You see... this is why Nigeria we are going no-where because people like you dont like any improvment for your country. all you do is talk badly about your country.

Everything thats brought out in Nigeria, people dont like it :?: instead of to contribute new ideas so that thingz would move forward and become a better, a'a you ppl prefer to put some garbage onit.
[/size]

Let me ask you a question beuticios & pls be true to yourself. do you preferr to watch fims with voilance, exploit sex (e.g Tony mantana, Za good za bad and za ogly)... or watever that is not right to watch. or do you prefer them to watch hausa movies which at least one will learn something important out of it (e.g Wasila, Kumuci,....) ?

What is so important about learning how to dance with a girl at a "piknik" or singing a contrived,indian copy cat hausa love song in an off key voice. You talk about violence, have you seen some of the badly staged kung fu scenes complete with guns and knifes in some of the more seedier B rate hausa "movies". Isnt this all just a very poor attempt at copying the very same western movies you're condemning? If I want to see indian songs, or a gun fight why watch a poorly shot, poorly produced caricature of the real thing. If I want to watch a hausa movie why would I want to see some joker with a thick accent playing an indian crooner and making an idiot of himself? You see the hausa movies you are talking about dont fit into any defined identity.

I think we should get real about this hausa film stuff. There used to be some good ones with either a comedic appeal or a well directed drama outlining hausa culture and with some kind of "moral to the story" theme like consequences of  forced marriage, evil stepmother etc., but since the indian sing song and "nigga" crap took over its just become a lot of horse s**t. Stuff for small minds and people with no choice.

I'd love to see a revival of the classic hausa dramas that we were all used to, with kasimu yero and co at their best.

I'm afraid i have to toe beautilicious' line. The Ali Nuhus of the "movie" industry just dont do it for some of us!

Personally i dislike hausa fims with all those indian dancing sh** but what i'm trying to make u understand is that when one watches SOME of these hausa fims, he'll dafenately learn a good lesson demonstrated in these movies like the typical lyfstyle of a normal mallam bahaushe.

secondly, i dislike people like BEUTILICOIS (Anfita turai, kai ya waye, an saba da kallon fina-finan turawa a silima) that dislike Hausa or Nigerian stuffs in general to take a good step forward in life; by discouraging our actors, directors & producers. instead of giving advice to them in how to improve their movies and stufff, they just talk rubbish...

Iyye! Kan mage ya waye. Like Dante said, we don't seem to appreciate anything local. I think it is naive to say hausa films "na koyar da wasu tarbiyyu na banza". In ba ku sani ba, bari in gaya muku tarbiyar mu ta dade da lalacewa. Tun kafin a fara fim din hausa tarbiyyar mutanen najeriya, bama na hausawa kawai ba, ya fara baci. Skekaru aru aru da suka shude kuna kallon finafinan turawa na batsa da internet da wake-waken su na tsiraici, baku ce tarbiyyar yaranmu zai baci ba sai yanzu da naku suka fara. Don't deceive yourself. Most of you that condemn hausa films as teaching bad morals have either satelite dishes at home or access to and watch those "barbaric" semi-pornograhic shows called American films, filled with western propaganda. Or, as our "wayayyun" ladies prefer, watch Usher, Snoop doggy etc. Yet you have the temerity to castigate our "proudly made local films".

Ni dai wallahi, 'yan fim din hausa sun yi rawar gani. I have watched quite a few and I loved them. Most of you have not bothered to watch even a single one, yet you sit comfortably and condemn them. What you can't deny them is that they are full of lessons with respect to the happenings in our society. They are not perfect and need polishing but  I say KUDOS TO THEM!!!

Zan ari bakin shi in ci mas albasa.  :lol:  The hausa ifilms are improving, especially with regards to quality of production, visual effects etc, if you get my drift. The only drawback I noticed is the proliferation of producers, thereby increasing the chances/numbers of films with uninteresting and/or repetition of story lines. But you get quite good ones with excellent themes.

I'm with u! i really luv da stories. Even though some people call me

a "local". {na their business} wallahi i dont mind watching hausa films.

and if i was a parent, i'd prefer my child to watch hausa movies rather

than some western movies. Another benefit is these hausa movies

teaches da viewers karin magana and useful proverbs. If there is a

problem, then it shud be da dancing. i dont mind them having a

soundtrack, amma dancing and running through flowers and climbing

mountains and tsalle-tsalle and wuntsulawa, dat is so Bollywood! i think if

these scenes r eliminated, da movies wud be much better and da movie

wud be more religiously acceptable. apart from dat and minor

Sokoto to ban songs, dances in films

Plans are on top gear by the Sokoto state government to ban the use of songs and dances in films produced in the state.

The Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Youths, Sports and Culture, Alhaji Bello Wamakko, said this in Sokoto.

The occasion was the maiden ``Sokoto films award, `` sponsored by a Sokoto-based Algerian CD and video company that the move was to ensure that all films, produced in the state, conformed with the Sharia.

He reiterated the state government's concern over dances and songs in most Hausa films in the country, saying dances and songs were against the rule of Sharia.

``We, therefore, want such indigenous films to reflect on the cultures, religions and norms of the people,'' he stressed.

``We should desist from borrowing any hazardous foreign culture. We should only copy the good ones,'' he added.

Wamakko pointed out that many committees had been set up to ensure that film producers operated within the Islamic legal system.

Many top ranking state and federal officials, notable media practitioners and film producers, actors and actresses were honoured at the event.

Some of them included Alhaji Bello Abubakar, the Sokoto zonal Manager of NTA, Alhaji Ibrahim Isa, the General Manager, Rima Radio and the General Manager, Rima Television, Alhaji Abu Shekara

Banning songs won't be the ultimate solution they assumed it to be. These film producers/actors/actresses are business people and for them, like all business men, the overriding factor in any venture is the returns (profit). Sour as it taste to some, the fact is that these songs are what sell the films! Why? Because the market for these films largely consist of young people (mostly women) who love these songs and consider them the in-thing now. A case in point is how these songs revolutionalize the advertisements in our radio stations. This has economic importance, in case those dudes don't know. Ban these songs and other features and the industry would certainly be moribund! Is the government prepared to cater for the thousands who are presently gainfully employed in the industry? The only person who made any sensible statement regarding this issue is governor Ibrahim Shekarau who allegedly said "karatun fim yafi karatun zaman banza!".

All those screaming for one surgery or the other in hausa films do not even constitute 4% of of the patronizers of the films. Most of them are just "modern day" critics who revel in arm-chair criticisms. For God's sake if you don't like the songs fast-forward them, and if you don't even watch them, then what's your problem? What beats is how suddenly hausa film bashing is the vogue now :?  If our governments are seriuos about social malaise there are more important issues to confront like prostitution, begging, unemployment, hooliganism etc etc etc! Other societies would be proud of such things. But no, in our case, we have to "kill" it! Gyara yana da kyau amma ayi a hankali dai!!!

That person accusing hausa film producers of injecting foreign culture (a la dancing/singing) is probably wearing T-Shirt and Jeans! Or he/she can't even properly express him/herself without making recourse to english language. Yet he would sit down and talk about culture. Daddawa gaya manda baki!

Fateezz, with the advent of globalization/civilization, there comes the gradual fusion of traditions and cultures. You can't run away from borrowing one or two things from other cultures. Am not defending these features in hausa films, but somehow I don't really believe you can have a "pure" hausa film, devoid of all elements of foreign cultures per se. This is even evident in our everyday life; the way we eat, dress and behave are all influenced one way or the other by other cultures be the Arabic, American, Asian etc.

Thanks. Yeah, I've noticed the hostility against the industry here. But I would like to relate it to the "bandwagon effect" we Nigerians are known for! Simply that everyone wants to join in the criticism 'cos it is what everyone is doing :lol:  As I pointed out earlier most of these people haven't a clue about the films 'cos they don't even watch them.

As regards how to improve the industry, I think the best bet is encouragement from the government and not open hostility. You know the carrot and stick approach. Kano state government had organized a yearly award for the industry, rewarding the films that "conform" to acceptable principles. I think that's a step in the right direction. Besides, if the government feels strongly about the film industry, it can be a stakeholder by either financing the "right" films or subsidizing the production costs. Otherwise it is unfair to force these producers into producing what the government feels are the right type of films, and which would most likely not sell. They are in business and not charity.

This is even evident in our everyday life; the way we eat, dress and behave are all influenced one way or the other by other cultures be the Arabic, American, Asian etc.


Yeah i agree with inter cultural fusion and as u put it "it's oky to borrow

1 or 2 thingz" but these days what they add r somehow beyond "1

or 2 things". The songs sound really nice but they are not always very

original. U see in after watching one movie i think it's Khusufi, i went to an

indian place and they were playing Bollywood soundtracks i tell u da song

was exactly da same! same tune, same beat, same instrument, same

everything, only difference was da lyrics. And another one is Nelly & Kelly

Dilemma, also da same beat and da same "gangster dressing" do rags,

dog chains etc etc dat is so not hausa! Infact, dat one don pass be

careful! if we want to have songs and dancing scenes, fine, be more

creative and original.

