This manuscript titled Etankpincici, Memoirs is a collection of poems in Nupe Ajami. The set of poems seem to be authored by one scribe and at the of one of them, two different dates were recorded: The Islamic calendar dated 11/10/1393 A.H. and a Gregorian date 11/02/1984 A.D. Nevertheless, this does not suggest that all the poems in this collection Etankpincici -- Memoirs in Nupe Ajami were composed in the year 1984. In fact, it could be the date the manuscript owner accessed the manuscript. Memoirs in Nupe Ajami, like the other manuscripts in this collection, constitute part of what Sheikh Alhaji Abdurrahman Aboki examined in his Dissertation (1991). The poems eulogize the Prophet Muhammad, Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon him. All the poems begin by thanking the Almighty Allah and praising the Prophet before proceeding to describe the outstanding qualities of the Prophet. Each poem concludes with thanking Allah Al-Ḥamdu Lillāh for sending the Prophet to humanity.
