Ebrima Dem commented on a post on Blogger.
I recently spent 9 months in Niger ( Tahoua) area, where U met people who said they are Hausas of Fulani parents or grand parents, but can't speak a word of the fulfulde language, so chose be call Hausa, which is the language they know and speak fluently, even though they are facially, and physically different from the mainstream Hausa identity.. I don't know much about history of the Hausa, or how these two distinct are now merged,but I agree with the author that there is nothing  like Hausa-Fulani ethnic group.. How about Fulanis in Gambia, Senegal, Mali etc.. are we going to call them Wollof-fulani, or Mandinka-Fula?
