Kannywood Sex Accusation: Actresses React, Give Sarkin Waka 72hrs to Apologise
By Kaosara Olayemi Oladimeji
Kannywood Women Association of Nigeria (K-WAN) has given singer Naziru Ahmad Sarkin Waka a three-day deadline to apologize to Kannywood women or face legal action for defamation of character against Kannywood women members.
It was said in a statement signed by K-WAN chairperson Hajiya Hauwa A. Bello and issued in Kano.
According to her, the singer’s comments that some women give sexual gratification in order to acquire roles in movies have tarnished the integrity of women in the industry.
She added that the association will not fold its arms and watch people drag the industry’s integrity into the mud without justification. She explained that the association requests that the singer apologises to Kannywood and if he fails to do that before 72 hours, the association will be left with no option than to seek redress before a Shari’a court.
It could be recalled that, veteran actress Ladin Chima had made a claim if being under paid as an actress, and her claim had generated a serious debate on various social media platforms.
It was also on the veteran actress’s claim and the subsequent debunking of her claim by Ali Nuhu and other Kannywood artist that the singer made the assertion that trigger the court action threat by K-WAN.
