Multiple award winning Kannywood/Nollywood actor Ali Nuhu has been the man behind recent apology by controversial Kannywood actress Rahama Sadau to Kano state Governor Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje and the Emir of Kano Muhammadu Sanusi II over the events that led to her expulsion from the Hausa movie industry last year.
It could be recalled that Motion Pictures Practitioners Association of Nigeria (MOPPAN) took the decision to expel the actress following her indecent appearance in a musical video along side Jos based musician ClassiQ.
Ali Nuhu who spoke in an interview while on transit out of the country stated that the actress decided to apologise after she realised her mistakes adding that it is human to err.
“As elders in the Industry, it is our responsibility to guide the younger ones that was why I was so instrumental in her apology.
“In life it is good for one to make amends and apologies when he or she goes wrong. Rahama had taken a bold step in tendering her apology as she promised never to repeat same again. She had also officially written an apology letter to MOPPAN which I believe officials of MOPPAN are currently deliberating upon” said Ali Nuhu.
The actress apologised in a radio Hausa programme, “Ku Karkade Kunnuwan Ku” on a popular FM station in Kano; in which she vowed that “such will never happen again.”
“I wish to explain myself over what happened in the past which angered many people and caused such a storm. So, I wish to apologise over what happened. My silence at that time was only due to the fact that I did not want to talk because everybody was so incensed, especially the leaders. As such, I am now apologising to all and sundry, including my colleagues; His Royal Highness the Emir of Kano, His Excellency the Governor of Kano state, and anyone affected; I am so sorry. God’s willing, such will never happen again. Similarly, I wish to appreciate the support of my fans and everyone else.”
On the question whether she has now resumed fully in Kannywood, she reportedly said, “God’s willing.”
