18th June 2013, is the beginning of Rahama Sadau’s career journey, as she took her first step into acting. Gani ga wane, her first movie, is a masterpiece. She played the female lead role alongside the multiple award-winning actor, Ali Nuhu. “At first, I was very nervous and a little bit scared of Ali Nuhu because of his charisma and level of professionalism” Rahma said.
Her first performance was excellent even though she acted alongside Ali Nuhu, who is a figure among Nigerian actors. However, only few actors have a great start like hers. It could be simply a case of being in the right place, at the right time but her great start wasn’t a coincidence, an avid follower of bollywood movies, Rahama has understanding of the movies even before her debut. That explains her strong start and her outstanding performances.
Now, simply the most promising new actor in Kannywood, everybody will agree with me if I say Rahama Sadau is among those few actors whose names will remain in bold in the history of kannywood. She is the most brightest and most talented new comer of this generation. Her performances will have u invested in her characters. When it comes to dancing, Rahama Sadau is the biggest name you’d hear. She’s unique. When she was asked of her experience, her reply was “well I found myself in a strange life, in the midst of strange people. At first, I was very nervous when ever I am on set. I felt I’m still new and fresh. I have this experience of living a life full of hard work and dedication”.
Although, there has been a surge of young actors over the past years, only a few have managed to make a mark. Having breakfast in kaduna, lunch in Abuja and dinner in Jos becomes her day to day activity. That’s how busy she is. Nobody expects to go through life without meeting challenges. Difficulties and perplexity are inevitable to human experience. Rahama met a lot of challenges in her first year which are not easily identifiable. She has made rivals due to the level of her professionalism. They are all around her. “But I don’t feel their presence, just living my life as Rahma Sadau. I believe if u don’t have them, you are nobody and you will never be somebody” said Rahma.
When we talk of achievement, we simply say set aims or goals you have achieved, or yet to achieve in life. There are two principles that keep us going in life. Which are: Faith and courage. With these principles at heart, you will persevere, conquer and you will never regret or fail in all your endeavors. Rahama Sadau always have these principles in mind and she is under no delusion. She knows she has a long way to go and is willing to work hard to be the best. And that’s what got her success by achieving her goals faithfully.
Alhamdulillah, Rahama has won two accolades in a single year and nominated in two categories of City People Award. She featured in 36 movies out of which she described Dogon Zamani has her best, because she played a role she never thought she can play. Has anyone ever wondered why Rahama Sadau is making fans at every angle? The “Sizzling Siren” as described by her mentor, Ali Nuhu, is very simple and friendly. She has an outstanding human relations unlike other actors. She described her fans as one of the most successful things that ever happen to her. Rahma “in short time of my professional career, I can say it with a loud voice that I have been given much love and support from my fans. The account of @rahma_sadaufans is part of the extreme love I got from fans.” She’s is the first ever kannywood actress to have a fan page on twitter, and the only kannywood actress that can speak hindi fluently.
And on her mentor, Ali Nuhu, Rahma has nothing but gratitude for him “there are no words enough to describe my sincere gratitude and appreciation. You are the beginning of Rahma Sadau. You mean the world to me. Thank you and may Allah bless you and your family”
Today, being her first anniversary in kannywood, Rahama Sadau wishes to convey a message to her fans, family, Mentor and Kannywood in general. Rahma “I thank God the mighty for giving me the capacity and competent to share my experience with you confidently with caution to talk calmly and comprehensively. I promise you all that I will never let u down. You have made me who I am but what I am and what I am aiming for. You have made me to know beyond the horizon, in fact you have made my world. Thank you all and Jazakumul lahu khair”
