Hausa and Fulani are two ethnic groups who are regarded as one ethnic nation because of their similarities.
Most of the Hausa and Fulani population is found in Northern Nigeria, in and around Sokoto, Kano, and Katsina.
Before the Fulani arrived, the Hausa had set up well-organised city-states, which are Katsina, Daura, Kano Zazzau (Zaria), Biram, Gobir, and Borno.
Some of these were overcome and set up again by the Fulani.
Then Katagum, Hadeija, and Gombe were then founded.
Fulani going into Hausa land went with Islam which became a big factor in social life and culture.
In education, dress, taste, and outlook the Hausa and Fulani became part of the Islamic culture world.
Hausa and Fulani do not look alike or have the same cultural practices, traditionally.
Fulani’s are mostly light-skinned, ungraceful, thin, tall, and have long hair.
Whipping a suitor in front of his bride is part of their marriage requirement, and they practice monogamy.
Fulani also travels a lot and that is why they are spread out into West Africa.
Hausas are good merchants and this helped them travel to other countries around Nigeria.
The men are known for their bravery while their women are known to be daring.
They on the other hand practice polygamy.
