Fans ‘disappointed’ with Zango over Sabon Salo Volume 2

Kannywood multi-talented star Adam Zango recently released the Volume 2 of hit 2013 album, Sabon Salo, Volume 1.

However, unlike its predecessor, Sabon Salo Vol. 2 failed to meet the expectations of Zango’s fans.

The highly anticipated Vol. 2 was expected to be much like Vol. 1; youth-oriented with some Hausa love songs.

“I’ve never been this disappointed with Adam Zango since he began his career as a Kannywood actor and a singer,” said a fan, Hassana Yunusa. “He really messed up in Sabon Salo Volume 2. He was busy trying to copy American singers and did not even get it right. I couldn’t allow my children to watch the videos.”

Ms. Yunusa pointed out that in contrast to the moral tone of Vol. 1, Vol. 2 glorified drinking and smoking. She, however, said Zango remained her favourite Kannywood actor.

A music promoter, Younus Moo, who spoke to PREMIUM TIMES in Abuja, said, despite his talent, Zango did not get it right this time.

“As a marketer of northern music and Kannywood films, I can tell you that many people were not happy with Zango’s album,” Mr. Moo said. “I sold many copies of the musical video but many of the buyers returned later to complain that they had wasted their money. They said Adam moved from singing good songs to trying to imitate American rappers, which is far from what his target audience wants.”

Mr. Moo also said that the album’s sale had dropped and he had a lot of stock leftover. He, however, expressed faith that Adam would do better in a subsequent effort.

“I believe Zango is a great talent and will surely give his larger fans the kind of music they expect from him,” he said.

Even in Zango’s home state, Kaduna, the sentiments were the same. Most of the marketers complained about the sharp change in his style of music from Vol. 1 to Vol. 2.

Hassan Garba, a fan of Zango in Kano, said: “You will hardly see or hear people listening to the album in public places unlike before. When I asked why, they complained about the change in style.”

Zango, apart from being a singer, is a celebrated Kannywood actor. In April, he won the Best Actor award at the Kwankwasiyya Awards for the film, Karen Bana.

    Prof, in drilling holes in Buhari’s media briefing, it is apparent that you also fell for the misinformation of a media yet to purge themselves of sleaze. You blatantly failed to argue that these men are being held for seperate and different charges apart from the ones they were freed on bail. All you focus on were former bails which have been subsumed by fresh investigations. This is what your write-up failed to consider.

    Okey,…..Nigerians who want good for their wives and children (all citizens and living comfortably under the protective laws of US) but want nothing of such goods for the children back home in Nigeria. They continue to support the wicked amongst us, the thieves amongst us, the looters, the ritualist and all sorts. I would think their is enough for okey to write on in the States than worrying himself about us here. After all we are the ones living here, will decide what we want.
    Keep supporting Dasuki and his likes, we know it’s not for free…..I guess easy cash to make prof. good luck.
    I pray your conscience preaches to you. Past 9 – 12 months you have gradually slipped to the path of Femi Aribisala, Shaka and Akin Osuntokun and likes – Good luck.

    I am actually surprised and very disappointed that an otherwise very objective and respected public commentator like Okey Ndibe deliberate chose to feign ignorance of the truth regarding the rearrest of Dasuki and Kalu! Mr. Okey Ndibe, those fellas are being charged for separate offences and we know you aware of that. No matrer how hard you tried to distort the fact,we all know what the truth is. I guess the Ibo in you got the better part of you

      There is the spirit and then the letter of the law. There are just ways of doing things and underhand ways of doing the same the choice is always there but people should be allowed to express to express their honest opinion of what they have observed. Secondly when you impute tribal motives into your argument that negates everything you have tried to say.

    Those that were granted bail posted the bail and were released on the said bail, but were re-arrested on other charges that not filed yet.finally both are flight risk and both have resources to jump bail.

    The article is interesting in many respects. Should the President men disobey our courts. Are our judges ruling with the integrity that is required of them. Are the judges ruling correctly on Nigerian laws that are required to protect Nigeria from criminal and seditious acts. Should Nigeria reform and be specific on laws that border on the human rights of individuals to move to any part of the world for health reasons even where they are yet to defend serious charges against them in Nigeria and for which bail can be denied on any suspicion of absconding from justice.
    Discussion and answers to the above questions are more relevant than taking sides based on emotional attachment to serious issues of in-your-face corruption, rule of law, economic/political/social/ethnic dispensations currently troubling Nigeria.
