Safara’u Kwaa Casain, a prominent screen name for Hausa actress Safiyya Yusuf, has accused her friends and family of releasing her naked video, which went viral on social media.
The actress, who was fired from the popular Arewa24 film series, claimed she is not a lesbian and that she has never shared anyone any of her naked photos or films in an interview with BBC Hausa on Tuesday, August 30.
Safara’u acknowledged taping herself in the interview while nude, but she insisted she had no intention of sharing it.
“70 per cent of ladies nowadays have such types of videos on their phones. It is just done for fun, not to go on social media and many ladies do that. I can’t specifically say the person that released the video, but all I know is that it must be one of my friends and associates that take my phone. Because I give them my phone.
“I was deeply shocked when I saw the video and how it went viral all over the world. In fact, when I received the news I could not stand on my feet. I experienced a lot of challenges, people were mocking me. There was a time that someone even stoned me, all because of that video. I had to spend three months indoors without going near the gate of our house.”
The actress also revealed that she almost deactivated her social media accounts over the number of insults she got from people but she was later advised by her parents and relatives to take it as destiny.
