Aisha Tsamiya Speaking to PREMIUM TIMES

Speaking to PREMIUM TIMES, Aisha Aliyu Tsamiya had this to say, “When I finally made up my mind to start acting, I never thought I could be this famous in a short time. After my role in Dakin Amarya, I became more prominent to producers and fans of Kannywood. I can no longer walk freely in my area and even markets in major cities in the North; people gather to chant my names.”

She said on the sets of SO and Dakin Amarya, the two movies that made her famous, her strategy was just to follow the directives given. “I was like let me just follow my director’s instruction and do my best and my best turned out to be the very best,” she said. “When I watched the film after it was released, I was like am I the one who was displaying like that. It was indeed a marvelous outing for me in Dakin Amarya, and also acting beside Ali Nuhu and Halima Ateteh who are big stars in the industry.

“SO was one of favourite movies (to act in). Starring alongside one of Kannywood’s best, Adam Zango, it was indeed a classic. I was so consumed by the real nature of the script and at a point I thought everything was real.”

I gate-crashed into acting and I’m not regretting – Aisha Tsamiya

Aisha Aliyu Tsamiya is one of many Kannywood actresses that got their nicknames from a movie they feature prominently. Surprisingly, she got her nick from her first movie, ‘Tsamiya’ which was produced by Habibu Yaro in 2011. Actually, her elder sister was the one penciled down to feature in the film that made her popular. In this interview with ALIYU ASKIRA in Kano, the 25-year-old actress says even though she gate-crashed into acting profession, she never regrets doing so.

How I joined Kannywood, I remember it is through AGM Bashir who was a friend to my elder sister then. The story surrounding it actually was when they were shooting a film at Daula Hotel and the name of the film was ‘Tsamiya’, then my elder sister, who was billed to feature in the film, did not make it. So the producer, Habibu Yaro asked me to step in for my sister and play the lead role. To cut the long story short, that was how I started acting and the name of the film, ‘Tsamiya’ has ever since become part of my name.

Aisha Aliyu Tsamiya: Well, that is why some of us always shun press interviews. Somebody even accused me that in 2015, I insulted former president Goodluck Jonathan on my instagram. Now I have changed it to ‘Real Aisha Aliyu Tsamiya’ whatever you see on the new facebook or instagram is from me. So I will not talk about twins or not twins.

But all in all, I was extremely happy to feature alongside accepted and popular actors and actresses like Ali Nuhu, Halima Atete, Tanimu Akawo, Al-ameen Buhari and the rest. Let me tell you, since then I see myself transformed into the class of A-grade actors and actresses.

What do you hate in life?

My saddest moment was when my grandmother died, while my mother is what I like most in my life. I also like eating rice and beans and pepper. While about weather, I like cold weather, about car, I like Vibe Matrix and that is all about me.
