I’ve been single for a long time - Actress Hauwa Allahbura lailasnews 3


I was born in Lagos to a para-military family. My dad was a Customs officer; so, we moved around quite a lot – from Kano to Abuja and even Badagry. I had an interesting upbringing because I moved around different states and was opportune to meet different people on my adventure. As a kid, I was not easily oppressed; I was in charge of things and could not be pressured into what I didn’t believe in. My family still calls me, “ready-made” because even as a kid, I had big dreams and ambitions.


For my elementary education, I attended three schools which were Crescent International School, Lagos; Crescent International School, Kano; and French International School, Badagry. I attended Police Secondary School, Minna, Niger State; and Federal Government College, Ilorin, Kwara State, for my secondary education.

I graduated from Nasarawa State University with a degree in History and International Studies. After that, I attended other institutions such as London Film Academy; New York State University, and Montana State University.


Ironically, I didn’t care to be a filmmaker as a child. I had one ambition and that was to be Oprah Winfrey. I wanted to have a show and change lives just the way Oprah did. As I grew older, I started to find myself and things changed. I set out to be a presenter but discovered acting.

Along the way, I decided to add film producing to my credentials. I am now in a place where I want to be because film means a lot more to me now than it did at first. Now, I want to make films that will connect Nigeria to the world, and collaborate with people from other parts of Africa and other countries. I also want to understand the business side of film and filmmaking on a different level.

I wanted to join the film industry as an actor because I thought that was my calling and passion but I realised while on set that I wasn’t as happy and fulfilled as I should have been. I would hear other people talk about how happy they felt being on screen and because I didn’t have such satisfaction, I started to think that I was in the wrong profession. I did like acting but I wasn’t just crazy about it. Then, I understood that I was more excited about the business angle of filmmaking.
