Followers of the popular hit TV drama series, MTV Shuga, are set for an immersive experience as popular Northern-based actors, Rahama Ibrahim Sadau and Yakubu Mohammed are set to feature in the upcoming series.
Being one of the very few Kannywood actors, who have successfully crossed over into Nollywood, Rahama has starred in some notable productions, including Super Story.
With her first movie appearance in 2013, the actress, model, producer, director and television personality has become a household name in both the Kannywood and Nollywood scene, as well as other prominent film industries.
She played a few minor roles before gaining fame from her performance in Gani ga Wane alongside fellow Kannywood celebrated actor, Ali Nuhu.
Dubbed the queen of Kannywood, Sadau was literally unknown until sometime in October 2016, when she became a hot topic following her expulsion from the Hausa film industry by Motion Pictures Practitioners Association of Nigeria (MOPPAN) for featuring in a romantic music video by Jos base singer, ClassiQ.
MTV Shuga has at its core sexual and reproductive health messaging for young people, aimed at enabling them to make healthy lifestyle choices. The TV drama series is produced by the MTV Staying Alive Foundation and made possible by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and supported by MTV Base Africa, as well as a host of other partners.
MTV Shuga will premiere on MTV Base (DStv Channel 322)) and BET (DStv channel 129) and other third party broadcasters around the world in 2018.(Guardian)