Glad to finally meet someone who watches the films and so can talk authoritatively (I guess) about them :lol:  Khusufi was a very nice film. Don't know which of the songs you are talking about but I agree it was most likely "crafted" from an indian song. Still there are a lot that have originality. And yes, that "Nelly & Kelly" one is way too bad :roll:  Thanks for your sensible contribution.

Banning songs won't be the ultimate solution they assumed it to be. These film producers/actors/actresses are business people and for them, like all business men, the overriding factor in any venture is the returns (profit). Sour as it taste to some, the fact is that these songs are what sell the films! Why? Because the market for these films largely consist of young people (mostly women) who love these songs and consider them the in-thing now. A case in point is how these songs revolutionalize the advertisements in our radio stations. This has economic importance, in case those dudes don't know. Ban these songs and other features and the industry would certainly be moribund! Is the government prepared to cater for the thousands who are presently gainfully employed in the industry? The only person who made any sensible statement regarding this issue is governor Ibrahim Shekarau who allegedly said "karatun fim yafi karatun zaman banza!".

All those screaming for one surgery or the other in hausa films do not even constitute 4% of of the patronizers of the films. Most of them are just "modern day" critics who revel in arm-chair criticisms. For God's sake if you don't like the songs fast-forward them, and if you don't even watch them, then what's your problem? What beats is how suddenly hausa film bashing is the vogue now :?  If our governments are seriuos about social malaise there are more important issues to confront like prostitution, begging, unemployment, hooliganism etc etc etc! Other societies would be proud of such things. But no, in our case, we have to "kill" it! Gyara yana da kyau amma ayi a hankali dai!!!


True, banning songs might not be da answer. I dont have a problem with

da songs, i have a problem with da dancing. I like it when i watch Naija

movies {southern} don't u just love da soundtracks? don't u like da way

they use it to add life to da movie? Don't u luv da originality of da songs?

every movie they act has a unique melody. it's better put that way. I luv

da originality of da songs. They don't spend time jumping up and down da

place, but yet people still luv da movies. I think hausa movies can do dat

as well. Come to think of it, i think da movie producers have indirectly

sent a subliminal message to our brains and convinced us dat if there is

no song in a movie, then movie is not worth watching. which is so wrong.

Consider da fact dat many different people have different moral values,

some may love the movies but not da dancing while some may have no

problem at all. There have been wonderful movies dat have no dancing

scenes. Have u seen da movie Amina? da one with Kasimu Yero and Pete

Edochie? Now dats a movie! Dats a typical example of taking 1 or 2

thingys from another culture. Dat is a wonderful movie.

One thing u shud remember is dat reducing da rate of other terrible

issues doesn't mean neglecting some moral aspects of our tradition. :!:

I think what you are forgetting is the root-cause of all these features. If you cast your mind back to the past you realised that Indian movies are patronized mainly in Northern Nigeria. In fact they don't watch them in the south. It's like there is a subtle cultural similarity between hausa and indian cultures. A nan wake-waken suka samo asali. A perusal of nigerian (home videos) movies would tell you that they tend to tilt towards American/English cultures. What with all the on-camera kissing, shooting, explicit sex scenes, e.t.c.

I'm not saying we should copy these movies, i'm not saying we shud

copy the western culture at all! what i am saying is dat i like da way they

arrange their songs, there r no dancing scenes but yet it still blends in.

Am only trying to  provide my humble opinion of why the songs in hausa movies in the first place. Yeah, they watch hindi movies in the south but the percentage is so negligible. Do you know there was a time Nigeria ranked among the top 4 countries in the comsumption of indian films :roll: And the bulk of these films come to the north. The similarity b/w hausa & Indian culture might not be much, but I think the key issue here there is a similarity, compared to the western culture. So there are no dancing in naija movies 'cos from the beginning they are not used to them, film-wise :wink:

Copying/Borrowing!. Is there really a difference in this context? Carefully go thru my posts again. The points am trying to make summarily are:

1. Agreed singing and dancing in hausa films are borrowed (or copied if that would make you happier) from indian films.

2. The root-cause of this, in my humble opinion, is the somewhat close "affinity" hausas have with indian movies for decades (memories of those days we stayed late at night to watch the weekly indian feature film at CTV 67)

3. Hausa films are not the only, neither would they be the last, to borrow/copy foreign cultures into their films. The home videos or nigerian films are full of western cultures, while the indian films now tend to look American, e.t.c

4. This is not to say borrowing/coping other cultures is the best thing to do but that it is inevitable. You can't run away from that. From the way you talk, walk, eat, behave e.t.c.

