He recently revealed this via a viral clip on social media, and Nigerians have been reacting.
According to him, he is speaking from experience, and he also knows a friend whose growth was stunted because of the excess family weight he started carrying early in life.
Toka added that he is not telling anyone to be stingy, but Nigerians should make sure they are strong enough to assist others before parting with money.
His words, “Family problem, friends problem will always be there with us. But you need to grow to a certain level before you carry load, so it won’t hinder how tall you’re supposed to be.”
“If you don’t plan well, your friends, your family, they will continually take from you, you will not get up that ladder.”
“I’m not advocating for you to be stingy but be smart.”
“If you don’t plan well, they will laugh at you tomorrow. The same people will gather and say, ‘I don’t know what he does with money. If you know the kind of money that came into my brother’s hand, but now look at him’. But they’re the same people that were ealing the money small small.”
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.
