Nollywood actress, Iretiola Doyle has come out to advise people on the most important thing to take into account when deciding on who to make their next of kin. She recently revealed this via her social media page, and Nigerians have been reacting.
According to her, next of kin should not be picked based on who we want to inherit our belongings, rather, it should be based on who we trust to make life and death decisions on our behalf.
Ireti added that taking time out to decide on the right person is very key to avoid stories that touch.
Her words, “When filling the blank space for “NEXT OF KIN”, let yr first thought not be “who will inherit my stuff.”
“Let it be “who is the one person I would want making life & death decisions on my behalf should I be unable to do so for myself.” E get why.”
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.
