Kannywood actress, Rahama Sadau has revealed she almost got married at a very young age of 13.
Rahama Sadau, who recently gained grounds in Nollywood and even Hollywood due to a ban from the Northern movies practitioners, spoke about her life as an actor and on the issue of child marriage in an interview.
Asked about what she thinks can be done to change the culture of child marriage prevalent in the Northern part of Nigeria, Rahama revealed that even she almost got married at the age of 13.
“Some of us have been fighting against early marriage and girl child education, though it is a very sensitive issue. Whenever you talk against early child marriage, religion will definitely come in. So, it is very sensitive.
“On my part, I’m trying to create awareness by sitting with parents to enlighten them. In my own case, I almost got married at the age of 13. So many things happened. But we are working on it.”
On how she survived that period, she said:
“For me, I will always be grateful to my mum. She always wants us to achieve.”
