Kannywood actress, Rahama Sadau is one of the stars of Ebonylife TV‘s new show, Sons of the Caliphate, a drama series based on the lives of three rich, entitled, passionate and ambitious young men, Kalifah, Nuhu and Diko, all caught up in the hidden corners of power, the darkness of addiction, the heat of love and desire, the obligations of family loyalty, and the craving for revenge.
At the media screening of the new series in Lagos yesterday, the actress spoke to Premium Times about her role in Sons of the Caliphate, her recent ban, her journey into acting, her limits in the profession amongst other things.
When she was asked about how she felt starring in her first big Nollywood feature, she said, “I feel so great and happy to have been featured in the series. I have actually worked so hard for it. The 13-part drama series promises to take the audience on a journey into the rich, cultural and flamboyant aristocratic lifestyle of Northern Nigerian. I played the role of Binta Kutigi a confident, intelligent, witty and composed Northern “chick” who is stylish, elegant and yet traditional. I starred alongside Patrick Doyle, Mofe Duncan, and Sani Muazu.”
Rahama said she did not want to discuss the MOPPAN ban but is encouraged daily by the love and support she receives from her fans and family.
The actress added that she can’t change the culture but she has to be careful with what she does.
When she was asked if she was willing to marry an actor she said, “Yes I can because I know he will appreciate my career better and allow me excel as an actress. If I marry a non-actor and a northerner, from the other side I will definitely stop acting.”
