Nollywood actress, Nkechi Blessing Sunday has come out to say that she is still receiving advances from men despite her messy breakup from her ex-partner, Opeyemi Falegan. She recently shared a screenshot via her Instagram page, and Nigerians have been reacting.
In the chat, the man proposed marriage to her and told her to forget about Nigerian men because they will keep breaking her heart, whereas he is ready to pour all his love on her.
It read, “Hi Nkechi.”
“Since you’ve divorced your Nigerian man. Marry me and move to Gambia with me or better still move to the UK with me, and forget about these Nigerian men, they won’t stop breaking your heart. Try another country, come live with me in the UK, experience new life.”
Come to me and I’ll take good care of you.”
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.
