Rahama Sadau gets Hollywood invite after Kannywood ban

Top Kannywood actress, Rahama Sadau, who was recently  expelled from the industry for featuring in a romantic musical video, has been invited  by international superstar, Akon, and US-based Nigerian film-maker, Jeta Amata, to visit the set of their new film in Hollywood – Los Angeles.

The news was broken by Akon via his Twitter handle when he tweeted, “Looking forward to seeing you in Los Angeles. Let’s empower our women and motivate them to grow. Fanning them is cooler than banning them.”

Also corroborating Akon, Hollywood actor and comedian, Miguel Nunez, also tweeted saying, “We are going to have so much fun. One door closes another one opens. I can’t wait to see you. We are going to have a blast. You will become huge here.

An excited Rahama also confirmed accepting the invitation in a series of tweets. She wrote, “Wow, I’m so humbled. Los Angeles calling..so excited about @jeta_amata mata and@akon invitation to visit the set of their new film in Hollywood!!#Rahamasadau 💫💫💃💃💃 so excited.

Although details of the movie is yet to be disclosed, it seems the Kannywood star who made her acting debut three years ago, will play a major role.

Since her ban barely two weeks ago, the beautiful actress’ career appears to be on a steady rise. Earlier in the week, she forayed into Nollywood by starring in a 13-week drama series titled Sons of the Caliphate, which currently airs on Ebonylife TV.

The controversial ban caused widespread outrage on social media with her teeming fans advising her to excel even more in more successful movie industries in the world (Hollywood, Nollywood), etc.

Although the Motion Pictures Practitioners Association of Nigeria warned other actors and actresses to henceforth follow the rules binding their participation in the Kannywood film industry, Rahama appears unperturbed.

In a recent interview with PREMIUM TIMES, Rahama revealed that she had floated an all-female production outfit, Sadau Productions.

She also disclosed that the outfit will be dedicated to ensuring that young Hausa ladies interested in filmmaking and acting are given an opportunity to showcase their talents without inhibitions.
