Passage

Songhay/Songhai Empire

Also spelled Songhay, great trading state of West Africa (flourished 15th - 16th century) , centred on the middle reaches of the Niger River in what is now central Mali and eventually extending west to the Atlantic coast and east into Niger and Nigeria. Though the Songhai people are said to have established themselves in the city of GAO about 8oo Ce, they did not regard it as their capital until the beginning of the nth century during the reign of the dia (king) Kossoi, a Songhai convert to Islam. GAO so prospered and expanded during the next 300 years that from 1325 to 1375 the rulers of Mali added it to their empire. About 1335, the dia line of rulers gave way to the Sunni, or Shia, one of whom, Sulaiman-Mar, is said to have won back GAO՚s independence.