No, Mr Kunte. On the contrary, I think they are doing their best and improving. There are lots of imperfections in the industry and need polishing, just like in every other aspects of our society. What they deserve is our encouragement, not open hostility, threats and insults. I say kudos to them for surviving in an "un-believing" society (laughs).

Going by the thread of this topic I can say that I support Hausa Films 95%. When you want to criticize try to look at the advantage and the disadvantage of it, compare and contrast then when the disadvantage is heavier then u can hate it.

Before Hausa films was introduced, you will hear alot of us miming Indian songs and mind you on their songs they may be serving their Hindu Gods and a Muslim will be following them, enjoying their lyrics, if I may ask do you think this can be present in Hausa Films?

There was a time when Nigerian or rather Ibgo/Yoruba films was reigning and alot of us here in the North were copying what those people are portraying in there films which if not because of Hausa films alot of our moral Values, Culture and behaviour will have vanish by now.

Let not try to look it in terms of Ali Nuhu, Dan Ibro or Maishinku but try to look at the good behaviour which they try to teach us. As some body said if you don't like the music just Fast forward it, and if their is no Music in their films I tell you they are not going to sell them.

Hausa film has improve our marketting strategies cos, the quality of Production, Job Opprtunity, Skills in Art fields and numerous of them to mention.

Hausa film producers are always seeking for advice on anything they do, and they always call our attention for support and good avice towards what they should do so as to improve and maintain Hausa culture.  

So to me when I look at this aspects I will say more Kudos to their activities.

That was a good post. :lol:  You've said it all. I keep telling people at least now you have a film to call your own. Not to mention the economically related advantages. As you rightly pointed out, before the advent of hausa films we were left watching/admiring igbo and yoruba films as if we don't have the intellect to produce ours. Another important issue you raised is that if  people have problem with the actors why not rather consider the messages in the films and not the personal characteristics of the actors. In other words, "think the message, not the messenger".

they are most times morally inadequate not to mention religiously bankrupt
most non-kanawas i meet expect that i think an act like a character in a typical hausa homveV
this pisses me off!!
they should either be banned or they get their act together.

Really? Uhm, let me see... Tubali, Khusufi, Kusurwar Danga, Sansani, Khushu'i, Sutura, Kasko, Wata Rana, Mara Gaskiya, etc.  The list is long. So all these do not potray - oops! Sorry. I remember. You don't even watch them. So you won't even know.

Unlike you, most of the non-kanawas I meet in other states never pass up the opportunity of letting me know they salute the operators of the hausa film industry. I get inundated with questions about the industry plus the actors/actresses. And unlike you, I can never be pissed off if people associate me with hausa film characters, by virtue of where I come from. Rather that than people saying I behave like a character out of Western (read American) and Nigerian (read southern) movies. But of course you presumably live in Lagos. :)  Where, to the average southerner, "Malo" can never do anything right. :lol:

Lastly, for hausa film lovers, I just came across a newly released film, Farin Wata. It is a lovely film, well written and acted. The storyline is based on the advantages and likely dangers married couples encounter when living with their parents in the same house. That is when you have a Mother-in-law living under the same roof with her son and his wife.

Well.............itz dis issue we dwellin on again.............(http://smileys.smileycentral.com/cat/23/23_20_02.gif)
Ma view..........I dnt lyk Hausa movies (whoaaaa) b/4 u all raise ur daggers.....lemme rant on den u can stab.....if I claim 2 hav watched 2 hausa films den I've lied. Am no fanatic 4 southern movies either & dat goes 4 western movies but dat dont mean I neva watch movies per se.

Yeah....on d whole, hausa films creates job opportunities 4 alot of ppl. An inspiration 2 SUM ppl, stars serving as role models in away 4 up n becoming inspiring actor/ress.  It is sumthin dat d hausa ppl can call dey own ryt? Creates a huge market chain, cus in ma belief enithin worth buyin  is worth sellin correct? A leisure treatment session 2 parlay on d higest level n watch wateva film u got. (well if dats wat sum ppl call chillin)But den again all these relates 2 any movie, b it western, southern or northern movie, a movie is a movie.

If ma memory serves me ryt, bout 4yrs bck, on a visit 2 a freinz grandmahs aunts couzin nephews, step brothas, uncles half aunts, house (she laffs) ok....I went 2 a freinz house n dey were watchin comedy sum lanky REAL skinny guy was a comedian.  I personally cannot & do not posses d talents he potrays. I mean making bout 12 ppl in dat sittinroom nothing but laugh is sumthin huge n dat I respect. He aint duin anything illegal, but legal, he juss tryna make a livin, well mayb d more privileged onces r used 2 havin mummy n daddy lavish n flavour dem wit dey wants n needs, mayb dat man don?t?. He juss tryin 2 make Naira?n personally 2 me he is juss lyk d regular Jim Carrey....crackin audience up, humour is gud....makes a dull day bright....yet again all these do not interest meh??..but I will not stand n belittle or degrade any hausa movie actor/tress on wat dey lyk duin best. Free world, free lyf style, freee choices. Dahhhhg! u ppl r surely........tyt on these ppl, let dem breath a lil.

