In an interview with Daily Trust, Ali Nuhu disclosed that he met his wife, Maimuna, on the set of the now-classic Hausa movie, ‘Wasila’. He said;
“I was working on set, in the year 2000 when I saw her walk into the house we were shooting in, and I jokingly said to my colleagues Ishaq Sidi Ishaq and Hajara Usman, that I have seen my wife-to-be. One thing led to another, and we got talking. We had an understanding, and two days later I asked the producer of the movie, Yakubu Lere, who is her relative, that I would like to meet her again. He arranged a meeting, and we clicked immediately.”
He further disclosed that his wife has been his major support system in the movie industry.
