Rahama Haruna is the 19 year old Northern Nigerian girl born without limbs and majority of her body.

Her rare disability forces her to be carried around by a member of her family in a green plastic bowl. There is no known medical or scientific reason for her disability…it just happened. Pictures of the disabled teenager who has learnt to make the best out of her situation and stay happy went viral last week on social media after they were published online by photojournalist Maikatanga Sani.

Rahama lives in Kano state and makes a living by begging for alms with her 14 year old brother who carries the plastic bowl she sits in on his head as they both beg for alms.

With her picture gaining nationwide attention it caught the attention of Mavin princess Di’Ja who visited her on January 10 at her home town of Ladin Makole.

Is Nigerian music about to make it’s way onto mainstream American radio?

It is common knowledge that the US market is the hardest for any artiste to break into! Successful UK acts have been trying for decades to break the North American market but only a handful have been able to make any type of impact on the charts over there.

With the Nigerian music industry at an all time high, gaining attention from mainstream music acts like Jay Z, Kanye West & Drake, could our music be ready to conquer the US charts?

In April Jay Z announced his cousin was in Nigeria to sign artistes to Tidal & Roc Nation, just last week Drake jumped on the remix of Wizkid’s Ojuelegbaand just a few moments ago, popular radio personalities – Ebro of one of New York City’s most popular radio stations – Hot 97 announced that he was going to debut a new track from Don Jazzy, Reekado Banks & Di’Ja featuring Jay Electronica called Get Down, he also announced he was dedicating 5 whole minutes to Nigerian music on his primetime radio show.
