The actor, Adam Zango announced on his Instagram page (@adam_a_zango) this evening his retirement from the Hausa movie industry, Kannywood.
The post which he titled Special Announcement was written in Hausa. When translated, it reads: ” I am writing this message to you all fans, producers, actors, directors and to also beg that you forgive me, from today I have quit acting. I will now only concentrate on singing and producing songs.”
The multiple-award winning actor did not give further explanations on his decision. His close aides, however, told PREMIUM TIMES that the actor told them he was suspending acting and not quitting completely.
“I read the story on Instagram and I am still in shock. I tried to call him but could not get through. Adam is an actor that we cannot bear to miss. We pray he changes his decision and returns,” Kannywood actress Ummah Shehu said.
Adam’s decision to quit the Hausa film industry came about a month after the expulsion of Rahama Sadau from Kannywood. The actress was expelled for featuring in a romantic musical video.
