Rallying from a supposed ban that was meant to truncate her career
and bring her into disrepute, Kaduna-based actress, Rahama Sadau, has surprisingly been catapulted from regional reckoning to national and even international attention.
In a recent interview with Nseobong Okon-Ekong of thisdays news paper, banned kannywood actress Rahama Sadau bare her mind on several issures.
“Yes women are restricted in Kannywood. That is all I have to say. I can’t explain it”.
After much coaxing, she opened up on why she might have been singled out for a ‘ban’. “I can say as much as I want to say but they might judge me. Trust me, they will. This restriction affects the kind of script, the roles you take and the way you act those roles. You definitely have lines that you can’t even think of crossing. I can’t act nude or wear bikinis. The highest I can do is leave my hair open. I can’t wear a tank top. There are so many rules. They don’t have to write these rules for you. You just know that those things are not allowed in the north. There are other restrictions about touching an actor of the opposite sex. Even if it is in the script, even if we are playing father and daughter, it’s not allowed.
I pray may be in future, they can allow all those stuff. The real issue is that our stories won’t even come with it. It won’t come with the touching…you know how the northern parts are, the way they dress and their personal life, so it won’t even be in the script. If I have to write scripts, I will see how to bring it about. These things are natural. Human beings are male and female. I am not encouraging anything immoral. I am talking about an acceptable relationship between a married couple. For instance, if the wife falls down and her husband has to pick her up. Let us say she was sick. Even the audience will expect body contact. The husband should help her up. There must be contact. That is the natural thing to do. You do not tell somebody who is critically ill to get up or sing to her. You lift her up. But that’s the north. It’s not something that is bad. It’s just the norms and traditions and nobody wants to go against that. It’s better we respect it.”
