Kannywood Scene also lists a few awards that were not on the original list: Sai dai Mika’ilu Gidigo ya ce duk da yake taurarin fina-finan Kannywood na iya sauya alakar masu zabe amma masu kada kuri’a za su zabi mutumin da suke ganin yana da cika alkawari ne kawai.

Zazzabi ya kama masoya, hsusa ciwo mai zafi. Indeed it is when Sani complains about a fever that Mansura suggests he go for a medical check-up—a checkup during which he tests positive for HIV.
