In early October 2016, Rahama Sadau was reportedly banned from the Hausa film industry (Kannywood) by the Motion Picture Practitioners Association of Nigeria (MOPPAN) due to her performance in a music video. MOPPAN argued that the “hugging and cuddling” in the video was offensive. Conservative Muslim clerics have accused the Kannywood film industry of corrupting people’s values.
