Career

Ahmad has spoken of his love for Hausa music icons like Mamman Shata, and Dankwairo. “To be candid, I can’t specifically say what attracted my soul to music, but I had nurtured a dream of being a musician since I was seven. I started singing when there was no music studio in Kano. I would sing in front of gatherings and even as then I was applauded and celebrated. I went fully into music in 2000.”
