Islamic Morality Police, Hisbah Bans Male DJs

The Kano State Hisbah Board has banned male disc jockeys (DJs) from performing at female-dominated events in the state.

This ban was announced by the Commander General of the board, Sheikh Aminu Ibrahim Daurawa, at a meeting with the representatives of DJs in the state.

The Hisbah Commander said the decision was necessary to prohibit the mixing of males and females during events, adding that only women would be allowed henceforth to officiate at women’s gatherings.





“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 was quoted by Daily Trust as saying.

He mentioned that another meeting had been held with the state’s event facility owners and managers to educate them about the essential regulations governing their operations.

In his remarks, the DJs’ representative, Ibrahim Abdullahi, also known as DJ Farawa, praised the board for inviting them and instructing them on the new criteria that the board had implemented to regulate 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 also warned that non-registered DJs performing in the state would not be protected by the union if found to have violated the Hisbah guidelines.
