Videos of Fulani Christian choirs performing during church services in their communities has been flying all over social media with many amused, surprised and confused, with hundreds of thousands talking about it.
The first video appeared a couple of weeks ago and many Northern Muslims social media influencers and the their followers sharing it. One particular individual wrote that since Islamic leaders have failed, Christian proselytizers are now cashing in and converting their people.
Within the past twenty four hours thousands of people have shared the videos, these time not one particular video but different videos. Some Muslims in the North have told NEWISSUES they are Tuareq from Niger Republic, but the problem with that classification is that the Tuareg are mixed with Fulanis in Nigeria and one hardly knows the difference.
However, a source have informed NEWISSUES that, the videos were that of Fulanis in Taraba State.
What most people do not know is that we have always have Fulani Muslims and Hausa (Bahuashe) who are Muslims and have remain Muslims among their people despite all Nigeria’s problems of religion.
Many Fulani pastoralist (Fulani herdsmen) are neither Muslims or Christians.
