Actress Halima Abubakar Interview

Nice Responses to the interview questions....





Background

I am from Kogi State, but I grew up in Kano. It was a very peaceful and lovely place while I was growing up. I remember being young and having a lot of friends and we always played football together. I was a stubborn child, so I broke a lot of rules.



Education


I had my primary and secondary school education in Kano. I also attended Bayero University, Kano, where I studied Sociology. I have a diploma in Social Policy and Administration from the same university.



Acting

I first came to Lagos at the age of 14 and I returned to Kano after a year because I did not get any acting job. My parents weren’t initially in support of my acting career, but with the kinds of movies I did then, they gave me their support, and now, they are my biggest fans.


Breakthrough roles

My first major role was given to me by Ifeanyi Ikpoenyi, aka Mr Hollywood, in the movie, Gangster Paradise. Other movies that brought me into the limelight include White Hunters, Ladies Men, among others. My humanitarian activities also helped to make me more popular. Above all, I credit God for my success.



Kannywood


I have a lot of friends in Kannywood, and I’m getting ready to feature in a Hausa language movie produced by my friends. I think they are doing well, and I support them totally. We are one Nollywood under the same Actors Guild of Nigeria, so it does not matter what part of the country they are in.


Personal productions

I have produced eight movies, and the first one was produced in 2013. They include Mistresses, Hard Way to Freedom, How I was Raped, Amina, and I have a TV series on the way. I have never been raped so the movie, How I was Raped, is not a true life story. I faced a lot of challenges while shooting those movies but I don’t want to dwell on them. I made money from some of the movies, and I have also had issues with marketers. It does not matter how I get money to fund my movies.


Sexual harassment

Yes, I’ve experienced harassment; it comes with the job. However, I still see some of those people and I don’t judge them based on what they did. I just feel that human beings have different characters, and that is theirs.



Sugar daddies

No. I’m not a child and things like that are for those coming up in the movie industry.

Other interests

I am a movie producer, farmer, and United Nations youth ambassador. I also run the Halima Abubakar Foundation. I suffered a lot in life and I had to beg a lot of people for food, money and clothes. I know how embarrassing and tough it can be because some people don’t like associating with persons they feel are not up to their level. That’s why I decided to contribute my own little quota to the society by making my life positive.

Fashion

It means being comfortable and being you at all times. I love gowns because they are free and comfortable. However, I’m also starting to develop a liking for jeans. I cannot wear anything that is not comfortable and ladylike.


Instagram

I have been getting attention for 15 years, so deleting my Instagram page wasn’t because I wanted to be noticed. Instagram is not my father’s company; we are just there to associate with our fans. If I decide to take a break, I’ll take it, and if I want to come back, I’ll do the same. It should not be a problem to anybody. I think people take social media too seriously. I needed the break, and it was a personal decision.


Marriage

There is no pressure from anywhere. It will happen at the right time and when it is supposed to happen.


Relaxation

I like going to the beach, and singing at karaoke spots. I also love to read as well as go horseback riding. I read only inspirational and motivational books; I don’t read novels anymore.


Relationship


That is personal. I no longer want to share anything about my personal life because it is safer that way. However, I admire intelligence in people. If you’re not intelligent, I can’t talk to you even if you’re a fan. I don’t like to stay in a place where nothing useful is being discussed.

Why bring her name here,except you have another motive of doing this cos I don't see any use of this

Kogi people are everywhere ,so are other tribes. If you travel to a state and you don't see your town's men there,then go back to your root and ask questions
