Kannywood Guild of Artistes, the umbrella body of northern based movie actors, has reacted to the leaked nude video of one of its members Maryam Booth, which went viral last weekend.
In an interview granted with Daily Trust, the Chairman of Kannywood Guild of Artistes Alhassan Kwalle expressed that Maryam Booth won’t be banned from the movie industry over the leaked nude video.
He revealed the video was not released intentionally or for pornographic content, but as a tool of blackmail.
Kwalle also stated that two suspects linked to the nude video leak are currently being interrogated and the actress won’t be pushed into a spot of taking the fall for it.
“Everyone knows that the video showing Matyam Booth was mischievously taken to blackmail her, not that she was doing a film or sort.
“She tried to take action about it immediately but the guy that did it acted as if he had deleted the video and for over three years he has been using that to extort money from her under threat that he will release the video until he eventually released it on Friday.
“Recently, he called and said he wants to take his mother to the hospital and that she should give him money but she refused; that was why he decided to release the nude video”
