Kannywood top actresses, Rahama Sadau and Fati Washa, were some of the winners from the Hausa movie industry on Saturday at the 23 Africa Films Award 2019 in London.
Kannywood actress, Rahama Sadau, has debunked rumours that she’s going to jail following purported reports of her arrest.
Newsmen recall that the actress has been under pressure since her ‘provocative’ photo showing her wearing an open-back dress surfaced on social media and drew a backlash from conservative Islamic groups, which led to her suspension from Kannywood.
In a tweet, the actress wrote: “I have received many messages that I have been arrested and sentenced to jail earlier today. I have no idea where the news emanated from. I’m therefore calling on people to stop spreading FAKE and unfounded stories.
“I haven’t received any police invitation or court trial. I’m reiterating this to well-wishers that I’m SAFE and FINE and I have never received any legal trial for whatever reason. To those trying to bank on this issue to create an unrest, Please give it a rest..!!!
“It’s indeed a hard time for me. This is not the right time for FAKE NEWS. Much love to those who reached out, I’m grateful. Love Rahama.”
