Kano Actress banned from movies Over Marriage Crisis  

The actress, Tuge

A director and producer of a Kannywood series movie, Ahmad Bifa said, he has banned an actress, Hafsat Tuge, from featuring in his movie, Amaryar Tiktok, over the crisis rocking her marriage.   

Tuge’s hubby, Sani Umar Gwarzo, had cried out, alleging that she is into acting against his wish, and movie producers are using money to turn her against him.  

Gwarzo went on, threatening to take the issue up legally and also get the Hisbah Police involved.  

In turn, the actress said they were no longer married, and accused him of envy her rise to stardom in an interview with Freedom FM, “My ex-husband is just envious of my progress because he never thought I would become what I am today. He has said several times that I will never progress in life. 

“But as a matter of fact, he divorced me. When I came back from a trip, I approached him, but he said if I was still seeing myself as his wife, then I was deceiving myself. That is indirectly a divorce.” 

Weighing in on the matter, Bida in an interview with the same medium announced that he has done away with the actress and would only reabsorb her if she registered with actors’ associations. 

His word, “I have no option but to drop her from the movie because of this issue of whether she is married or not. But all I know is we didn’t feature her until we were assured that she registered with all the Kannywood associations, including the censorship board.”
