Five Kannywood films to watch during sallah

As the Eid-el Kabir festivities begin, PREMIUM TIMES recommends five Kannywood movies to enjoy during the holiday.

1. Hassana da Husaina – featuring Saratu Gidado, Patience Ozokwor, Rabilu Musa and Suleiman Bosho

The movie features Patience as Hussaina in her first Kannywood role. Saratu Gidado played her twin sister, Hassana. Sulieman Bosho and Rabilu Musa were their husbands, Bosho and Ibro.

The movie is about an army general who arranges for his troublesome twin sons to get married to another set of female twins. It is a great comedy that one would enjoy over a bowl of sallah meat.

2. Zeenat – starring Aisha Tsamiya, Hadiza Mohammed, Adam Zango, Tanimu Akawo.Zeenat

Zeenat is about a jealous uncle who makes his niece’s life miserable after the death of her father. He forces her to marry a security guard who turns out to be a prince.

This movie seems best to be watched at night after all the family visits on the day of Eid.

3. Uwar Mugu – starring Halima Atete, Adam Zango, Rabiu Rikadawa, Aisha Yar Kano

Uwar Mugu is about a bad mother – Aisha yar Kano, and her evil son, Adam Zango. She supports and encourages him to be a menace to society.

Uwar Mugu is action-filled from start to finish; a day after Sallah will be great time to watch it.

4. Gudun Wuce Sa’a – starring Rahama Sadau, Mohammed Bello, Fadila Mohammed

Gudun Wuce Sa’a is a movie about revenge.

Rahama Sadau as Menar sets out to avenge the death of her father, who was killed by his friend that stole all his wealth.

Watch this movie with your friends. They will most likely like it.

5. Ina kika je – Yakubu Mohammed, Hadiza Gabon, Aisha Tsamiya

The movie is filled with suspense and surprises.

Yakubu Mohammed, ‘Hamza’ was married to Hadiza Gabon, ‘Zainab’ and they are living happily together.

Not quite long into their marriage, problems started, engineered by Zainab’s best friend Rashida Mohammed, ‘Talatu.’

I recommend you watch the film at night, immediately after dinner.

    Hassana da Usaina is a must watch

  • Niyi Akinlabu

    This is a partial and rather obnoxious attempt at explaining Saraki’s convoluted, corrupt viewpoint.
    The charge in question is not of Saraki’s failure to declared his asset as stipulated. The charge was of false and ‘anticipatory’ declaration. By this (and for the education of Okukayode Thomas), the prosecutors at CCT are asserting that there are elements of the assets that Saraki declared, which he really had not ‘possessed’ at the time he declared them as his.
    I understand that having won some CNN awards, elitism might have crept in on Kayode. How else does one explain his total lack of feelings about the adverse effects of Saraki’s stock-in-trade (stealing)?
    Kayode was so busy ‘twisting his tongue’ on Buhari’s ‘lack of political skills’ that no mention was made about the ills of corruption.

    • Sunshine

      When Buhari was campaigning with Saraki against GEJ, he did not know that Saraki was corrupt? Why now? Are you aware that Saraki was North-Central Coordinator of Buhari campaign? Upon all the petitions sent to EFCC against Ameachi, Fashola, Kwakwanso, etc, what is still stopping EFCC from charging them to court if Buhari is truly fighting corruption not political vendetta? We are not against fighting against corruption but witch-hurting because of Saraki’s insistence in contesting Senate Presidency against Tinubu and Co. The same so-called anti-corruption Buhari allowed Audu Abubakar of Kogi to emerge as APC candidate in Kogi with all the corruption allegations hanging over him at EFCC. What is stopping EFCC under Buhari from inviting Audu Abubakar? Is it not chronic hypocrisy and vendetta?

  • Niyi Akinlabu

    We are at a crossroad in Nigeria. There is no sitting on the fence. We shall cease to exist if nothing is done to stop corruption. Writing articles making excuses for thieves does nothing to build this nation.

  • Mosaku 147

    I stopped reading this piece at the last sentence in the ninth paragraph. “And I doubt if he will do otherwise”. This confirmed to me that the writer knows not what he is writing about. One of brown envelop social commentators.

  • Raymond Abikale

    I care less if u are a three time African Journalist of the year by AL Jazeera. U shot yourself in the foot by being prejudiced. I was expecting a fair display of common sense where both parties are analyzed in its correctness,but here, u’ve exonerated Saraki and one would wonder which office of Saraki u occupy. Anyway, that’s your parochial opinion, I hold mine too.

    • Niyi Akinlabu

      Ray, I read this and I can’t stop asking myself how we came to get it so wrong as a people. I mean, what went ‘off’ with us?
      A Greek philosopher once said something to the effect of… “In a true society, citizens should resent each others injury”. We seem to have lost all sense of outrage at evil. How can the evil of corruption still have supporters among its worst sufferers in this country?

  • Gnwatch

    You can be a four times African or European journalist of the year, the fact remain you are an antagonist of BAT and poster boy of Saraki. Thus your like cannot be objective in a matter involving your pay master Saraki. So give us a break and ask your Tin God to go and clear his name. This anti corruption war enjoys the support of the masses of this country.

    • Sunshine

      Support of the masses my foot! Only gullible and irrational Nigerians like you see this witch-hurting as fight against Corruption.

      • ’70

        If Saraki isn’t guilty he will be set free, witch hunting or not…

      Buhari cant know because as at that time the EFCC,ICPC,CCB, or any government agency DO NOT report to him, instead they report to the world acclaimed ‘Do nothing President’ JONA!

