The Movie the Lion King was actually about Our Great King Sundiata Keita the actual Lion King Sundiata Keita was the founder of the Mali Empire and celebrated as a hero of the Mandinka people in the semi-historical Epic of Sundiata, which is primarily known through oral tradition, transmitted by generations of Mandinka griots (djeli or jeliw). The famous Malian ruler Mansa Musa was his grandnephew. "By unifying the military force of 12 states, Sundiata becomes an emperor known as the Lion King of Mali, who controls tribes from the Niger River west to the Atlantic Ocean. Walt Disney Studios reprised the story of Sunditata in 1994 as an animated film, The Lion King, with animals substituting for the humans of Mali legend." -Ellen Snodgrass Encyclopedia of the Literature of Empire The actual chracters line by line

Security and National Development, By Musiliu Obanikoro Globally, the strategic nature of security is constantly evolving. From the sea-pirates operating in the horn of Africa to the terror strikes in the Middle East to the Boston bombings in the United States, the challenge of security is global and no nation in the world is insulated. Today in Nigeria, we are engaged in a counter- insurgency war against Boko Haram, an unprecedented challenge which requires a radical approach, a new way of thinking and a depth of understanding of the issues at stake beyond military operations or the efforts of the Federal Government alone. Without doubt, security is an enabler of national development. There can be no sustainable development without peace and security. Increasingly, security and development concerns have become interlinked. Today, governments across the world and international institutions are becoming more aware of the need to integrate security and development programmes in their policy interventions. U ...

TOPIC: TRULY VANITY UPON VANITY We have heard this statement times without number but we never heed to it. Mention one of the richest men of old or past, that their wealth is still available or if available that has a reasonable value. As an historian, I took out time to look out for some like solomon,Job, Mansa Musa, all these people, none of their wealth is still available. Most generations before ours don't even remember them. There is one man, who was just the son of a carpenter, he wasn't wealthy but after so many years, people long for everything that has to do with him, the only man that can never and will never be forgotten, I am talking about Jesus Christ.

King Mansa Musa OF OLD Mali Empire - ONE OF THE RICHEST MEN WHO EVER LIVED Mansa Kankan Musa(1312-1337 AD) , ‘The Lion of Mali’ was the tenth mansa, better known as “king of kings” or “emperor”, of the Malian Empire of Mali West Africa. He became one of the most powerful and wealthiest leaders of his time. He made Mali’s name renowned in the imaginations of European and Islamic countries In the 14th century. The wealth he commanded, social customs and grandeur of his court, led to the kingdom of Mali being internationally revered (Cheney 2004) He is most noted for his pilgrimage to Mecca which put Mali on the map, Degraft-Johnson (1998) noted, ‘It was in 1324 … that the world awoke to the splendour and grandeur of Mali. There across the African desert, and making its way to Mecca, was a caravan of a size which had never before been seen, a caravan consisting of 60,000 men. They were Mansa Musa’s men, and Mansa Musa was with them. He was not going to war: he was merely going to worship ...

Mansa Musa of Mali – The richest man ever was a devout Muslim from Mali Mansa Musa caused a sensation when he and his large retinue spent three months in Cairo in 1324. The Emperor of the Mali had crossed the Sahara desert on a pilgrimage to Mecca. Muslim Mali was rich in culture, agriculture, trade, and above all gold. Such was Mansa Musa's generosity, that during his visit to Cairo his gifts triggered the collapse of the price of gold and the Egyptian economy took ten years to recover. The river Niger and the Muslim trading world helped to connect Mansa Musa with European culture. He was pictured at the heart of Africa in a Spanish map, the Catalan Atlas, in 1375.

