- Kannywood actress is on the hot seat again and this time is facing questions regarding her faith
- The expelled actress that moved up to join Hollywood after an invite from singer Akon was accused of converting to Christianity
- She came out to debunk the rumours saying her religion is not up for bargain
Rahama Sadau is a 23-year-old actress who is the founder of the charitable organization, Ray of Hope. The Hausa actress who was recently banned from Kannywood but moved on after an invite to Hollywood is facing all sort of criticisms about her faith.
The banned actress who moved to Los Angeles after her expulsion, has been accused of abandoning her Islam faith and making plans to convert to Christianity in order to be fully accepted in the Hollywood circle.
The accusation was released in an audio recording that was circulated on popular messaging app, watsapp. The faceless recording mentioned that the actress is making plans to convert to Christianity while she lives in the United states.
The actress denied the accusation saying it was a plan to tarnish her image. Read below:
“I am deeply saddened by this accusation, and the fact that it generated comments from society fathers and religious elders without verification. This has offended my family and friends, hence why I have been left with no choice, but to address this issue publicly. I hereby categorically state that the contents of the recording about me are baseless and untrue. It is merely a very poor attempt at defamation of character."
“My work anywhere in the world remains strictly professional and the issue of my faith has never and will never be a bargaining tool, nor is it a clause in any terms and conditions in my engagements. Sadly Akon, who is of Senegalese origin, a Muslim and philanthropist to his country, has also been dragged into this and been tagged an “infidel” by the media reports of some Islamic leaders."
“Although the first audio is available, the engineer of this false statement did not state his name, attempts are still being made to identify the creator. In the interim, I urge those circulating the said malicious statement to please stop, and my well-wishers and relatives continue to offer their support and belief in my stand. Wherever my profession may lead me, I will be recognized and accepted first as an African, a Nigerian and I proudly respect my heritage, which is taking me places.”
