The Motion pictures Practitioners Association of Nigeria (MOPPAN) has announced the expulsion of famous actress, Rahama Sadau from the Hausa movie industry, Kannywood for what the association termed as immoral appearances in a music video.
News of the expulsion was contained in a press statement issued and signed by MOPPAN secretary, Salisu Mohammed.
The statement said the decision to expel the actress was taken after an emergency meeting which held on Saturday, by all guilds that make up the association.
It read: “Sequel to the recent meeting in which a resolution reached by all guilds and associations under the unified body of MOPPAN, Rahama Sadau has been expelled from the Hausa indigenous film industry popularly known as Kannnywood. This is as a result of her recent immoral appearance in a certain video song where she appeared in series of visuals (video and pictorial) hugging and cuddling the music artiste, ClassiQ in his newly released video,” said the statement.
According to the statement the actress’ action has violated the association’s code of ethics known to all practitioners, adding that, the action taken by the association will serve as a deterrent to other members of the association.
Efforts to contact Rahama Sadau on the issue were unsuccessful as she is currently in India to receive an award.