HISTORY ON THE AFRICAN PORTAL Songhai Empire The Songhai Empire started out as a fishing and trading center on the Niger River in a place called Gao where West African and Muslim traders visited often. Just like Ghana and Mali, the Songhai people were influenced by Islam, and many people even converted. For many years, Songhai people were ruled for many years by Mali, and were forced to pay taxes. In addition, Songhai people were forced to kneel before Mali kings as a sign of submission. In 1325, on the way back from Mecca, Mansa Musa took two of Songhai’s king’s sons as hostages. One of the sons, Prince Ali Kolon, accepted his education but always was very angry towards Mali. After 30 year, Ali Kolon escaped to Songhai and established the Sunni Dynasty. After 17 Sunni Dynasty kings ruled Songhai, Sunni Ali rose to power. He was not a devout Muslim. Sunni Ali had a daring plan to conquer Mali which involved using his navy to control the Niger River and using his army to conquer the trading cities of J ...

As we close out Black History month I'd like to give props to some of my favorites from history, some that we hear very little about but had major impact on the world. So here we go and may peace be upon them all: king Jaja of Opobo (full name: Jubo Jubogha; 1821–1891) was a merchant prince and the founder of Opobo city-state in an area that is now part of Nigeria. Born in Umuduruoha, Amaigbo,  in Igboland, he was sold at about the age of twelve as a slave in Bonny. Jubo Jubogha later took the name "Jaja" for his dealings with the British. Jaja proved his aptitude for business at an early age, earning his way out of slavery; he was enculturated according to Ijaw (Ibani) rituals and eventually established himself as head of the Anna Pepple House. Under Jaja's leadership, Anna Pepple soon absorbed a number of Bonny's other trade houses until an ongoing dispute with the Manilla Pepple House led by Oko Jumbo forced Jaja to break away as Opobo city-state in 1869. Opobo soon came to dominate ...

Politics & Polity Jonathan, Sanusi saga Anny MICHAELS When the news broke that CBN Governor Sanusi Lamido Sanusi as it where has been suspended by President Jonathan it sent no shiver through my spine as I expected it. It was clearly not the expectation of Sanusi, as by his calculation he planned to leave that powerful and plum job on his own terms typical of royals who decide when they should come and when they should go, in fact how long they should stay. What surprised some Nigerians was the way he served a notice that he will not seek an extension of the statutory term of five years. Sanusi paraded himself as one who would not be touched by anyone, not even the President. Feelers from politics indicate that, no matter how forthright you are, there are things you don’t tell the public as a public officer perhaps because of the sensitivity of the office but that wasn’t the case with the man- Sanusi. A flash back could tell you that he unilaterally wanted to foist N5,000 currency on Nigerians despit ...

Journey to Timbuktu (2009) Part Ten After returning to the Imam’s house, we were seated in the room we had previously occupied. However, now the room was illuminated with the light beaming from the faces of religious scholars, both young and old. The senior scholars were all adorned with the blue gowns that are the hallmark of scholars throughout West Africa and the Western Sahara region. They also were handsomely adorned with stately turbans, all meticulously wrapped in a common fashion. The younger scholars were all wearing Arab style thawbs of various colors. None were dressed in the traditional blue, nor were they wearing turbans. As we began our session of discussion and questions and answers, it was clear that the older scholars, as demonstrated by the Imam of Timbuktu earlier, were more comfortable speaking French than Arabic, with the exception of two or three who did not know French. As for the younger scholars, all of them had studied in Arab countries, —Egypt, Morocco, Libya, Tunis, or Sa . ...

