Nollywood actress, Beverly Naya has come out to blast Lagos lawmaker, Moji Alli-Macaulay for her controversial submission at the Lagos state house of assembly plenary session.

The movie star recently revealed that the “kids” will not shut up or respect her because respect is earned and none of them have earned it.

According to her, it was sad to see Moji say she sees nothing wrong with a lawyer becoming a professional tailor due to a lack of job opportunities in the country.

She added that youths are between ages 18-35, so they should not be considered a child and their opinions should not be valued.

Her words, “According to that woman, I’m high on drugs and so are you guys. It is well

“We, the ‘children’ will not shut up or respect you, respect is earned and none of you have earned it!

“So someone should study law for example and then become a professional tailor/ tiler due to a lack of job opportunities and she doesn’t see anything fundamentally wrong with that? What a joke!”

“And why are all of them so eager to call grown people ‘children’? My understanding is that youths are between 18-35, so how is anyone in this age bracket considered a child? Just a failed attempt at devaluing our opinions and voice, we will not keep quiet. Change must happen!”

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.
