Nollywood and Kannywood fans all over Nigeria were surprised to see that Nigerian superstar ALIYU NUHU dad’s was a Christian. He passed away on Monday and was buried yesterday in Gombe.
Many people in the industry didn’t know much about Ali Nuhu’s family background. It was surprising as they saw posters from the burial of Late Hon. Emmanuel Nuhu Paloma who passed away at 79. He was former Chairman of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Gombe.
The Governor of Gombe State paid his respect to the family of Ali Nuhu and so are many of his fans across Nigeria.
Nigeria started as a Kannywood actor before transcending into a Nollywood Star and he has acted many movies both in Nollywood and Kannywood.
Most of Ali Nuhu fans, all over the country, that NEWISSUES speak to were surprised that his father is a Christian. Agility Onwurah, former Chairman, Actor’s Guild of Nigeria, Abuja, who personally know Ali Nuhu very well said he had no idea. “This type of diversity in one family is very important.”
Kayode Adden (Marx) who acted with Ali Nuhu in “Son Aljannah Duniya” says he never discussed Ali Nuhu’s background as it never came up. “But being from Gombe, it’s not surprising. We have a lot of indigenous people from Gombe who are Christians.”
Man on social media are surprised too.
