Rahama Sadau, a Kannywood actress, says she can’t quit filmmaking for marriage. 


The 27-year-old Hausa movie star brought this revelation to light on Wednesday during an interactive session with her fans on Twitter.

During the 30-minute session which spanned several aspects of Rahama’s life, a fan had asked if she was ready to give up filmmaking for marriage.

But responding, Sadau wondered why women have continued to thrive in other fields but often criticised for considering filmmaking as a career.


“Why quit filmmaking for marriage? Is filmmaking not an occupation? Why is it okay to have women in different areas of organization but not in filmmaking ? Media for example,” she replied.

The actress also responded to ceaseless criticism of her actions by the public, noting that such backlashes are sometimes “unfair.”

Sadau, however, said she remained unperturbed over people’s opinions about her.

“Entirely!!!!! But I’m not bothered. it’s an open space where everybody thinks he’s opinion matters when it does not!!! #AskRahama,” she wrote.


The spotlight had beamed on the Kannywood star on numerous occasions for controversial reasons.


In November last year, her dress had elicited mixed reactions among several conservative Muslims, some of whom quickly condemned her as having committed “haram”, an act that is forbidden by Islamic law.

TheCableLifestyle had also reported how she was expelled from Kannywood for “hugging and cuddling” in a music video in October 2016.
