Nollywood actor, Kenneth Okonkwo has come out to say that the worst thing that could happen to a relationship is lack of communication. He recently had his say via his social media page, and Nigerians have been reacting.
According to him, he can only urge people to end their relationships if they no longer communicate their feelings to each other to avoid emotional, psychological and mental torture.
He added that if your relationship has gotten to that point where couples no longer communicate their feelings with each other, it is best to end things.
His words, “The worst possible thing that can happen to any relationship is for partners to second-guess each other due to a break-down in or lack of communication.
It’s true that talking about issues could be exhausting, especially if your partner is someone who doesn’t listen or someone who doesn’t put in the efforts to change things.”
“But I have to say this: If your relationship has gotten to that point where you no longer communicate your feelings to each other, because you think that doing so is a waste of time. Please, quit it. It’s better to liberate yourself from the emotional, psychological and mental torture than to remain stuck in it, because surely, what you have going is not a relationship.
It’s perpetual suffering.
Good afternoon beloved fans.”
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.
