Inspiring Greatness: Tribute to Sheikh Imam Muhammed Sanni

Sheikh Imam Muhammed Sanni

Sheikh Imam Muhammed Sanni

Sheikh Imam Muhammed Sanni's life serves as a testament to the values of kindness, compassion, and service to others. Born to a father who migrated from Ilorin to Ghana, settling in Cape Coast, Sheikh Imam Muhammed Sanni was the first of five children. His father, an Imam, married a Fanti woman, and Sheikh Muhammed Sanni was sent to study in Kumasi under the guidance of Mallam Mai Kano's father.

Upon completing his studies and returning home, Sheikh Muhammed Sanni announced his father's passing to the local mallams. Despite suggestions that he should succeed his father as the Imam, he humbly declined, instead recommending the appointment of his father's second in command (Naibi) as the new Imam, a position he served for 16 years.

During his tenure as an Imam from 1968 to 1988, Sheikh Muhammed Sanni played a pivotal role in acquiring land for the construction of the central mosque in Cape Coast. Known for his philanthropy, he offered assistance to those in need, regardless of their background, leading to many converts to Islam among the Fanti people.

Despite numerous offers, Sheikh Muhammed Sanni never accepted any traditional chieftaincy titles, preferring to be of service to others. He encouraged education and helped many lesser-known mallams rise to prominence.

At his passing, mallams from Ilorin came to offer their final prayers and support for the completion of the central mosque, highlighting his impact and legacy. Sheikh Imam Muhammed Sanni's life exemplifies the values of kindness, compassion, and selfless service, leaving a lasting impact on the Cape Coast community.

Sheikh Imam Muhammed Sanni is the father of the present Iyalode of Cape Coast.

I’ve heard many stories about my great grandfather and from the comments under this article, and the fact that this article was even written, shows how great of a man he was. I wish I could have met him while he was here but inshallah we will meet in Jannatul Firdaus.
Fatima Oba
My grandfather was an amazing man. In today’s day and age it’s rare to find people like him. Someone who takes the time to teach others about the beauty of Islam and has the patience to deal with almost any situation. Married couples wouldn’t go to court to solve their issues, no, they would seek my grandfather’s help. Even though he struggled financially he never neglected going to the house of Allah. He brought all of us grandkids together and taught us the Holy Quran and our religion. We miss you a lot grandpa we wish you were still here.
Alhaja Zainabu Aro Sanni
My father was a very selfless and kind human being. He brought peace among those that converted to Islam and offered great hospitality to visitors. You are a shining light and a prime example of a great Muslim for all and you are surely missed my father.

Farouck M-BASHAR
I have fond memories of how he used to deliver his khutba during Jumma'a prayers. I remember when he and Sarkin Zango Mazzawaje were received when returning from Hajj in Mecca in an open-top car through Ayiko-ayiko with virtually the whole Muslim community and some curious Christians following the convoy on foot. I also recall stories of how the Ayiko-ayiko folks backed his nomination as Imam with the controversies that ensued. May Allah bless his soul and that of all our parents, and Muslim umma as a whole.

Trenchard Hall, University of Ibadan

In a bid to honour the rich history and significance of Yoruba culture and heroes, the organizers of the Tribute Concert and Awards 2024/ All Yoruba Heroes Summit have selected Trenchard Hall, University of Ibadan, as the venue for the event's media launch. This decision comes after a thorough assessment by representatives of the TC Awards/All Yoruba Summit organizing team, who found the hall to be not only suitable but also deeply resonant with the essence of the summit.

Trenchard Hall holds a special place in the hearts of the people in Ibadan and its environs, as it has been the host to many great events. Its historical significance, coupled with its modern amenities, makes it the perfect setting for an event that aims to celebrate and honour Yoruba heroes worldwide.

Ibadan, known for its rich cultural heritage and vibrant atmosphere, provides an ideal backdrop for the media launch of an event of this magnitude. The city's allure and charm are sure to enhance the experience for attendees and create a memorable event.

