The Kano State Government has filed a court case against a popular Kannywood artiste, Sadiq Zazzabi, inviting him to appear before a Kano-based court 3, over his inability to censor the lyrics and the visuals for his recently-unveiled video.

The singer, being sued by the Kano State Censors’ Board (KSCB), would have to appear before the said court on March 1, 2017.

Zazzabi, who unveiled a song about the former Kano State governor, Rabi’u Musa Kwankwaso, raised the alarm some time back that he was being deprived of his freedom of expression by the KSCB, through the State Security Service (SSS).

However, when he reported to the offices of the SSS, they could not detain him for want of “substantial evidence.”

The singer said, “The agency didn’t harass or intimidate me. They are very professional.
We discussed how and when the fracas started.”

He said, “It happened weeks ago when I intended to unveil my latest song, in which I praised my political idol, Senator Rabi’u Musa Kwankwaso. I organised an award ceremony to honour him and other ‘Kwankwasiyya’ movement members. I used that opportunity and unveil the song, but prior to that event, I submitted my song to the board for censoring, because I don’t want to be seen as a law breaker.”