Bout to change my name to Mansa Musa
The history of Mansa Musa, and his brother Abubakari, rulers of the empire Mali, and the Phoenicians: There are many scholarly sources that tell of Mansa Musa's golden caravan crossing the Sahara. The wealth and splendor he displayed on this journey were the talk of the Middle East and Europe for many years. One medieval map called him the king of all of Africa. Another European map from the fourteenth century, found in the Atlas Catalan, described Mansa Musa's Mali this way: "So abundant is the gold which is found in his country that he is the richest and most noble king in all the land. " During Mansa Musa's reign, the Malian Empire was larger than Egypt and its wealth far greater. The story that Abubakari commissioned a fleet of ships to sail across the Atlantic Ocean in the fourteenth century has also been documented by a number of historians. And some of then point to traditional African roundhouses, huge stone carvings of heads with African facial features, and black skinned people in Mexico and Br ...
Who is mansa musa? Musa I ( 1280 – 1337), was the tenth Mansa, which translates as "King of Kings" or "Emperor", of the wealthy Mali Empire. Musa was a devout Muslim and his pilgrimage toMecca, a command ordained by Allah according to core teachings of Islam, made him well-known across northern Africa and the Middle East. Musa made his pilgrimage in 1324, his procession reported to include 60,000 men, 12,000 slaves who each carried 4-lb. gold bars, heralds dressed in silks who bore gold staffs, organized horses and handled bags. Musa provided all necessities for the procession, feeding the entire company of men and animals. Also in the train were 80 camels, which varying reports claim carried between 50 and 300 pounds of gold dust each
But none have ever reached the stature of King Mansa Musa who was the richest black man who ever lived.

Feb 25th, Moment In Black History: ABUBAKARI II Abubakari II was a prince of the Mali Empire, the predecessor of Mansa Musa. Abubakari II appears to have abdicated his throne in order to explore "the limits of the ocean"; however, his expedition never returned. Malian scholar Gaoussou Diawara has argued that he reached the Americas some time in the early 14th century, but these claims have not been widely accepted. A grandson of a daughter of the great ruler Sundiata (reigned 1230-1255), the founder of the Keita dynasty, Mansa (emperor) Abubakari became ruler of Mali in 1300. His younger half brother was Kankan Musa, who later became the famous Mansa Musa. As ruler of one of the largest empires in the world at that time, Abubakari sought to increase the power and influence of Mali even further. While his brother was interested in extending the borders of the empire to the east, toward Cairo, Abubakari apparently focused on westward expansion by exploring the waters to the west of his kingdom. Unlike most ...

Black History FACT...Malian sailors got to America in 1311 AD, 181 years before Columbus. An Egyptian scholar, Ibn Fadl Al-Umari, published on this sometime around 1342. In the tenth chapter of his book, there is an account of two large maritime voyages ordered by the predecessor of Mansa Musa, a king who inherited the Malian throne in 1312. This mariner king is not named by Al-Umari, but modern writers identify him as Mansa Abubakari II.
He strengthened Islam and promoted education, trade, and commerce in Mali. Laying the foundations for Walata, Jenne, and Timbuktu to become the cultural and commercial centers of North Africa (Walker 2005). Infact Timbuktu became one of the major cultural centers of not only Africa but of the entire Islamic world producing Arabic-language black literature in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. Mansa Musa ruled for 25 years, bringing prosperity and stability to Mali and expanding the empire he inherited. Mali achieved the apex of its territorial expansion under Mansa Musa. The Mali Empire extended from the Atlantic coast in the west to Songhai far down the Niger bend to the east: from the salt mines of Taghaza in the north to the legendary gold mines of Wangara in the south. In conclusion He brought stability and good government to Mali, spreading its fame abroad and making it truly “remarkable both for its extent and for its wealth and a striking example of the capacity of black Africans for politica ...

Black History : Mansa Musa FROM MALI, AFRICA DISCOVERED AMERICA IN 1324 MORE THAN 100 YEARS BEFORE Christopher Columbus. THEY ALSO ENVADED SPAIN WHICH IS A REASON FOR THEIR DARK SKIN COLOR. Once he got to the Americas, Columbus records numerous examples of Muslims already present. He commented on the gold that the natives had, which was made the same way, in the same alloy, as the Muslims of West Africa did. Furthermore, Columbus records that the native word in that area for gold is guanin, which is very similar to the Mandinka word for gold, ghanin, which probably comes from the Arabic word for wealth, ghina’. In 1498, Columbus recorded seeing a ship loaded with goods, heading towards America, filled with Africans who were probably on their way to trade with Native Americans. Columbus also records in his journal that Native Americans told him of black Africans who came regularly to trade with them. Even Columbus knew that he was not the first to cross the Atlantic Ocean.

