barahumi official video by nazir M. Ahmad (Sarkin Waka)
The song about the Emir of Kano Muhammadu Sanusi II. In the song Nazir describes how Danmajen Kano Sanusi Lamido became Muhammadu Sanusi II Emir of Kano. 'Barahube' in this context is best understood by its use in the song. Nazir uses it to describe the Emir as the first among equals, a prince and Emir, blessed, favoured, highly educated, commands respect, overcomer, chosen by Allah among other. 'Barahube' seems to be an adjective that describes many things at once not as synonyms but as distinct features of any noun. Nazir uses 'Barahube' to describe how the Emir overcame opposition to ascend the throne of his fathers.
