How it all began

He later formed alliance with Ibrahim Shekarau, another former governor of the state. He also dumped him to team u with Rabiu Kwankwaso, also a former governor and now with Abdullahi Ganduje, the incumbent governor of the state.

“When I first came to Kano my political godfather was a former Kano state deputy governor, Engr. Tijjani Gwarzo. When we fell out with each other, I joined Ibrahim Shekarau’s team and when I was no longer comfortable with Shekarau’s camp I joined Kwankwaso and now I am with Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje.”

When asked about his net worth, he said; “Well I am not paying rent. I have my own business outfit, Rarara musical studio. I have choice vehicles. I am comfortable so to speak. But mind you we have richer guys in the industry, all I can say is I am not doing badly?”.


Demanded donation for his album

Dauda Kahutu in 2020 asked Nigerians to sponsor his next album (harp-song) with a token of N1000 each.

In a two minutes video he posted on his social media pages and also shared by many on Twitter and Instagram, the singer, also known as Rarara, said he is asking for the donations “to prove to Nigerians that President Buhari’s supporters are solidly behind him”.

“I want to make a new song for the president and what I want to do this time around is to ask every of his supporter to fund the new song project. I want every one of you to contribute the sum of N1000 into my account to prove to Nigerians that Buhari’s fan base is still intact despite the economic hardship Nigerians are facing,” Rarara said.

Allegedly composed a song insulting Buhari

However, I have been releasing more songs since then. I also heard that there was a song in the market which some people think it was my song. Honestly it is not true you know I will never do that.”
