The final of the three mighty medieval West African empires – Songhai ! In today’s episode we discuss largely its origins, how it morphed from a simple city state to the largest West African empire and how at the helm of all this was one of Africa’s greatest conquerors – Sonni Ali Ber. We discuss his influence on the region and why he was a divisive figure, even today.
