Hisbah: Male DJs banned from female events in Kano

The Kano State Hisbah board has prohibited male DJs from performing at events primarily attended by women

The Commander General, CG of the Hisbah board, Sheik Aminu Ibrahim Daurawa revealed this during a meeting with some representatives of disc jockeys on Tuesday in Kano state.

Sheikh Daurawa, addressing the DJs said the decision became necessary in order to prohibit mixing of males and females together during an event.

According to the CG, only women would be allowed henceforth to officiate at women’s gatherings such as weddings and naming ceremonies while men should preside over men’s gathering.

“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 immortality in the society”.

He also mentioned that a previous meeting had been conducted with owners and managers of event centers in the state to raise awareness about complying with the laws governing their operations.

During his speech, Ibrahim Abdullahi, also known as DJ Farawa, representing the DJs, praised the Hisbah board for extending an invitation and providing guidance on the new regulations aimed at directing their business activities.

“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 added that all DJs performing in the state must adhere to the new guidelines issued by the Hisbah board to avoid being sanctioned.
