  1. The Gravedigger's Wife: Somali love story wins Africa's top film prize at Fespaco A Somali film exploring what people will do for love has won the grand prize at the prestigious Pan-African film festival in Burkina Faso. The Gravedigger's Wife, written and directed by Finish-Somali director Khadar Ahmed, beat off competition at Fespaco from 16 other movies. It focuses on Guled, whose job it is to wait outside hospital to bury the dead, and what he does to save his sick wife. The head of the prize jury called it a courageous film, Reuters reports. "It is a beautiful film that tells a story with humanity," Mauritanian film director Abderrahmane Sissako is quoted as saying. "I'm in awe. I'm speechless. Words can not express my gratitude and appreciation for this type of love from the continent," Ahmed wrote on Instagram. A rare feature-length film in Somali, The Gravedigger's Wife is also Somalia's first entry in the Best International Feature Film category at the Oscars. Set in Djibouti, it details the struggles faced by Guled, played by Omar Abdi, when he learns he has to raise funds to pay for his wife's treatment. Nasra, played by Yasmin Warsame, is dying of kidney failure. Ironically, as a gravedigger, Guled waits for the deaths of others in order to make the money which could mean his wife survives. Ahmed wanted to "tell this story with dignity, tenderness and compassion - all the qualities I've been raised with", the director told the Guardian newspaper. He was born in Somalia but moved to Finland as a teenager. His film was 10 years in the making. Ahmed wrote it a decade ago, but was determined to direct it himself and so had to learn how to be a director, the Guardian reports. As well as winning the prestigious award, known as the Golden Stallion of Yennenga, he also received $36,000 (£26,000) in prize money. The Silver Stallion went to Haitian director Gessica Geneus for her film Freda. And the Bronze Stallion went to the Tunisian director Leyla Bouzid for Tale of Love and Desire. The prizes were handed out at Fespaco's closing ceremony in the Burkinabe capital, Ouagadougou. It was the 27th edition of the week-long biennial event, the continent's biggest film festival that celebrates films largely produced in Africa by Africans. BBC
  2. British Somali TikTok star delights in Nimco Happy’s viral success he is a little-known Somali singer without much of social media presence; fans would be hard pressed to find any information about her online. But Nimco Happy’s catchy song Isii Nafta has conquered the internet this month. The song has been used in more than 98,000 videos on TikTok in the past month and gone similarly viral on Instagram and Twitter, with the likes of the model Bella Hadid and the rapper Cardi B sharing it on their feeds. In the vast majority of clips, people are singing along to the catchy chorus, which switches between Somali, English, Arabic and Swahili. At its heart, Isii Nafta is a love song. The chorus roughly translates as: Ogsoonoo inaan ku jeclahay (Somali for “Know that I love you”) And I love you more than my life Ana hibak yaa habiibi (Arabic for “I love you”) Nakupenda mimi sana (Swahili for “I love you”) Waa ujeedada caashaqayga (Somali for “You can see my love”) Akafi Ali, a British Somali TikTok star with more than 870,000 followers, saw that the song was being used on the app last month, then in just a few hundred videos, and instantly recognised it. A few years ago his mum would play it all the time. A video he went on to post of him dancing to the song at a Somali wedding got more than 1m views in a day. Other notable Somali creators also used the sound and soon it was spreading like wildfire. “She’s singing about love. She’s saying, ‘I love you’ in multiple languages to let that person know that she cares deeply about them. Sometimes communication can be very hard and it’s about overcoming that, because