Naw where ma negativity strikes a great deal is thou I do nt hav an in depth knowlegde on hausa movies. From old topic we've discussed bout films sum u wud kno.....all in all where hausa movies fanatic were pouncin on is one thing & one thing only an in d lyt of dat thing it all boils dwn 2 upholdin CULTURE!

Now wen we say culture, which culture r we tlkin bout cus in Kano alone there is a huge numba of culture practised by diff ppl , hausa, Igbo, Yoruba, Tiv, Kanuri  & Fulani (which shud even cum first in ma list, she laffs). Ok lets say dey potrayin hausa culture, fantastic! Now in all prehistoric tyms, or tym immemorial..............tell me specifically which of our culture does potrays which has been practiced since den till naw:

1.there shud exist a dancing session b/w a man & a woman soley cus dey inluv?  (puhleeeeeeeeez gimme a break!)

2.girls shud open their hair & scoot up in tuggin wears displayin their bumpers in truncks? (we got modesty in dressin, case it sounds new in ur ears).

3.tell me exactly @ which point in tym does hausa culture provide dat a gul or a guy shud sing their heart out cus dey inluv?

4.B/4 a bad story ends good, a lot of bad messages hav already been transferred 2 minds of ppl (i.e b/4 Tanko will finally bewed his heartrob Binta?..chaos upon chaos musta happened, Goggo Maryam must hav gone 2 all those lousy trad medine men 4 divine spiritual powers 2 stop d weddin cus she wants Bintas boo 4 her daughter??.bt @ d end of d day?..Tanko & Binta will surely still wed?.ryt? So why passin 2hrs of unmannerly, immorally, not socially message 2 get a good msg accross. Positive shud go wit postive. Hav I confused u enuff?

Ok mayb dats nt enuff, Islamically, accordin 2 d rules of shariah it forbids a woman 2 walk hair open, wear tuggin or provocative clothings dat cud result  a mans gaze on her, if its gaze or glimpse wudha been betta but (PROPER LOOK?.THESE MEN STARE & LOOK @ EVERY DETAIL LIKE XTRAY machines). Islam also forbids close encounters, none other dan ur muharram??but nooooo we sing close 2 each oda, & Gud lawd of merci lyk dat is not enuff.........I dunno ha dey du it but wat I dnt lyk is sum1 starin ryt in2 ma eye balls......but in d process of singin & all lovy dovy....dey ace in dat.......Addini yer fada a man or a womans gaze shud drop once eye contact has been made......these r juss a few of d forbiddens!

And some of u r here lamentin culture!culture! (I hiss 2 dat). .....Drop all dat bull n lets potray religion. It came b/4 culture??..First cum, first serve! Easy 2 potray culture, but less patriotic 2 potray religion abi? Am not perfect neither anyone is, But according 2 d Books Allah, we hav clear rules & guidance 4 us nt 2 dwell in ignorance, with my little knowledge, I hav read d whole qur?an & still learning, from I have read n learnt nothing in there displays dat we shud potray culture 2 d xtend we start makin blunders by breaching r rules of shariah. C'mon ppl wake up n smell d fish. Let?s not camouflage negativity with false claims on d positivity of culture.

Naa, if its culture dey really wanna potray, a female actress shud drop d trash n pick up d clean......lets c a gul in wrappers beautifully covered in veils, a guy in real trad clothes n if dey wanna potray culture......movies shud b shot in real mud house in d beauty of a village site, food shud b brought in calabashs, ....I can go on & on!............I kno silly as it sounds ryt cus we in d millenieums....REAL CULTURE IS FADING AWAY & Hausa film supporters shud stop using culture 2 brainswash d public @ large. So dey r not even pursuin careers n tryin 2 achieve dey own goals koh? If its all but culture, let dem giv d movies out 4 free! Kyauta ai iz part of culture koh? It juss kills meh wen I sit n read sum comments where one wud say ?ai is cus u guys western in movie fondness n all? propa bull. I hav betta grounds 2 stand b base ma dissaproval and ma justification.

