Labarina season 5 aired on 2nd September 2022. The series has been well received by viewers and critics alike, with the acting of the lead actress Nafisa Abdullahi particularly praised.
Labarina is a Kannywood series centered around a girl named Sumayya, played by Nafisa Abdullahi, who fell in love with Mahmud, a guy who helped her out in her time of need. Gratitude gradually turned to love.
Her father was never in the picture, and her mother’s dream has always been for her to get a degree. With admission into the university, she met Presido, a Minister’s son who fell head over heels for her. Her heart was sole with Mahmud, so she didn’t even glance at him.
But Presido, like all spoiled kids, couldn’t take no for an answer and be willing to go to any length to get her, even going as far as beating up Mahmud.
Then came Lukman, who also likes her and even assisted in getting them a house, whom she didn’t give a chance.
Mahmud then met Laila. He has always dreamed of being a musician but couldn’t afford to have his vocal cords surgically altered. Laila won him over with a promise to pay for his surgery as she was a millionaire’s daughter and could afford it. She even bought him a car to prove her affections.
Mahmud dumped Sumayyah for riches and promises of fame, but Sumayya still clung to the hope that he would change his mind. When the talk of his marriage with Laila became serious and investigations were made, it was discovered that he was born out of wedlock.
Laila’s father refuses to accept the union.
With no one to blame but himself, as he had lost both Laila and even Sumayyah, he fell into depression and started drinking and mingling with the wrong crowd. Sumayya, on the other hand, was discovered by Sarkin waka by chance, who could see she was talented, and he helped make her a star.
After her rise to success, she made it her mission to find Mahmud because he left home and hasn’t been heard from since then. She eventually found him and did her best to rehabilitate him. He eventually died after learning she no longer loved him. After learning this, Sumayya kidnaps herself, while Presido and Lukman look for her and eventually find her. Her face was badly damaged because of the burns she received during the rescue.
This tiny detail coincided with Nafisa Abdullahi’s disagreement with the show’s producer, which eventually resulted in her leaving the show. She has since been replaced by Fati Washa, another capable A-list actress. She filled in the big shoes well from the reviews after the trailer.
Season 5 of Labarina also promises to let us see who finally wins over Sumayya, between Presido (who still seemed adamant about winning her over and even threatened to murder her father) and Lukman.
Will Sumayya’s mother finally let her meet her father?
What extreme length will Presido go to win Sumayya’s affections?
And what character is Saratu Daso playing?
We hope to see these important questions answered in the exciting new season. Labarina season 5 will likely be filled with drama and will certainly not disappoint when it continues releasing every Friday by 9:00 pm on Arewa 24. You can also check out Alaqa review, another exciting Hausa series.
PS: Oh, and Presido’s father has a heart attack.
