Welcome to random Wiki of the Day where we read the summary of a random Wikipedia page every day.

The random article for Saturday, 22 October 2022 is The Songhai.

The Songhai (also Songhay, Songhaytarey ([soŋaj]), ([soŋaj-tah-ʀai̯])) is an area in the northwestern corner of Niger's Tillabéri Region populated mainly by the Songhai proper. It is considered the heartland of the Songhai people and the sanctuary of their ancient pantheon and priestly class and the place in which the original lineage of the Sonni Dynasty retreated after the coup d'etat of 1493 creating a secret society of magicians, the Soyankés or Sohance.

This recording reflects the Wikipedia text as of 00:06 UTC on Saturday, 22 October 2022.

For the full current version of the article, see The Songhai on Wikipedia.