This is my reply to the so-called 8th Pan-African Congress in South Africa: Bismillah-Ar-Rahman Nir-Raheem, [ In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful] As-Salaam-Alaikum, [Peace upon You] I greet you in the way of my ancestors from the ancient and most powerful dynasty that Africa has ever seen, the Songhai Dynasty. I come to you in peace, although that is not what you have shown us as, Africans from the north, and to the majority of Africans who are suffering from foreign intervention and occupation. The way that you have conducted the PAC South African Conference was not only a disappointment for Africa but a foolish sham, and a utter disgrace to those of us who truly love mother Africa. You accomplished nothing more than a beginning of your own end as representatives of our mother, who has given us so much, and only asked that we find someway to get along, so that we may save her from the exploitation and the destruction of the Americans, Europeans, and Chinese. At this very moment mother Afric ...

Yes Ethiopia is known as Christian nation but in reality Muslim population in Ethiopia are almost 70% of the about 80million so it means Muslims in Ethiopia are 56 million (56 000 000)!! Ortodox-Christian government and USA, Russia and Europeans report always that Ethiopian Muslims are minority about 28million but these figures are political and western crusaders propaganda just like the Spanish&Portuguese Catholic crusaders claim to be first to have discovered Americas 1492!!! Chinese Ming Dynasty was first to Discover Americas 1421!! 70 years before the Spanish and Portuguese Catholic-Crusaders and before Christopher Colombus was even born! ! West African Kingdom and its leader his Royal Excellence King Mansa Musa and his men was second after the Chinese to Discover the Americas and before the European Crusaders where able to travel by sea because the European Criminal Empire is the world's latest and Most Horrific and worst Leadership humanity ever seen in documented human history! !

DID YOU KNOW THAT: Mansa Musa was one of the great kings of Mali. He ruled during the golden age and was noted for not fighting religious wars. Also allowing religious freedom in his country, applying Muslim law with a reserved hand, and often performing mandinka rituals. He is also known for his extravagant Hajj that is said to have depressed the price of gold. NOW YOU KNOW

Rsj Braimah What is Black History? The history lessons that I have been taught in the American school system is “black American” history dating from the advent of slavery in America to the present. Thanks to my exposure and academic prowess I was able to learn about people such as mansa musa whose name means “kings of kings”, Queen Amina of Zaria, Sokoto caliphate, Mali Empire, Songhai Empire, Kanem-Bornu Empire, and Oyo Empire.Is all there is to Black History, slavery and civil rights? Or is this black American history? Because Black History encompass over a billion people and multiple countries. I believe that, allowing the media and society to segment Black History to a particular group of black people is what has created the “relevance/irrevalence” of Black History “month”.

The richest human of all history is actually African (Mansa Musa). Success & abundance is in our DNA,we just need to become aware of it.
History of Ghana Medieval Ghana (4th - 13th Century) : The Republic of Ghana is named after the medieval Ghana Empire of West Africa. The actual name of the Empire was Wagadugu. Ghana was the title of the kings who ruled the kingdom. It was controlled by Sundiata in 1240 AD, and absorbed into the larger Mali Empire. (Mali Empire reached its peak of success under Mansa Musa around 1307.) Geographically, the old Ghana is 500 miles north of the present Ghana, and occupied the area between Rivers Senegal and Niger. Some inhabitants of present Ghana had ancestors linked with the medieval Ghana. This can be traced down to the Mande and Voltaic peoeple of Northern Ghana--Mamprussi, Dagomba and the Gonja. Anecdotal evidence connected the Akans to this great Empire. The evidence lies in names like Danso shared by the Akans of present Ghana and Mandikas of Senegal/Gambia who have strong links with the Empire. There is also the matrilineal connection. ...MORE

