In December, Abeokuta would host most of Nigeria’s celebrated entertainers for the Best of Nollywood award. Already, two of industry’s new generation actors; Gbenro Ajibade and Rahama Sadau, have been unveiled as hosts of the awards.

The executive producer of BON, Seun Oloketuyi, gave reasons why the two were selected among the plethora of entertainers.

He said, “The choice of Rahama and Gbenro was a painstakingly debated one. Our criteria were diversity, versatility and youthfulness. Some other names came up for consideration but Gbenro and Rahama tick the boxes. And we are happy at their enthusiasm and acceptance to be a part of history.”

A successful model c*m actor, Gbenro, is one of the more popular acts in Multichoice-sponsored Tinsel soap. The Biology graduate of the Benue State University has also featured in several home videos including ‘The Wages,’ ‘Twisted Throne,’ ‘Gbomo Gbomo Express’ and ‘10 Days in Suncity’ among others. Married to fellow thespian, Osas Ighodaro, with whom he has a baby girl, Gbenro says he dreams of a day “When I’d have contributed significantly to the arts and entertainment industry globally to earn me a spot in the Guinness Book of World Records or the Hollywood Walk of Fame and when the characters I play come alive and begin to transform lives, and significantly create an impact on society and popular culture in general.”

One of the breakout stars of Kannywood who have successfully transited to mainstream Nollywood is Rahama Sadau, a Business Administration graduate of the Kaduna Polytechnic. Crowned “Face of Kannywood” at the City People Entertainment Awards 2016, Rahama has featured in popular soaps like Super Story, MTV’s Shuga – Season 6 and ‘Sons of the Caliphate’ while playing prominent roles in movies like ‘Ajuwaya,’ ‘Tatu’ and ‘The Accidental Spy.’

She says, “In addition to acting, I also produce my own movies, one of which is the recently completed ‘Rariya.’ Furthermore, I participate in charity and humanitarian work and visit Internally Displaced People’s Camps regularly to offer support and aid through my charitable initiative ‘Ray of Hope’, which I launched in 2016.

I am very ambitious and since my first appearance on screens, I have worked hard to build the ‘Rahama Sadau’ brand.”
