Baba Ijesha

Nollywood actor, Baba Ijesha has been convicted of sexually assaulting 14-year-old foster daughter of comedienne Princess, by an Ikeja Special Offences Court.

The actor was recently convicted of indecent treatment of a child, s*xual assault, and attempted s*xual assault in a 2-hour judgement, and Nigerians have been reacting.

He was however been discharged and acquitted of count one and count six, which were: sexual assault by penetration and attempted sexual assault by penetration.

Justice Oluwatoyin Taiwo who revealed that the prosecution failed to prove beyond reasonable doubt that Baba Ijesha is guilty of all the charges against him, sentenced him to 16 years imprisonment.

WOW.

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.
