This is the amazing world of Ali Nuhu, whose foray into Nollywood started from the Hausa films genre. His first film Abin'sirrine (It's a secret) was in 1999 after he graduated from the University of Jos, with a degree in Geography. ”I have always wanted to act, even when I was a small boy. I knew I would act someday but how it would start was unknown to me,” he offers.
Luck smiled on him when he read an advertisement. ”It was about an audition and they needed cast for a film. That was after my graduation but the film that shot me to limelight was Dijangala, which bagged an award of the Best Hausa Film at the Zuma Films Festival in Abuja. Though a re-make of the old Dijangala, it was what I needed to be hot in the Hausa film market. Since then, I have been in the Hausa genre of Nollywood before Wetin Dey?”
