Nollywood actress, Didi Ekanem has jumped on social media to write about police harassment in Nigeria.

She recently revealed that it is very obvious that the recent #EndSARS protests changed nothing in the country.

According to her, she recently broke the law by making a one way U-turn on the road, only for 10 heavily armed task force men to point their guns at her, open her door and throw her out of the driver’s seat.

She added that she was eventually kept in the back of her car with other officers and taken to an unknown location where the officers told her they had to wait for their commander, who showed up and sexually harassed her.

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.
