– Popular Hausa actress Rahama Sadau’s ban from Kannywood is still generating controversy
– This time, another popular Hausa actor Ali Nuhu appears to have come out in support of the ban
– A lot of people have labeled the actor a hypocrite because of his comments
The ban of popular Hausa actress Rahama Sadau from appearing in films in Kannywood by the Motion Pictures Practitioners Association of Nigeria (MOPPAN) has continued to generate controversy. Most people are not in support of the ban but there are a few that feel since she is a part of the northern movie industry, she is subject to whatever decision MOPPAN makes.
Now it seems another Kannywood actor Ali Nuhu has spoken in support of Rahama’s ban. He called it ‘logical’. He told Daily Trust recently: “I think that the ban is logical. She belongs to Kannywood, started her career in Kannywood and has violated the ethics and code of conduct of Kannywood by holding hands and falling on the guy’s back.”
The producer and director further revealed that the ban was extreme for Rahama’s alleged offense and that MOPPAN should exercise caution when meting out punishments.
“I don’t think she should be banned. Maybe a suspension. There are situations where people create big things out of small ones. That is why before deciding to do something, one needs to think. I would advise that in future when things like this happen, they deliberate amongst themselves and maybe call in a few others in the industry before making it public. People do things in an organization and are suspended or given queries. But these organizations won’t go to the media to announce it. It was blown out of proportion,” Ali explained.
Responding to critics who feel he should also be banned based on the fact that he has also caressed women in some Kannywood films, he said: “About photographs of me in scenes with females, those are from Nollywood movies, many years old, and this code came into light recently, so people shouldn’t think MOPPAN is being selective.”
