Somali Women
Born in 1948 as Halima Khaliif Omar, Magool (flower in Somali language) was a prominent Somali singers and considered as one of the greatest entertainers of her time. She was the first ever Miss Somalia and sang in the Waaberi band in the 1960’s. After singing lovesongs for some years Magool turned to singing Islamic songs in the late 1970’s that criticized the then ruling military government. A self-imposed exile followed and when she finally returned to Mogadishu in 1987, she performed a concert “Mogadishu & Magool” that to date is the most succesful concert in Somali history, with more than 15,000 people reportedly turning out in the city’s stadium.
Magool died in 2004.
