Popular Hausa/Muslim actress, Safiya Yusuf explains why her nude video went viral

Prominent Hausa film actress, Safiyya Yusuf, popularly known as Safara’u Kwaa Casain has opened up on how her nude video turned viral and again affirmed that she never deliberately filmed herself to expose to any other person.

Speaking in an interview to BBC Hausa Service on Tuesday, August 30, the actress who was sanctioned over the scandal revealed that she had the support of her parents all through the brouhaha.

Saafiya firmly rebuffed insinuations in some circles that she is a lesbian on account of the nude video.

She said;

“70 per cent of ladies nowadays have such types of videos on their phones. It is just done for fun, not to go on social media and many ladies do that. I can’t specifically say the person that released the video, but all I know is that it must be one of my friends and associates that take my phone. Because I give them my phone.


“I was deeply shocked when I saw the video and how it went viral all over the world. In fact, when I received the news I could not stand on my feet. I experienced a lot of challenges, people were mocking me. There was a time that someone even stoned me, all because of that video. I had to spend three months indoors without going near the gate of our house,” Safiya Yusuf said in explaining the nude video incident.