The decision to hold the media launch at Trenchard Hall follows the successful launch of the first edition of the TC Awards, which took place at Cleaver House in Accra, Ghana, on 6 October 2021. The launch set the tone for the main event in June 2022, attracting prominent personalities, including royal fathers and mothers from Ghana and beyond. The event garnered extensive media coverage, with over 25 news media platforms, including print, TV, radio, and social media, reporting on it. The evening was further enriched by a captivating music performance by one of Ghana's most renowned saxophonists.

Celebrating Chief Ambassador Kolawole Aderoju: A Veteran Journalist and Advocate for Yoruba Heritage

Chief Ambassador Kolawole Aderoju, popularly known as Àkùko Alaafin or Àkùko Odùduwà has dedicated over 40 years to journalism, broadcasting, and media practice. His journey in the media world has been marked by excellence, integrity, and a deep commitment to his roots.

Born in Ibadan, Oyo state, Chief Ambassador Kolawole Aderoju's career highlights include serving as the liaison officer of the late Alaafin of Oyo for more than 12 years. In this role, his primary responsibility was to locate and repatriate the lost children of Oyo, those whose ancestry tied back to the Yoruba heritage but who were unaware or disconnected from it. His efforts in this regard, known as Àwárí Omo Odùduwà, have led to the return of over 5 million sons and daughters of Yoruba to Oyo.

Chief Ambassador Kolawole Aderoju's impact transcends borders, as he tirelessly moves from one country to another, bridging the gap for those seeking to rediscover their roots. His dedication to this cause has not only enriched the cultural heritage of Oyo but has also rekindled a sense of identity and belonging among the Yoruba diaspora.

As the Nigeria representative and correspondent for the prestigious Tribute Concert and Awards, as well as the All Yoruba Heroes Summit to be held in Accra, Ghana in October 2024, Chief Ambassador Kolawole Aderoju continues to be a beacon of inspiration. His contributions to journalism, cultural preservation, and community development are exemplary, and we celebrate his achievements with profound admiration.

On this special occasion, we wish Chief Ambassador Kolawole Aderoju a happy birthday, praying for God's continued blessings, good health, and prosperity in all his endeavours. May his legacy inspire generations to come, and may his efforts in preserving the Yoruba heritage continue to bear fruits for years to come.

ALAO MALAIKA HEADLINING THE UPCOMING ALL YORUBA HEROES SUMMIT IN GHANA.

Alao Malaika and the Olumegbon of Ghana

Alao Malaika and the Olumegbon of Ghana

The upcoming Tribute Concert and Awards/All Yoruba Heroes Summit in October 2024 promises to be a truly special event with the confirmation of Alao Malaika as the headlining musician. This announcement comes after weeks of anticipation, as the planning committee deliberated over inviting one of Nigeria's top musicians for the occasion. Alao Malaika's participation is particularly noteworthy as artists of his calibre often have packed schedules, rarely leaving Nigeria for performances on weekends due to multiple engagements that bring significant revenue.

The credit for securing Alao Malaika's presence goes to Alhaji Abdul Lateef (Olumegbon), who not only extended the personal invitation but also took on the responsibility of covering the associated costs. Alhaji Lateef's influence and generosity have made this exciting collaboration possible. This rare opportunity to experience Malaika's performance outside of Nigeria is a testament to the dedication and vision of the planning team behind the event.

The performance is scheduled for a Saturday, the banquet dinner of the event, ensuring that a wider audience can attend. Admission to the venue will be free for regular attendees, thanks to the support of Chief Alhaji Lateef, CEO of Big Hajia Enterprises and a prominent figure in Ghana's business landscape. As the Chief Amuludun of Ghana and a generous patron of the Tribute Concert and Awards, Chief Alhaji Lateef's commitment to celebrating Yoruba culture and honouring its heroes is evident in this collaboration with Alao Malaika.
