Top Kannywood actress, Rahama Sadau has been banned from acting in the Hausa Nollywood industry after the beautiful actress featured in a romantic music video where she was ‘cuddling’ and ‘hugging’ the artiste, ClassiQ.
The Motion pictures Practitioners Association of Nigeria, MOPPAN, a coalition of associations that set rules and regulations governing the conduct of actors and actresses, as well as production of movies in northern Nigeria held an emergency meeting on Sunday where they expelled the star actress.
A communique issued by MOPPAN and signed by its secretary, Salisu Mohammed, read, “Sequel to the recent meeting in which a resolution reached by all guilds and associations under the unified body of Motion Pictures Practitioners Association of Nigeria (MOPPA). That Rahama Sadau has been expelled from the Hausa indigenous film industry popularly known as Kannnywood.
“This is as a result of her recent immoral appearance in a certain video song where she appeared in series of visuals (video and pictorial) hugging and cuddling the music artist ClassiQ in his newly released video.
“The leadership of the industry has taken this decision for her violation of its codes of ethics known to all it practitioners.
“By this resolution, the leadership of the industry will no longer tolerate behaviours that are against conduct and ethics laid by the constitution governing the unified leadership of the industry.
“More so, the leadership hopes that this will serve as a deterrent to the actors and actresses to check their public behaviour as they are expected to be good ambassadors to the society they represent.
“Furthermore, a committee has been set to receive and deal with reactions and feed backs to this resolution in respect to the affected actress especially those producers that currently engage her in their projects.”
Sadau is currently on vacation in India and is yet to react to her expulsion.
