The study was carried out to assess soil erosion hazard in outsketch of Kano metropolis, which is located between Latitude 11o59' and 12 o 02' N, Longitude 8o33' and 8o40'E. The Soil Loss Estimation Model for Southern Africa (SLEMSA), developed for conditions in Zimbabwe, was evaluated and used to determine a soil erosion hazard in outsketch of Kano metropolis; parameters were assessed with a view to model soil loss in outsketch of Kano Nigeria. The computed mean values of soil loss inform of erosion hazard unit (Ehu) for the study area is 188.02(Ehu). These value varied between 106.85542 (Ehu) in Tsamiyar Matasa – Gunduwawa to 313.74376 (Ehu) for the North Eastern Bypass. The estimated erosion hazard unit was higher in Northern Eastern Bypass, followed by Rimin Kebe with 143.45634 (Ehu) while Tsamiyar Matasa records the least soil loss between the sites. K value is responsible for high soil loss in Northern Eastern Bypass and low in Tsamiyar Matasa, while in Rimin Kebe the combination of all factors are the yardstick for high soil loss in essence no single factor seemed more important than the other factors in affecting the estimate soil loss values. The SLEMSA sub-models of cover, soil loss, and topography were computed from energy interception, rainfall energy, and soil erodibility, and slope length and steepness, respectively. Sensitivity analyses of the SLEMSA model revealed that rainfall energy and slope steepness have the greatest influence for the occurrence of erosion in the study area. The effect of the sensitivity indices of the five parameters in this research is rated as E>F>S>L>i in accordance with their relative importance for the occurrence of erosion. It is recommended that deep rooted trees that could help considerably in the binding of soil colloids against detachment should be planted. However, SLEMSA does not estimate rill or gully erosion. Therefore another method should be used to capture the gully erosion hazards for this area.
