Kaidan Gaskia:   Tun ga maa !

Kaidan Gaskia is Haousa and means 'To act with the truth' in other words: to respect the rules of truth. The name is sometimes written as Kaigan Gaskia. The group consist of Phéno Bi, Miss Safia and Kastro, who was a former member of the group " territoire ennemi ". Phéno was born at Dosso (Niger) 23 December 1972, Safia was born at Khartoum (Soudan) 15 April 1982.

Although the name of the group is Haousa, their songs often are in Zarma, for example, Windi windi (to walk around), Ni ga di ni ga maa (you will see, you will hear), and Watifo (When). Tun ga maa (written on the video as toun ga ma) means 'get up and listen'. The last album is Dieu est grand.
