Rahama Sadau is an award-winning Nigerian actress, model, producer, and media personality who gained prominence when she joined Kannywood, the Hausa-language movie industry, in 2013, starring in her debut film, Gani Ga Wane. She has since appeared in a number of Hausa-language and English-language films and series, including Sons of the Caliphate and its sequel War: Wrath and Revenge, MTV Shuga, Chief Daddy 2 and Up North. 

In 2016, she was invited to star in the Hollywood film America King by Akon. In addition to acting, she also produces her own movies, including Mati A Zazzau, Rariya, and Dan Iya. As one of the few Kannywood actors to break into mainstream Nollywood, Rahama’s talent and versatility have earned her a significant following in Nigeria and beyond.

“I am thrilled to be doing this show, and even more so with my sisters who are simply my favourite people in the world,” says Rahama, who is also the executive producer of the series. “This show presents a unique opportunity for me to share a more personal side of my life with viewers and my fans. I am grateful to Showmax for providing a platform to tell our stories, and I can’t wait for everyone to join us on this incredible adventure.”

Set against the background of strong religious and cultural beliefs, the debut season will see the sisters reunite in a new home and city – a move that uncovers many secrets about their family. Each episode will take viewers on a captivating journey of the personal lives of these young, northern Nigerian women as they juggle the demands of fame, family and everything in between. 

Sadau Sisters is part of the exciting content slate Showmax is set to release for the relaunch of the Showmax app on 12 February 2024. Other titles set for release include the highly anticipated second season of AMVCA-nominated Flawsome, romcom The Counsellor, and Freemen, a documentary on the celebrated Igbo Apprenticeship System. 

Sadau Sisters premieres 12 February on Showmax, with new episodes showing every Tuesday.
