2Face’s baby mama, Pero has served his wife, Annie Idibia a lawsuit notice. Pero’s lawyers recently made this known via a letter addressed to the accused, and Nigerians have been reacting.
In the lawsuit notice dated November 10, Pero’s lawyers referenced Annie’s Instagram outburst and the audiotape which went viral weeks ago in which she alleged that her husband, 2Face packed his bags and came to America to see her (Pero) and his other kids.
The lawyers added that the false allegations misrepresents facts and portrayed Pero as an individual with loose morals, plus Annie further engaged in malicious and libelous online publication which subjected Pero and her kids to online harassment and bullying.
We wait to see how this will pan out.
Nollywood is a sobriquet that originally referred to the Nigerian film industry. The origin of the term dates back to the early 2000s, traced to an article in The New York Times. Due to the history of evolving meanings and contexts, there is no clear or agreed-upon definition for the term, which has made it a subject to several controversies.
The origin of the term “Nollywood” remains unclear; Jonathan Haynes traced the earliest usage of the word to a 2002 article by Matt Steinglass in the New York Times, where it was used to describe Nigerian cinema.
Charles Igwe noted that Norimitsu Onishi also used the name in a September 2002 article he wrote for the New York Times. The term continues to be used in the media to refer to the Nigerian film industry, with its definition later assumed to be a portmanteau of the words “Nigeria” and “Hollywood”, the American major film hub.
Film-making in Nigeria is divided largely along regional, and marginally ethnic and religious lines. Thus, there are distinct film industries – each seeking to portray the concern of the particular section and ethnicity it represents.
