A famous Nigerian actress, Rahama Sadau, has been expelled by the Hausa indigenous film industry known as Kannywood, after she featured in a music video which they say was “immoral”.
The Kannywood star appeared in the video with popular singer, Classiq, in a song titled I Love You.
In the film you can see her being hugged by Classiq.
The statement from the Motion Pictures Practitioners Association of Nigeria (Moppan) says that Ms Sadau was “hugging and cuddling the music artist” in clear violation of code of the conduct “known to all practitioners”.
It goes on to say that the body would not tolerate behaviour that goes against the conduct and ethics governing the industry.
The statement also says that they hope the expulsion would serve as a “deterrent for other actors and actresses” and urged them to be ambassadors of the society they represent.
