THE HAUSA LANGUAGE
More than 50 million people across northern Nigeria, Niger, northern Cameroon, and Ghana speak the Hausa language. Despite not being recognized as the official language of any country, the influence of Hausa on African culture and people has remained for centuries.
Hausa is used for trade, commerce, and even involved in the processes of tanning of fine Moroccan leather and dying indigo cloth. This language is woven deeply into many aspects of African life.
It is typical to hear the Hausa language in the primary schools of Nigeria and it is also spoken as a common language across West Africa. Diasporic communities in the Sudan and Saudi Arabia also speak this language.
