Rahama Sadau, a Nigerian actress, has sparked controversy on social media platforms after she shared pictures of herself wearing a backless gown.


In the photos, which were posted on her social media pages on Sunday, the talented Kannywood star poses in a tight-fitted pink gown that exposed her skin from her neck down to the upper section of her waist.

“May you enjoy outstanding breakthroughs and joy this new month. Ameen #HappyNewMonth,” the 26-year-old wrote in one of the posts.

Sadau’s fashion choice, however, didn’t go down well with a number of her conservative Muslim colleagues, some of whom quickly condemned her as having committed “haram”, an act that is forbidden by Islamic law.


This has since provoked arguments on Twitter as some users also came to her defense.


“Rahama Sadau is probably the most immoral and indecent Arewa (Hausa) Twitter lady. That post was totally wrong and she’ll explain that to her creator,” a Twitter user wrote while reinforcing Islamic virtues.

“This isn’t the first time she did this & we’re sinners too, but it’s better to cover ur sin private than make it public. Allah ya shirya.”


A user also wrote: “Nobody at Rahama Sadau’s age can say he/she doesn’t know that indecent dressing in Islam is haram. So, why worrying yourself in correcting her? Just drink cold water and mind your business. We are in free world and death too is inevitable.”

So many backward-thinking hypocrites in this country. How they carry Rahama Sadau‘s new pictures as the only issue they know and allow it trend, but will never speak up against the injustice up North. Seriously, people need to learn. Everything shouldn’t be about religion,” another user wrote.

Below are the reactions from Nigerians:
