Kannywood actress, Rahama Sadau was recently banned because of a role she played in a music video that was taken to be an immoral actor.
Has this ban stopped her from being creative? Far from it because she is still asking that Hausa actresses should be given more roles.
Rahama said “In reality, I am a northern Hausa girl, and I have lines I would never cross, like mode of dressing or basic public ethics. I belong there and most of my fans are from the north. I don’t have to restrict my fans or make an enemy of some which shows in the way I conduct myself most times. One perception about acting in the northern part where I come from is that it seems abnormal as the culture dictates, but I took it professionally despite the challenge this perception holds. Yet I am like a role model to many who appreciates acting in the northern part of Nigeria. If I am not an actor, I would have been a model. There’s nothing wrong with it as long as I conduct myself in a manner”.
She said that she can marry an actor “Yes I can, why not? An actor would understand me better as long as the person knows the rules of the industry, but not an actor from the other side, who out of norms would want me to stop acting.”
