Banned Hausa Actress Rahama SadauExplains Her Side Of The Banning Brouhaha..

Rahama Sadau, the actress who was expelled from Kannywood for
“hugging and cuddling” in a music video, says it’s impossible to
avoid physical contact while acting.
The Motion Pictures Practitioners Association of Nigeria
(MOPPAN) had on Mondaybanned the actress from Kannywood
films for supposedly being too close for comfort with ClassiQ, a
Nigerian musician.
In a statement released on Tuesday, Sadau apologised for any
“anxiety” she may have caused by appearing in the video and also
appreciated those who have shown her support in her trying time.
“Following the events of the last few days and MOPPAN’s
unilateral decision to exclude me from the Hausa indigenous film
industry, known as Kannywood, I would like to use this medium to
address my fans, friends, those who have been affected and all
who have shown concern.
“To those who I have offended in any way, shape or form and who I
have caused any anxiety by featuring in the said music video, I
sincerely apologise.
“It was a job and I was carrying out my role in my profession, as I
would in any other production, be it a Hausa language film or a
Nollywood production.
However, innocuous touching with other people in my line of work
is inevitable.
“I have lines that I would never cross and indeed I live and stand
by the tenets, “actions are judged according to intentions.
“The outcome of the events that have taken place has come as a
surprise to us all. I may have fallen short of some people’s
expectations, but it was never my intention. I make no excuses for
my actions and I take full responsibility.
“Thank you to all those who have reached out at this time and to
everyone in general for your unwavering support. Your passion
and loyalty hasn’t gone unnoticed and I am privileged to have your
support. This, I do not take for granted and I want nothing more
than to continue making you all proud.
“I implore us all to be more tolerant and forgiving towards one
another and to cease all the senseless abuse, name-calling and
backbiting. This achieves nothing other than to cause a huge
divide amongst us.”

  1. They have only succeeded in making her more popular. I've seen the video in question...not as bad as it's being painted. Looking at it from a cultural/religious perspective though.....