I do not watch hausa films, I do not have an interest in it. I do not mynd those who make dem nor those whowatch dem. Its their way 2 make a livin, 2 pursue a dream, 2 do wat dey lyk 4 viewers, its a choice of preference????so its all fair n square but buryin this in ur minds??.religion shud b practised & preached!

2 b more controversial.......we all kno, lyin is a sin,.....n liers r sinners,  n sinners go where? If ppl put up a false act 2 make believe wat dey duin den wat hav dey done & wat r dey? (she laffs badly)

Naw?.we got betta issues 2 rant?.on, dis same topic is in kano4fum??.4 naaa, let it slide, we got better worries bout makin d betterment of our society!


Phewwww..................afta readin so many topics....I FEEL REALLY OLD N AGED, seemz lyk I hvnt been here in decades. I miss ya all.....D-Kay,Kitkat,zeeze,,Fateez,Gimbs,Twinks, Mlbash,Gogannaka......CRAZY Hafsy.......if I havnt called ur name........u juss too special 2 b mentioned

Bakan Geezo, ma late welcominz 2 u bt happy stays in k-onlyn.

Now in all prehistoric tyms, or tym immemorial..............tell me specifically which of our culture does potrays which has been practiced since den till naw:

Well any muslim should consider his/her culture to mean all the customs, practices, and social behavior of his/her particular tribe or people at a particular time which does not contravene or contradict the injunctions of islaam as laid down by Qur'an ad Sunnah in accordance with Shari'ah.
This is what i,at least, meant when i mentioned culture

Quote from: "Bakan~Gizo"
Really? Uhm, let me see... Tubali, Khusufi, Kusurwar Danga, Sansani, Khushu'i, Sutura, Kasko, Wata Rana, Mara Gaskiya, etc. The list is long. So all these do not potray - oops! Sorry. I remember. You don't even watch them. So you won't even know.


Actually even though i live in Lagos,i live with people who are unfortunately addicts of huasa homVs so i am sometimes forced to endure hours of these moves,and i have seen quite a few.
But maybe i have been exposed only 2 the bad ones.ill try n get these which you have mentind.i hope they are wholesome and reprent our true culture,mentality and religion.
My problem with being associated with these characters from hausahomVs  is that they dont have orginality ie they themselves try to copy foreign cultures(formally indian but now they have graduated to american by incorporating the dress code of americans especially the women)which i believe is not representative most kano poeple and  hausa people in general.
i hope their blind following of foreign cultures if not totaly reversed should stop at dressing only.i hope and pray they do not soon incorporate "inocent" physical contact in their movies.

I understand and agree with your concern. That's why Iam choosy when it comes to watching them. Some of the films like Kallabi, Bakace, Jarida, Bakar Ashana and their likes are, to me, stupid and meaningless. But like I said there are quite decent ones to watch.

For the very first time, the Hausa film industry was recognized in an international award ceremony. Recently, organizers of the afrohollywood Award, a U.K. based African  organization that recognise and reward excellence in African film industries, included  the northern part of Nigeria for the first time. In a colorful ceremony in London, Ali Nuhu, after being voted the best in Hausa film genre, was given the award. Zahra'u Shata (who has retired from the industry after getting married), was voted best female category, but unfortunately could not the ceremony in London because she has just put to bed. Ali Nuhu was also specially recognised for his arewa attire at the cermony. Others given awards are Tu-Face, Okey Bakkasi, and some form other african countries.

Its good to hear Hausa anything being given recognition outside the shores of Africa..(but id rather if it due something noble and good like finding acure for HiV or some other academic or scientific acheivment...but anyways HausaFim 'll do)
But the queation that keeps acting up in my mind is:do these people(organizers of the afrohollywood Award) really watch Hausa film and are really in touch and up to speed  on the Hausa HV industry?
Or did they just do it for the sake of including Hausa films to the African event?

Post by: jewel(abdulgee22) on December 07, 2005, 01:23:08 PM
But plz a good question about hausa films is that "who watches hausa film" and hw many ppl amoung u bought the latest hausa film in market?

By the way the whole thing about making films is to make money(gain), so if those ppl watching films want ..................all the ALI NUHUS and DAN IBROs DANCING and SINGING, with the karin maganas and all the things that never suits u , all u can do is "DONT WATCH IT".
i think in KANO if u will make a census of ppl that like HAUSA films with all that stuff , u will see is a high ratio. if not they would have been out of business, since!

After all ppl watched indian films b4.............with no concept of d language , so nowdays is much more simpler becus we have "black hausa indians" and ppl dey grab d whole thing.

