to the research database on Hausa popular literature
and video film.
This is not a commercial site and none of the books
and videos mentioned here can be bought from us.
research database is under construction and will
be amended as new information is incorporated.
This project is supported by a grant from the British
on the database:
database documents the private collection of Hausa
popular literature and video film in the possession
of Professor Graham Furniss of the School of Oriental
and African Studies, University of London.
Other collections in Nigeria and elsewhere may
contain other texts and videos, and our plan in
due course will be to offer an authoritative listing
by collaborating over the web with colleagues
in Nigeria and elsewhere.
