is unacceptable for us to allow the indiscriminate mixing of males and females at the same event. This is because this act can promote and spread immorality.”

He noted that previously another meeting was held with owners and managers of event centres in the state to sensitise them about the relevant laws guiding their activities.

In his remarks, the representative of the DJs, Ibrahim Abdullahi, also known as DJ Farawa, commended the board for advising them on the new guidelines introduced by the board to guide their business.

He said, “We are happy with the invitation of the hisbah board to our union of DJs. They have given us guidelines on the sanctity of prayer times during events, as well as the need to prevent the mixing of males and females during those events.”

Ibrahim noted that all DJs performing in the state must adhere to the new guidelines issued by the board to avoid being sanctioned.

He said, “This is why we are calling on all DJs to register with our union in order to benefit from the guidelines that have been issued.”

He warned that non-registered DJs performing in the state would not be protected by the union if they were found to have violated Hisbah’s guidelines.