there’s multiple ways of saying ‘I love you’, and that person knowing that ‘I love you’ regardless,” he said. The 25-year-old started making content on social media while he was in school, often comedy sketches about growing up as a British Somali. He is overjoyed to see the song go viral. “It makes me so proud. It’s like a room is being created for us, a space is being made for us. I feel like this is what we’ve always been waiting for,” Ali said. Nimco has yet to release the song herself and profit from its virality. But that is expected to change soon, with BuzzFeed reporting that the singer will be posting her own link to Spotify and other streaming platforms. TikTok’s popularity exploded during the pandemic, as it became the world’s most downloaded app in 2020. Its influence is most acutely felt in the music industry, where it has transformed the way fans first hear songs and remixes. Songs that become viral on the app quickly lead to record number of streams on Spotify and elsewhere. It also affects the charts; the app was credited with helping the single Body by Tion Wayne and Russ Millions become the first drill song to claim the UK No 1 spot. Ali describes Nimco’s emergence as an important moment for the Somali community. Ali was born in Somalia and moved to the UK as a young child. He says he was bullied at school for initially only being able to speak Somali. It is wonderful to see so many people now singing happily in the Somali language, he says. “This is a cultural reset. This is definitely a breakout moment. I would love for her to come to Britain and perform at the Brits awards,” he said. “Oh my God, everybody would get their flags out!” - The Guardian

  4. Labadii xaqdaro ku heshiiso...: Fiqi: “Faataxada haloo maro Midowga Musharaxiinta” Wasiirkii hore ee Amniga Maamulka Galmudug Axmed Macalin Fiqi ayaa shaki geliyay in Midowga Musharaxiinta mucaaridka ay taageersan yihiin dagaalka lagu qaaday ururka Ahlu-Sunna ee ka socda Guriceel. Fiqi ayaa sidoo kale su’aal geliyay cidda hortaagan in war-murtiyeed laga mideysan yahay laga soo saaro xiisada dagaal iyo howl-galka ciidamada dowladda ee ka dhanka ah Ahlu-Sunna. “Midowga Musharixiinta ee wax kasta ka hadli jirey ma hawlgalka Odowaa iyo Qaroole ayay taageersan yihiin!. Yaa hortaagan in warmurtiyeed arrinta Guriceel laga soo saaro!?!?! Faataxada haloo maro midowga!,” ayuu ku yiri qoraal uu soo dhigay bartiisa Facebook. Madaxweynihii hore ee dalka, Xasan Sheekh Maxamuud oo kamid ah Golaha ayaa maanta si shaqsi ah qoraal uga soo saaray dagaalka Guriceel, waana midda tooshka kusii shiday aamusnaanta Midowga Musharaxiinta ay ku wajahayaan xiisadaas. Xasan Sheekh Maxamuud oo war qoraal ah soo dhigay bartiisa Facebook-ga ayaa labada dhinac is-haya ka dalbaday inay si shuruud la’aan u joojiyaan dagaalka haatan ka socda Guriceel. “Waxaan tacsi u dirayaa dhammaan ehelada iyo qoysaskii ay ka baxeen dadkii ku geeriyooday dagaalka Guraceel, dhaawacyadana waxaan u rajeynayaa bogsasho degdeg ah,” ayuu yiri Xasan Sheekh Maxamuud. “Dagaalku ma xalliyo khilaafaadka siyaasadda ee waxa uu abuura kala fogaansho hor leh. Kala aragti duwanaanshaha siyaasadda waa in lagu xalliyaa miiska wadahadalka, iyadoo la dhowrayo jiritaanka, sharciyadda iyo midnimada dowlad goboleedka Galamudug.” Xog ay Caasimada Online baahisay 8-dii bishaan ayaa waxay daboolka ka qaaday in Midowga Murashaxiinta ay ku kala qeybsameen xiisadda ka taagan Galmudug, midaasi oo hor istaagtay in la soo saaro war-saxaafadeed lagu mideysan yahay. Ilo-wareedyo ka tirsan Midowga Murashaxiinta ayaa Caasimada Online u sheegay inay kala noqdeen dhinacyo taageersan Ahlu-Sunna, dhinacyo taageersan maamulka Qoor Qoor iyo kuwa dhex-dhexaad ah oo aan meelna jirin. Ma cadda sida uu khilaafkan ku dhammaan doono, waxayse u badan tahay inaanu marnaba golaha soo saari doonin war-saxaafadeed wadajir ah oo la xiriira xiisadda dagaal ee Ahlu-Sunna iyo Galmudug.
