Nigeria: My Film Was Released By Mistake - Sani Danja

Kano — The popular Hausa film actor Sani Musa Danja has explained the circumstances in which he released his embattled film "GUDALIYA', saying that the film was not released in Kano state but in a neighbouring country.

Danja said "Before our film went through screening, we have already printed five thousand copies done by somebody we owed some money, thinking that the film would go through screening successfully. And after the film was censored, we printed about forty five thousand copies which we released in Nigeria. And later, we released the uncensored film in a neighboring country. I don't know how the censorship board got the uncensored film that was released at the neighboring country".

He denied that he was bragging due to his connection with the presidency, saying that his connection with the presidency made him to be a law abiding citizen.

"We are part of this government, we cannot do anything to sabotage the efforts of the government towards development of the state", he said.

"I am calling on my teeming fans to take this as an act of God. And I am not alone appearing before the tribunal, we are three, but my name was mentioned alone in all the media".
