In early October 2016, Rahama Sadau was reportedly banned from the Hausa film industry (Kannywood) by the Motion Picture Practitioners Association of Nigeria (MOPPAN) due to her performance in a music video.[4] MOPPAN argued that the "hugging and cuddling" in the video was offensive.[4] Conservative Muslim clerics have accused the Kannywood film industry of corrupting people's values.[4] Rahama Sadau claimed not to know any other person who had been banned in Kannywood, except herself.[5]

However, on 8 October 2016, she was reported to be featuring in a movie series on EbonyLife TV.[6]
