An actress by the name of Rahama Sadau is not having the best of times right now following a decision made by the Motion pictures Practitioners Association of Nigeria, MOPPAN, to expel her from Kannywood.
The decision was made after an emergency meeting on Sunday. Sadau’s ‘grave’ offense was appearing in a romantic music video with an artist called ClassiQ.
A communique released by MOPPAN 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 Kannywood.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.
Prior to this Incident, Rahama has been suspended for 6 months in May 2015 for accusing actor, Adam Zango of demanding to sleep with her in order to feature in his movie ‘Duniya Makaranta’.
Rahama is currently in India and is yet to respond to the expulsion.
