Nollywood and Kannywood actress, Rahama Sadau has not only received criticism but also sanctions over a raunchy picture she posted on Twitter.
She has been blacklisted and suspended by the northern filmmakers under the aegis of Motion Picture Practitioners Association of Nigeria (MOPPAN).
The statement from the body says the post by the actress has resulted to blasphemous comments against the Holy Prophet of Islam on Twitter and other social media handles.
The apex body of northern filmmakers had earlier suspended the actress in October of 2016 for similar misconduct. But the Kano State Censors Board under Mallam Ismail Na Abba Afakkallah granted her unconditional pardon in 2018.
This is although coming a day after the actress took to social media to apologize for her deeds.
Taking to Twitter, Rahama Sadau wrote that she never thought the photo would generate so much controversies as it did across social media.
”Salam, it’s sad and unfortunate waking up to series of unexpected messages, tags & trends over the harmless pictures i posted. As a human, I laughed at some, frowned against many & disapproved most. To the most unfortunate event, some of these comments took a different dimension.
Having mixed followers,bashing each other’s faiths to the extent of creating trends like “Assistant Allah” (subhanallah), raining curses and some tweeting blasphemous words to our Prophet Muhammad (SAW)- this is the height of it and it stands condemnable and regrettable.
I’m with all sense of sincerity, dissociating myself from such derogatory & hurtful words. To everyone who knows me or follows me, should know I’m not d type that react to anything or embrace advices from social media moral police.But my Prophet & religion is where i draw d line.
Any disrespect to my religion and Prophet regarding those pictures remain condemned and reprobated, not in any way & not on any event. The perpetrators should learn to separate people’s way of life and respect for their faiths.
I remain defender of my Prophet in heart, online and offline. I deeply and sincerely apologized for the unseen circumstances that led to these avoidable, yet regrettable dramas.
It’s in human nature to judge others and act as saint, I appreciate those who felt offended & decided to call me through DM’s, Text messages & phone calls. That’s true love & I’m never taking that for granted. EVER!
Lastly, To the bloggers & everyone that saw a chance to trend, I do not wish for you what you wished upon me. “Live & Let Live”
