Things you should know before falling in love with Kano ladies
Love is a natural thing, original thing, mysterious thing and it is unpredictable.
You can find love anywhere even in the northern city of Kano where pretty Hausa speaking girls popularly referred to as
Yarinyan struts the streets in beautiful regalia.
Kano state is among the states in Nigeria that have the most beautiful girls, many of them are slim in stature and they have warming welcome smiles.
If you have the desire to get married to a Hausa girl, you cannot just approach her and spill out some romantic lines and expect her to just fall in love with you like that.
Remember, the mind set and the beliefs of people in the northern part of the country are different from the people in the West, East and southern Nigeria, the people in the north are not as social as the other parts of the country.
So, if you want to successfully marry a Hausa or Kano girl (Yarinyan) you must take note of the followings.
Speak Hausa Language
Even if you speak Queen’s English, if you cannot communicate in Hausa language, your chances may be limited. Being able to speak Hausa means that you have successfully manoeuvred the first hurdle.
With this, you will easily break the ice and she will definitely give you attention. This is not saying English won’t work. But speaking Hausa is a perfect bait!
Being Muslim puts you in a vantage position
Besides speaking Hausa, religion is another key asset northerners consider important. Because Islam is the predominant religion in Kano and by extension other parts of the Northern Nigeria, most ladies from Kano state expect their men to observe this same mode of worship.
Even if the lady accepts your proposal, her parents may not. It is better not to voyage into a relationship if you cannot agree on religion. This doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try your luck!
Have a friend who knows her to signal your interest to her first.
Kano is a conservative state, just like the people. To be on a safe side, it is better to send an intermediary to convey your love message to the lady you have been admiring. You should send a trusted friend who can communicate in Hausa. It is easier and safe.
Kano girls like low key relationships.
Based on their beliefs and practice, Islam dictates the way of life in the largely Muslim in the North. If you want to enjoy a relationship in the northern part of Nigeria, you must stay away from public display of affection, men and women mingling is unacceptable. Keep your relationships out of public eyes.
You have to accept their dress culture.
Kano girls does not dress like western girls. After their normal dressing they still overall clothe called hijab or kaftan that why more often than not, you have the Hausa girl draped with an Islamic veil, and the veil doesn’t show body curves or sensitive parts of the body. If you cannot accept this, you should stay in your lane.
They will commit if you are serious.
Whenever a Hausa lady sees that you are serious about the relationship, she will commit to you with all pleasure.
Don’t let these requirements discourage you, if you have a desire for any Hausa lady, go to her and make your intention know to her. Remember love is unpredictable and blind. You don’t know where you could find it. It may be a cute Hausa girl!
