Nollywood actress, Nkechi Blessing has come out to share the best decision she took last year. She recently had her say via her social media page, and Nigerians have been reacting.
According to her, the best thing she did last year was sell her Range Rover car to raise money to complete the house she was building, because a car is never an achievement.
Nkechi added that she is now driving the space bus she bought for her late mom.
Her words, “The best decision I made in 2021 was selling my Range Rover to complete this beauty behind me. Tnk God for the space bus I bought for my mum. Shey landlady for Dey trek by now, It’s 2022 Try set your priorities right. A car is never an achievement but a necessity,a means of transporting you from one place to another. This is my own opinion and I did not call for a debate..Choose whatever works for you pls..Just saying respectfully.”
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. However, there is the English-language film industry which is a melting pot for filmmaking and filmmakers from most of the regional industries.
