PHOTOS: Some Kannywood Actresses Who Married Their Fellow Actors In The Movie Industry

Kannywood, also known as Hausa film cinema, is a movie industry located in Kano State, the Northern part of Nigeria. The industry is filled with many talented actors, actresses, movie producers as well as directors.

In Kannywood, some actresses got married to their colleagues, while others married women outside the industry. In this article, I am going to share photos and a brief story of some female actors who tied the knot with their fellow actors.

1. Mansurah and Sani Danja
