Kannywood: Ali Nuhu, Aisha Aliyu, others bag City People awards

The Kannywood category was introduced two awards season ago.


Ali Nuhu and Aisha Aliyu won the best actor and actress awards respectively in the Kannywood category of the 2014 City People magazine entertainment awards.

The awards took place in Lagos on Sunday.

The awards featured celebrities in both Kannywood and Nollywood.

Kannywood movie producer, Uzee concept, also won the award for the best film, with the movie, MAJA.

Other Kannywood celebrities that won awards include: Abba Yakasai – Best producer; Zaharadden Sani – Best supporting actor; Halima Ateteh – Best supporting actress; Ibrahim Daddy – Best new actor; and Rahma – best new actress.

The Kannywood category was introduced by the organisers of the City People awards two seasons ago; and since then several actors from the Hausa movie industry have bagged awards.

One of the awardees, Uzee concept, who won the best film award, told PREMIUM TIMES after the event in Lagos that their achievement is as a result of their hard work.

“We are working day and night to see that we produce and make good movies in Kannywood; and we are not relenting on that,” he said. “With the way we are going, soon you shall be seeing Kannywood movies being nominated in big international awards.”