Go to the south all their films is about  "black magic" and all those stupid stuffs of arm robbery etc.

is all about d market.

so i guess we all started with a wrong step.

by the way i vote for DAN IBRO

They couldn't have been watching (or following) Hausa films per se. Remember the award covers some other African countries. It would be a herculian task for the organizers to have to be watching the films, which are produced in different languages, made in all the countries. I think what they do is send their representatives to study a particular industry (quality of films produced, turnover of production and sales, etc) and then ask people who watch these films to vote for the actors/actresses they consider the best. Whatever the case, the most important thing to me was that the Hausa film is at least given a recognition. One good thing also was that Ali Nuhu was the only one at the event who wore a traditional (Hausa) dress. All the other recipients were in suits. The MC gave him a special mention for that.

Well...if you put it this way i realize that there is a difference between recognition and being awarded.
Like the organizers of the event,i don't really follow the industry so i,unlike them, am not in a position to say if the award is justified(or not)...but i maintain Hausa should have been recognized for more original and relevant things.
Well Nuhu's dress code,unlike many of his movies, was original and i comend him for that.

Hey, i beleive everybody should be free(at least within set limits of religion and decent morality anyway) to watch whatever he feels does it for him/her.y concern is that the medium of 'showbiz' is a profound mass media tool and helps to potray or set concepts or setereotypyes about its subjets.For example for majority of people abroad who don't know the firrst thing about hausaland or its people but have had the misfortune to witness the awards have now subconsiously set in their minds clips of movies they saw at the show or Nuhu in his 'dress' as the quntisential hausa man potraying all of hausa culture and traditions...just as for us who have never been to india or china expect to see people singing and dancing to love songs while running around on the streets of india or fighting each other and practicing diffrents forms of martial arts just to settle simple disputes in china.
Also just as you have pointed out,i all have a subconcious image that our neighbours from 'the south' ALL indulge in 'black magic',ocultism,robery and violence as a second nature,but on the contray i have been there and seen that the actual situation is far from what we think.

Ofcourse abdul they would have been outta business long time ago... and these guys r still improving in the business. A friend of mine who is in the acting business (will smith of Nigeria) was in the U.K sometime ago was telling me how it feels to be a nigerian celebrity 'n he is really happy for what he was doing. Besides.... it pays the bills.

Guys, this is a matter of choice! These days everyone is borrowing other ppl's culture be it (clothing, language, style or something else). these guys tend to like how indians dance coz it suits many ppl's lives (many Arewa's).

I know u all have tastes... be it music, movies... and ya all buy CD'z of whoeva u wanna listen to. I myself (black guy from nigeria) sometime listen to french rap music, but dont know what the **** these guys say. Its sometime a matter of what tunes u In.

Thank you, Dante. In my earliest posts I try to point this particular idea out. The world is such now that cultural exclusivity(sp)? is really difficult. There is cross-fertilization of cultures. However, that is not say one is advocating a wholesale adoption of foreign cultures.

i can say that i am a fan of the hausa film industry. watching the films lets me know more of my people and what changes are now occuring in the life of the young and old in nigeria. but there should be some minor changes in the movies. well for starters the singing and dancing should be cut from 10 min. to at least 3 min. this way the viewer can get right back into the movie rather wonder where they left off before they started dancing. another thing is the commercials that are being plugged in the middle of the movie, that throws the viewer off of the movie. also with the singing and dancing, they should do hausa music rathe rthan copy the indian way of singing and dancing. i know hausa music is more appealing withthe sound of the drums and the dancing to the drums, but besides that, i love the hausa movies and i one day would also want to star in a hausa film. " if there are any directors who are looking to film a hausa movie based on a hausa girl from america and her lost love in kano give me a call and ill be there! lol

we will call the movie " masoie na" lol  starring naijagal and adams zango

Please Mr. Admin Sir, if it won't trouble you too much and if it

Allah sarki, they're only trying to make a living. With da current situation in our beloved naija ehn...hmm.

Hehe, relaxer to bleach their skin?? Thats a bit harsh. I think it's just one of da rumours people spread

about them. Maybe they bleach, dats their problem, but i dont think they wud use relaxers (of all

products) when there r other products available at really cheap prices. Hehe, bleaching with relaxer? Abun

mamaki! in fact relaxers make your skin darker - not lighter. Ever noticed when da hair dresser puts relaxer

on your side burns after you wash it out dat place wud be black for a week not to talk of da annoying scar

it wud leave when it goes. Plus people dat relax hair with their bare hands end up with darker nails and skin

for at least a week. So if they use relaxer on their skin it wudnt make them anymore "attractive" wud it?

da people. Kawai dan ba'a son shi shine za'a watsa mai acid? So they wish to employ body guards, i totally

Wallahi, you are right. Sometimes I don't blame them. I remember when Sadiya Gyale was slapped by someone along Tarauni road. Just like that. It was very humuliating. In public. I knew Ali Muhu to be a kind guy during our secondary sch. days.

