    Muhammad al-Taaishi was my initial guess but turns out it's not him. REALLY out on a limb but I just want to make some kind of a guess.....

    Osman Digna?

    All are wrong. Next tip: The guy is not from modern Sudan.

    Next hint: The figure is either from modern Niger, Chad or Nigeria.

    But that man and photograph looks to be from the late 19th century/ not exactly modern?

    How about Aliyu Babba, aka; Aliyu Ibn Abdullahi-Maje Karofi ​and Mai Sango: - Emir of Kano 1894 - 1903? (total guess).

    Jep, was not detailed enough: The guy on the pic is from the geographical area which today gets covered by these three states.

    How about Aliyu Babba, aka; Aliyu Ibn Abdullahi-Maje Karofi ​and Mai Sango: - Emir of Kano 1894 - 1903? (total guess).
    No, but my character is indeed an emir.
    I would say that you guys have three more guesses, then i will give the solution.

    Well, it's been a slightly interesting and informative search, but I realise now this is just a guessing game, so I'm out. Will be interested in the answer, hope he was worth it!

    I'm out too, I spent a good amount of time searching for various emirs haha but to no avail (other than a hell of a load of photos of the Emir of Qatar.....that FIFA-bribing swine!). Definitely one of the toughest though, good pic!
