"Interesting how you guys in Republic du Niger spell "Aoure" in Nigeria it is spelled as "Aure" based on the latin alphabet. I guess it's because of Niger being Francophone. Gaisuwa, barka da zuwa"

I posted a comment to this video's viewer comment thread asking for more information about this song. I'm particularly interested in knowing what the title "Exodus" means in relation to the lyrics. I'd also like to know if the clothes and hairstyles shown in the video traditional for the Zarma ethnic group?

If I receive any responses to my questions I'll re-post them here.
