“The Songhai [or Songhay] Kingdom was established in ca. 1464 C.E. by Sonni Ali Ber [the former Ali Kolon]. Historians are still debating about the fact as to whether Kolon and Ber refer to the same man. This Empire was destroyed in ca. 1592 C.E. by Africans called Moors from the North. The invasion from Mauritania started in ca. 1582 C.E., at the end of Emperor Askia Ishak II’s reign. It lasted for ten [10] long bitter years of warfare.”
