Renowned Kannywood actor, Ali Nuhu, has revealed that his religion and culture stopped him from kissing and hugging in movies.
The Kannywood thespian, who also doubles as a Nollywood actor, said this in a recent interview with the BBC.
Nuhu said he stopped kissing and hugging in Nigerian movies because of his religion and culture.
“I come from the North, and I’m a Muslim. My culture and religion does not allow for that, so I stopped acting in scenes like that.
“People talk about it all over but I personally think it out as an ambassador of my culture and religion and stopped,” he noted.
Kannywood is the Hausa film industry, headquartered in Kano, Nigeria.
