NIGERIAN HAUSA MOVIES GANI GAKA
So what are the successes or what do you want to achieve or what did you achieved so far? Are you still in that position? Do you think they are going to be much better or what? There are so many things that are very unique in GANI GAKA, like the costumes, this is something that we specialized on, we are best at it costumes something that is in the nature of our company. I think these are the reason that dragged him Yakubu Muhammad to acting. May be a boy would have his own room; a girl would talk to her mother any how she wanted, a kind of westernized something if you like.
I know they do have movies that belong to us, but most of their movies portray these kinds of things. Somebody can afford to buy very sophisticated equipment, very nice equipment, but for you to get someone that would at least know how to operate and mount it properly this is where we are having problem. That is the uniqueness, if you wear it today next day you wear another one. We are not competing with our other counterparts, but trying to prove that Kannywood has reached a certain level of producing standard and qualitative movies to global standard. May be a boy would have his own room; a girl would talk to her mother any how she wanted, a kind of westernized something if you like. Many people want gown suits, I want to throw something nice for people to copy. You know sometimes people even prepare to buy the fairly used than the new ones. Are you still in that position?
If you look at the way Kannywood are using modern facilities and equipments, what can you say is the level of Kannywood in terms of development compared to Nollywood? Sometimes you have to go extra miles to do something that will suit so many people that you are not in touch with, is very important.
This is not something that belongs to us. With these they make more money. In just five minutes of a song you can send a message and everybody would understand it. You know once you made a movie you want to do another one and the one you are going to do must be or has to be better than the previous because, it is the kind of way in which people rated whether you are improving or not.
Now when you are into it, later you changed or switched to scriptwriting, directing, cinematographer or any kind of guilt in the movie industry, you will communicate with the actors. Anybody that comes to the industry is the actors that inspired him. Therefore, a person that wrote a script may be in a better position to give what he thinks is right.
Sir, can you mention the Nollywood movies you have featured in? I think these are the reason that dragged him Yakubu Muhammad to acting. There are some that the premier have already started, everywhere. When you writes a script and gives it to somebody, his understanding and perception of the script moviees be different from you the writer and if the third person read it, he too would have a different thought. You are top kannywood actor and a musician as well, how do you manage to achieve success hausq both?
What can you said about that? I even heard that they sell rights — American right, UK right, Asian right and more. Somebody can afford to buy very sophisticated equipment, very nice equipment, but for you to get someone that would at least know how to operate and mount it properly this is where we are having problem.
So that is the reason why I ventured into Nollywood movies. movids
I think we have one of the best directors in the world, is also an actor at the same time, he even writes scripts. Somebody that writes song always have a kind of idea, how he is going to sell the idea to the people is something that can nigeriwn everything in a kind of message — somebody would write a nigerisn book trying to pass a single message, while a musician can pass same message in a five minutes.
I know they do have movies that belong to us, but most of their movies portray these kinds of things. We just want to make sure that it is a qualitative one and maintain the standard at the same time. Ahhh the thing is, now we have a kind of more or less like a global world. If you are writing a script, once you pick your pen and paper you will start imagining that so so actor will fit so so role, or vaka need somebody that is new or what have you.
Thank you very much. Many people want gown gakw, I want to throw something nice for people to copy.
Gradually doing that may be when you are directing a movie the actors might not satisfy you or may not give you what you really want. Well, uhm I featured in so many Nollywood movies or English movies and very soon I think most of them will start coming out one by one.
But the difference between, mostly, though I know the Nollywood do have a setting that is a kind of local setting and all that, though is English but mostly you see in the Nollywood is not original — they talk like oyinbo they just talk like how the Whiteman do, even the kind of structure in the family would be a kind of a Whiteman setting.
The same thing may happen to the director and the actor as well. That is the uniqueness, if you wear it today next day you wear another one. It has been announced on twitter, facebook and other communication networks, there are some that are already in the cinemas. So it is not going to be something of Kannywood kano alone.

Gani Gaka – Kannywood Scene
The marketers tend to like look at what I was doing and said may be I am gonna make it in some part of the movie thing. Sorry, your blog cannot share posts by email. Our movies are still on the process. I only need a little to add and then as you can all see, anywhere in the part of the world most musicians are very good actors. This time around people would be seeing a lot of English-English. I just want people to copy from it. May be a boy would have his own room; a girl would talk to her mother any how she wanted, a kind of westernized something if you like.
Why because we are not just for profit making, but to project the language, to project our own culture, project Hausa community and movie and language at the same time to spread it to other part of the world whereby people would appreciate how we do it. I think the problem we are facing is not affording it, but the people to handle it, the professionalism, you have to get the professionals who can operate it successfully.
As someone who experienced acting in both Kannywood and Nollywood what are the differences or what can you say the difference between Kannywood and the Nollywood industry?
So what are the successes or what do you want to achieve or what did you achieved so far? We are not competing with our other counterparts, but trying to prove that Kannywood has reached a certain level of producing standard and qualitative movies to global standard.

So Nollywood have these advantages. Also the time taking in shooting a Nollywood movies and a Kannywood movies differs, though sometimes we do have some kind of relation in terms of directing and all that, but then we still have a sense of belonging, this is why we are trying to bridge all these gaps.
I also wish my fans success wherever they are. So, all gkaa kind of things can make somebody moves from this direction to another direction, it can make a script writer to became a director. Thank you so much! Those people that buy rights is because they understand the language, though we have Hausa movies fans even gxka America we have Nigerians in diasporas, they cherish us, they want to watch our movies, most especially if they are outside the country because they miss home and the only thing that reminds them home is our movies, so that they watch their environment and hear their language and so many things.
What do you think inspired him to acting now?
