Africa serves as a home to over 1.216 billion people, yet it’s difficult for these 53 countries to communicate with each other due to 1250–3000 numerous languages present per country. Business and organisation face this same challenge as they look to expand to Africa.


However, the Hausa language serves as a language for communication across West Africa which spans among other countries with over 170 million speakers.

I will try to give a satisfactory answer to the question. How widely spoken is the Hausa language? I am from the Royal family in Daura where Hausa originated and I have the title of Wamban Daura. Abashe Saidu, former Managing Director at Katsina State Agricultural And Rural Development Authority (1980-2015).

Hausa is the most widely spoken language in Northern Nigeria and there is a large number of Hausa speaking population in the Western Nigeria and Lagos areas. There are even ‘Sarkin Hausawa’ in Ibadan and Lagos.

Hausa is also widely spoken in Niger Republic , Chad and Cameroon. Northern Ghana has a large Hausa speaking population . Hausa speaking people extend west up some areas in Senegal.

I can recall a hilarious incident which happened to me when I attended a meeting in Dakar , Senegal in 1992. I went out in the evening for a stroll in the evening where I saw some people selling a roasted meet we call ‘tsire or suya’ in Hausa. I wanted to communicate to the people to buy the tsire but I can not speak the local language . I started talking to myself in Hausa on how do I communicate with these guys? So I resorted to sign language and to my surprise one of them asked me in perfect Hausa ‘ Alhaji tsiren nawa kakeso?’, meaning – How much tsire do you want to buy? We all laughed.

Hausa speaking extends up north to Libya and there are probably about over a million Hausa speaking people in Sudan. Saudi Arabia has a large Hausa population. Hausa people are adventurers and reach many parts of Africa for trading. They are found as far as Congo and Zaire.

I understand that Hausa is the first or second most widely spoken language in sub Saharan Africa .

I hope above piece throws more light on the extent Hausa is spoken in Africa and beyond.