My heart is saddened for my people! My co worker asked one of our kids "Do you know who Harriet Tubman is" the kid replies "I don't know, some guy." This same student, if asked could tell you Beyoncé's birthday, age, height, hair color, favorite food etc. But can't tell you the simplest characteristic about one of the most popularized figures in African American history! I'm most saddened because her parents, like most are failing in educating our kids at home on their history! Parents of color let's step up and stop watching reality shows with our kids and start educating them on people who matter in our history and and contributed to us being free from slavery! And even before then, let's educate our kids on when we were kings and emperors such as Mansa Musa, Sundiata Keita etc... Let's stop failing our kids! Let's be the generation that changes this problem, instead of contributing...
Andrew Marr tells the story of Mansa Musa's pilgrimage to Cairo.
A Black History Moment Africa produced a plethora of advanced civilizations. The most notable of these is the Nile Valley civilization From 3,000 BCE (founding of the First Dynasty), all the way until it was conquered by Persia around 525 BCE. So about 2,500 years. This was followed by the great civilizations of Axum and D'mt, and later by the great Islamic civilizations of the Sahel (Mali, Songhai, and the last in the later Sokoto). The famous Hajj of Mansa Musa in the 13th century was so profound it altered the currency of every country he passed through with his entourage. Later the Sokoto Caliphate is an Islamic spiritual community in Northern Nigeria, led by the Sultan of Sokoto . It was founded during the Fulani War in 1809 by Usman dan Fodio. Throughout the 1800s, it was one of the largest and most powerful empires in sub-Saharan Africa until British conquest in 1903. Despite the new wave of myths regarding Nubia and Kemet (Ancient Egypt) It is clear that Kemet and Nubia were neighboring African Ci ...
There was a man, Mansa Musa, the wealthiest person in history, who spent so much gold personally in Egypt that he devalued gold and destroyed the country's economy.
Let us remember again mansa musa, Muhammad.
So called Black History month is insanely over rated lol geesh most o us don't even bother to learn our heritage n the majority of us know more about the exploitations of Christopher Columbus than Mansa Musa.
West Africa There is another part of the Muslim world that had contact with the Americas before Columbus. In West Africa in the 1300s, a powerful and incredibly wealthy empire called Mali existed. The most famous leader of this empire was Mansa (king) Musa. The most memorable event of his reign was his epic hajj journey in 1324. The caravan of over 60,000 people made an impression everywhere they went, including Egypt, where Mansa Musa told the story of how he came to power. His brother, Abu Bakr was the Mansa before he was. During his reign, Abu Bakr sent a fleet of 400 ships to explore the Atlantic Ocean. Only 1 ship returned, but reported that they found a land across the ocean. Mansa Abu Bakr then outfitted a fleet of 2000 ships, which he sailed with personally, that sailed west into the ocean. They were never heard from again. While there is no record in Mali of the result of that voyage, there is evidence of their arrival in the Americas. There are numerous archaeological sites in North and South Am ...
Cameron Fields, Mansa Musa know if the Broncos beat the best mf team in the land the New England Patriots what the *** happened tonight
Gold Trade and the Mali Empire By 1050 A.D., Ghana was strong enough to assume control of the Islamic Berber town of Audaghost. By the end of the twelfth century, however, Ghana had lost its domination of the western Sudan gold trade. Trans-Saharan routes began to bypass Audaghost, expanding instead toward the newly opened Bure goldfield. Soso, the southern chiefdom of the Soninke, gained control of Ghana as well as the Malinke, the latter eventually liberated by Sundiata Keita, who founded the Mali Empire. Mali rulers did not encourage gold producers to convert to Islam, since prospecting and production of the metal traditionally depended on a number of beliefs and magical practices that were alien to Islam. In the fourteenth century, cowrie shells were introduced from the eastern coast as local currency, but gold and salt remained the principal mediums of long-distance trade. The flow of sub-Saharan gold to the northeast probably occurred in a steady but small stream. Mansa Musa's arrival in Cairo car ...
Im thinking the first lady of Syria deserves a big clap for her role as wife to the Syrian president. The most dangerous job of the millenium. Im glad im single alhamdulillah.

