Meet/See The List of Hausa Actors, Actresses, Directors, Producers…

kanny The Hausa-language cinema, also known as Hausa Cinema or Kannywood is the largest film industry in Northern Nigeria. It is mainly based in Kano.

Like its people, the film-makers in Nigeria are divided largely along regional, and marginally ethnic and religious, lines. Thus, there are distinct film industries – each seeking to portray the concern of the particular section and ethnicity it represents. Although the films produced in the South mostly use English, the use of Pidgin-English, a creole form of English developed in the south has made southern films largely unattractive. The few ones rendered in the local language also hardly attracts much attention

Kannywood is the sobriquet for the Hausa language cinema. It is a part of the larger Nigerian cinema, known as Nollywood, which includes other production centres producing films in many other Nigerian languages.

The name “Kannywood” is a portmanteau derived from Kano and Hollywood, the center of the American film industry.

“Kannywood” has origins in the 1990s, when Sunusi Shehu of Tauraruwa Magazine created the term Kannywood and then it became the popular reference term for the industry.
