Kannywood actress, Rahama, bags six-month suspension over sexual harassment claim

Rahma Sadau

The Motion Pictures Practitioners Association of Nigeria has suspended Kannywood actress, Rahama Sadau, for claiming she was denied a role in a movie for refusing sexual overtures of the director, Adam Zango.

The association said Ms. Sadau was suspended for violating its rules and regulation.

Ms. Sadau in a post on her Instagram page had accused Mr. Zango of firing her from his movie, Duniya Makaranta, after she rejected his romantic advances.

She, however, posted an apology the following day, calling her behaviour childish.

In a letter issued to Ms. Sadau on Tuesday, the association accused the actress of sabotaging producers by threatening to stop recording in the middle of a production.

Hassana Dalhat, a Kannywood movie promoter and marketer, applauded MOPPAN’s decision. She said suspending Ms. Sadau would serve as a lesson to others that the industry is governed by rules and principle.

PREMIUM TIMES tried to contact Ms. Sadau for her response, but the actress did not respond or return calls to her telephone.

However, a close friend of the actress said she had received the suspension letter and would comment on her next move soon.

In 2013, Nafisa Abdullahi was suspended for two years by the Arewa Film makers Association of Nigeria for organizing a party contrary to the laws governing the industry.

    I see no reason why they’ll suspended her for six months unnecessary, that’s not enough reason, unless if they’ve personal selfish interest among them while making the decision. They are not organised. How could you be s judge by siding a party A and againsting to the party B instantly? God will be at her side.

    Backward people. Instead of investigating the allegation and prosecute the man, they choose to suspend the the lady to scare other girls that would want to expose the sexual advances of these producers. worst of all, i read her fellow woman saying “her suspension serves as a lesson for others”. shame.

    They are really very backward. In a civilized world it would have been the chronic womanizer Adam Zango that should have been suspended. This is more so that everyone knows Zango with woman harassment habit. He has divorced more than three women and had issues with other lady Actors in the past. So the Nigerian film industry is producers industry where other mortals have no choice but to obey.
