Uzee Usman is a professional Nigerian actor who focuses on acting in Hausa movies. Though he acts in other movies with different languages aside from Hausa but I guess he finds joy in acting Kannywood movies.

We could attribute his love for Kannywood movies to the fact that he grew up in the Northern region of Nigeria. If I could remember, all the Hausa films I have watched and enjoyed when I was younger, I would always encounter his face.

I often asked my mum questions such as “Who is this actor? Where is he from? Can I know more about him?” Even my mum was surprised because she couldn’t believe I would end up loving his style of acting but though she herself didn’t know much about him. The only thing she told me was his name which is Uzee Usman.