Imagine fa, u r just innocently walking and minding ur own biz someone

comes and slaps you? It's really really humiliating...I dnt even know how

i'd react if i was in dat situation. Plus Sadiya gyale seems like a nice person.

She's almost always at H.R.B. Whenever we go to buy movies she usually

suggests new releases and interesting ones and even when we left and

came back 2 da shop a few months later i was surprised she still remembered

us and even our names. She's really easygoing and polite, i cant even imagine

her picking up a fight on da street with a random person. I think if we don't

start treating them right, and respecting their stardom, they are not going to

People need to be sensitized against this kind of prejudice. Our Local muallims also contribute no bi small to this kin wulakan ci that these actors suffer, because all the time one go dey hear na against culture na against this na against that. Abi even the hausa culture wasnt as it is maybe 300yrs ago or even fifty yrs ago.
I wonder how they fare with HISBA? Ko da yake they probably all watch the finafinan hausan anyway.
I think the best thing is to do a documentary on the lives of these actors so that ppl see that they are no different from anyone else and that could generate some sympathy.

Ban da zagi da suke sha. Wani lokacin sai kawai ka ji an bi su ana musu ihun "karuwai". It isn't fair. Shi yasa wani lokacin suke gudun shiga mutane. Yes I remember the Ali Nuhu incident, when he was beaten balck and blue. He spent days in the hospital. Incidentaly, have you watched his English/Nollywood film, "Sitanda" ?

No i havent seen it, Is it recent??  ???  ???  ???

Yeah that wud be a good idea. Tho i think there has been one in da past with a similar

story line. Sansani. Prof. Abdalla mentioned it was about Ahmed S Nuhu (AJR)'s life story.

Too bad i havent seen da part 2 so i dunno how it ended. Da first part showed this boy

from a disfunctional family wanting to be a hausa actor right from childhood and when he

grew up he still wanted to act, but his Late father's other wives and their kids reckon he's

going to ruin their family name....Ah! So much drama! Trust Saratu Gidado with these kind

of films. I enjoyed it.

Sansani II is quite good. It gives the film a befitting ending.

Yes, Sitanda is a recent film. It is an epic produced by Amstel Malta, featuring other nollywood stars like Irety Doyle, Stephanie Okereke, Bob Manuel, Azizat etc. Ali Nuhu was later nominated as the "Best African Upcoming Actor' for the African Movie Award Ceremony, schduled to take place in either Nigeria or Ghana. I forgot where or when exactly, so I'm not aware if he eventually won or not.

Hausa film fans....

I came across this clip, an interview with Adam A Zango

Adam Zango addresses his fans and responds to critics--from Wazobiya album (Hausa) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r2ur5crQ2ic#lq-lq2-hq)

It really made me realize how one sided the info we get about Kannywood is.

I think it's refreshing once in a while to hear the other side of the story.

All people do is speculate and generalize everybody in that industry...so sad for them, really.

I pray they all get back on their feet soon.

It is not really one-sided these days, fateez. They are regular interview and phone-in programmes on Freedom FM, Kano FM, Ray Power FM where they participate. Even this weekend I heard Farida Jalal on Ray Power FM.

Most, if not all, of the songs were composed/written and recorded by Sadi Sidi Sharifai. Ibro only features in videos. Even in this one you can see Sadi recording the song in the studio.

Hehehehe, Bakan Gizo! Ban da damar maganar Hausa films, ko?

Having watched Hausa movies for a considerably long period of time, I am well aware that

that most actors (apart from Danja and some exceptions) do not write their own lyrics nor

sing their own songs. I think Yakubu Muhammad is the most sought after lyricist for the

mainstream movies. However, to my knowledge, Ibro does write many of his songs. He just

doesnít vsing the songs and thatís where Sadi Sidi Sharifai comes in. Heís Ibroís singing

voice but  the content is Ibro. The one song that Iím 100% sure Ibro wasnít involved in is

Sankarau, thatís the one released when he was in prison (Which is also hilarious, by the

way). So yes, Iím aware he doesn;t sing it, but itís still an Ibro song and besides, I was only

pointing out how hilarious it is, Ibro or non-Ibro.

Kin ga dama kin leko mu?

You sure Ibro wrote "Bayanin Naira"?
Yeah, Yakubu Mohammed leads as a lyricist, but I believe Nazifi Asnanic, Adam Nagudu, Abubakar Sani are up there with him now.
