Emir of Kano is set to marry his longtime partner.
Glamtush reports that the Emir of Kano, Aminu Bayero, is set to marry a woman believed to be his longtime partner, simply identified as Hajiyayye, in the Dorayi area of the Kano metropolis.
The emir, who only has a wife and four children, will cut his polygamous teeth after more than three decades of monogamy.
Insiders say secret plans have been underway between representatives of the royal family and the fiancee’s family.
Sources say there will be no pomp and pageantry.
“The wedding will take place in a matter of days or weeks. It has been suspended multiple times in the past and since it will be a low-key event, it can take place at any time.
“The emir has been courting Hajiyayye for years before he became an emir. But this time, plans have been finalized for the wedding to take place,” said sources.