  • En

    This journalist prefers politics over integrity. He’s a shameless brown envelop journalist!

  • dudu

    Oga enyin len so bayi?…eda pada ema sobe mo. I ‘m highly disappointed. Please stick to sports please.

    There is now a ruling of the CCT that in absence of the Attorney General of tge Federation, the Solicitor General can authorise prosecution of CCB-recommended culprits.The list of ministerial nominees has ot been released.When that is done, we shall know if indeed any fir er givernor from the South West or South South was e cluded for corruption.If Saraki was not served a notice detailing tge discrepancy of his asset declaration as this writer claimed, which according to him is offensive to the law, the Xenate President should use it in his defence bere the CCT.If the Federall High Court can does not have the same jurisdiction as the CCT , and can review its decision as ‘superior’ over an ‘inferior’ court , what is Saraki doing in the Court of Appeal? He should have again appealked the cecision of the CCT at the Federal High Court where his matter is already pending.This writer did not for once discuss the charges against Saraki.Dather he spoke of 12 years delay as if there is a status bar on criminal offences.Finally this writer did not speak up againdt the arraignment of Chimaroke Nnamani and Ikedi Ohakim in June this year.Nnamani became governor before Saraki. Ohakim is a contemporary of Saraki.This writer simply has an interest in Saraki and should be read as such.

    • Niyi Akinlabu

      I really wish I could upvote you 100 times.
      Thank you, and let’s keep speaking up, for in not doing this, lies the triumph evil seeks.

    • Bayo Ola

      I was about joining issues with this writer until I read yours. You captured my mind. Writers like Olukayode Thomas would force a critical observer to alllege that Saraki has some journalists on his payroll. A self-proclaimed CNN African journalist of the year ought to have penned a more robust defence of Saraki (if there are any) than this feeble attempt to rationalise corruption. Nigerians are so morally bankrupt people that one is confused where to start the moral rebirth and reconditioning process: from the bench to the bar, from the custodian of traditional institution (the Obas/Emirs etc) to the pulpit (the Pastors), from the journalists (Fourth Estate) to the other “estate” the Legislators, all reek of corruption. They have all accepted corruption as the uniform standard and still wonder why nothing works in Nigeria. Mr. Thomas should ask himself these questions: is politicking more important than the soul of Nigeria which seems to be currently at stake in the fight against corruption? Did Bukola Saraki declare his assets or sex them up when he made previous declaration? Did Bukola wreck the Society General Bank? What is Bukola afraid of by seeking court injuctions against a trial that has not started? If Bukola is innocent as he claimed, why not have a date in court to clear his name? Jonathan charged Tinubu to this court and Tinubu was exonerated. Is it not possible that Sakari might be exonerated by the court if he has nothing to hide? All other “politicking factors” are secondary to these questions. We need to set a new rule of engagement for our nation to grow. The president is a commander in chief and not the Senators. Although this is democrazy, President Buhari is different from President Jonathan. Let the Senators take a stand against the President and Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces that we voted for in his effort to implement the change we crave for, and watch how they would be consumed by the people revolution. It is in their interest to recoil and tow the line or face the wrath of the people and that of a President that knows the Power vested in the Office he occupies!

    I felt a sense of elation when i saw Kayode’s name weighing in on the issue of Saraki and asset declaration. Knowing the antecedents of Kayode, i had expected another voice to join the anti-sleaze wave currently blowing in the country.
    However, my happiness soon melted away after reading a few paragraphs and i discovered that Kayode has also joined with the cash-and-write journalism he fought against for so many years. Perhaps, a case of if you can’t beat them, join them.
    I recall that Kayode stood and fought against the sleazy tenure of Amos Adamu in Nigerian sports to the extent that he stood toe-to-toe in court until he made the former sports czar to eat a humble pie. Kayode, i suspect, helped in no small measure to humiliate Adamu out of FIFA -all in the name of fighting bungs.
    Kayode’s leopard has indeed changed spots. He came out outrightly in not only defending an accused SP, but in also condemning Buhari for sticking by his vow of non-interference. It is indeed a sad commentary that Kayode would ignore facts and reality to wave banner for Saraki. The facts are:
    *That crime is not time bound
    *David Mark did not overrule senators in the screening of Koro. What he did was to manipulate the rules in Koro’s favour. A case of being smart, but legal.
    *That it was Saraki’s kith and kin that started the senator’s travails.
    *That Saraki did not declare is the issue. What he did was anticipatory declaration with a view to cut the corners of the Code of Conduct rules.
    *That this same Saraki called the bluff of the president and told the APC to go to hell during the race for the Senate presidency. He even insulted the vice president, an eminent professor of law and a respected clergyman, calling him a ‘mere commissioner’.
    *That Saraki was able to bestride the political landscape all these while because Jonathan lacked the political and moral will to dilligently prosecute Saraki. A case of if you Tarka me, I will Daboh you.
    *That the war to cleanse Nigeria must start somewhere and it if commences from the Senate, oh glory, glory be to the Lord. For those who had stolen us blind in the past, this is a clear warning that they can only hide for some time and not forever. A Daniel has finally come to judgment.
    I pity Kayode for becoming a wily tool in the hands of Saraki’s spin doctors who succeeded in using his hard earned award to get stained in this political mud and making him to lose thousands, if not millions of admirers like myself.
    Let Kayode advise the Senate president to do the needful by stepping aside in the meantime while the trial lasts. That is what is done in civilised climes. Nigeria can no longer pretend we are not part of the world
