The northern filmmakers under the aegis of Motion Picture Practitioners Association of Nigeria (MOPPAN) has suspended Kannywood actress, Rahama Sadau over a backless dress she wore in recent photos posted online.
According to Vanguard, the body in a statement said the post by the actress has resulted to blasphemous comments against the Holy Prophet of Islam on social media.
This comes after the actress posted a video on IG where she apologized and begged Muslim community for forgiveness over the controversy that trailed the dress
The publication of the pictures generated a heated debate among her fans, with one of the pictures becoming the talking point.
In the picture, the actress wore a stylishly blended dress with an open back trimmed to fit her buttocks.
Many fans lashed at the actress over the dress, resulting in a heated debate among them on her social media pages.
Some insisted she should not have posted a picture of her dressed that way on her pages, saying as a Muslim, she should not be encouraging indecency.
The debate became so hot that the actress had to comment and subsequently deleted the picture and comments from her pages. She then apologised for her action that ignited the debate.
She said “It’s sad and unfortunate waking up to series of unexpected messages, tags & trends over the harmless pictures I posted. As a human, I laughed at some, frowned against many & disapproved most. To the most unfortunate event, some of these comments took a different dimension.
“I’m with all sense of sincerity, dissociating myself from such derogatory & hurtful words. To everyone who knows me or follows me, should know I’m not the type that reacts to anything or embrace advices from social media moral police. But my Prophet & religion is where I draw the line.