KING SONNI ALI BER: THE WORLD`S FAMOUS FOUNDER OF PRE-COLONIAL SONGHAY EMPIRE OF West Africa AND THE LAST KING TO STAND FOR West African UNITY And AGAINST ISLAMIC INVASION. Once again like Tenkhamenin of Ghana and Mansa Musa of Mali, a king of great courage and military prowess arose in the large, semi-arid Sahel of West Africa and defeated the reigning empire. Songhai empire depended mainly on trade in salt and gold. Under the leadership of Songhai conqueror, considerable improvement has been made since the reign of Mali Kings. Now a system of weights and measures set a uniform value on gold and salt.This development eased tensions between merchants, making trade agreements smoother. The imaginative and powerful King of courage, Sunni Ali Ber (The Great) conquered Mali and brought about this significant improvements. Sonni Ali, also known as Sunni Ali Ber or "Sunni Ali", was born Ali Kolon. He reigned from about 1464 to 1492. Sunni Ali was the first king of the Songhai Empire, located in West Africa and ...

WHY ARE SO MANY SO-CALLED "CONSCIOUS" FOLK SO IGNORANT WHEN IT COMES TO AFRICA'S RELIGIOUS HISTORY? Why do so many so-called "conscious" people claim enslaved Africans in the Americas learned about the Abrahamic faiths from the whites in America, truely that is the stupidest thing I repeated hear and read from these types. This of course proves the so-called "conscious" people are sound asleep and know nothing about African history. It is a well known fact that West Africans already knew of Abraham Jesus Mohammad and all the profits many hundreds of years before the trans-Atlantic slave trade ever existed. Case in point Mansa Musa, the ruler of the Mali Empire ruled a West African Islamic Empire more the 200 years before the start of the slave trade that brought West Africans to America's shores. Also the state next to Mali was Songhai, a well known Empire in West Africa with a sizable Christian population. And of course there was also Ethiopia and Kemt which were both the foundation for Orthodox Christi ...
The value of knowing your self through knowing your heritage and society play such an important role the maturing of humanity. Being African American I thought I would define what the African American identity is to me, in as few words as possible. First I have to start with context. Any people is a function of their shared values, positive achievements, challenges and heritage/cultural evolution. For example the Hebrews are defined by the law, the temple and their journey through the ages as well as language and rituals. I would start by the belief that our ancestry goes back to Noah, through Pharoah, Makeda, Mansa Musa, Askia the Great, Nzinga, Kunta Kinte, Soujerner Truth, Harriet Tubman (For whom I think our people should be named), Garvey, DuBois, Ida B Wells, Elijah, Malcolm, King Jr. , Oprah & Barack. A heritage that has great empires and societies spread from India to the Americas until the establishment of the United States of America in 1776; when African American (USA) first came about.

Do we rope in Uthman dan Fodio, Mansa Musa, Chaka, Yaa Asantewaa, Moshoeshoe, Cetswayo, Jaja of Opobo, Nana of Olomu, Asamani, et al? How MUCH of our history do we know? And the BRITISH Broadcasting Corporation wants to tell us who is the greatest African? When did they pronounce who was the greatest British or European, and would they dare? And we are happy to trumpet this? Africa is BIG, with a rich history. Nkrumah's achievements were/are phenomenal. And there are a great many African who have done phenomenal things. We should not allow the BRITISH to crown anything "African" for us, any more than they would allow GBC to determine who is/was the greatest British. Is the greatest African that 'little' man or woman, who wakes up in the morning, goes to work to put food on the table, clothes on the back of his/her children, a roof over their heads and money in their pockets? My Point? Africa is way too BIG to have ONE greatest. THAT is an insult!! Kojo Anan Ankomah
