Everyone knows his Lander songs.
If we are to appreciate Hassan, we need to do so in a manner that recognizes him for who he is not what others made him to be.
We need to recognize the young Hassan from Bay who had Maay accent and Maay art. He did introduce us to his world and for that we need to appreciate him.
Somaliland songs already have enough coverage, venues and space to be appreciated. The people of Lander are not selfish. We only recognize a tree's roots. Hassan has his roots in Bay and the often overlooked Maay language.
So we should not think of Hassan for Hadraawi lyrics or Mr Bidde or Qays or Sahardiid or even Sangub but Maay writers/composers like Sahal Macalin Isse should be recognized. We should remember the likes of Abwaan Sahal.
We know who tried to erase him and repackage him and we say no. We will recognize Hassan for his Maay talents same way Magool was Khadija.
