Kannywood actress Hadiza Aliyu, popularly known as Hadiza Gabon, says the film industry has taught her to be kind and compassionate.
Hadiza Gabon says finding herself in the film industry has given her a better understanding of the God-given ideas for women, which she says have helped her a lot in life.
“I can say the realization of the importance of showing care, love and affection between people and the benefit of doing that has been one of the greatest discoveries I have ever made in my life and it was due to film making.
“One of the greatest things that bring me happiness and take away my worries and pain is to put a smile on the faces of the vulnerable. I discovered that we make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.
“It is very significant to note that, a little effort that someone makes which at the end may result in making a great difference to the lives of people, will be remembered as an act of righteous and good deed.
“We should always try to the best of our ability to uplift the lives of the poor and needy among ourselves. The industry opened my eyes to this and that is why I have no regret being an actress,” she said.
The actress, who made her 2009 debut in the critically acclaimed film Artabu, said she is happy with her acting career.
She said she was thankful to God for her achievements in the film industry as well as being an ambassador for many businesses in Nigeria.
Hadiza, who was born in Libreville, Gabon, is a man known for her generosity and openness.
Records show the Kannywood actress has long set up a fund to support the poor and show them care.
“In 2016, I founded a charitable organization called Hadiza Aliyu Gabon (HAG) Foundation. The foundation was founded with the aim of improving the lives of ordinary people by providing help in their educational and healthcare sectors as well as food security in the little way that I can,” she said.
