He recently revealed this via his social media page, and Nigerians have been reacting.
According to him, it is a lifelong dream he has nurtured since he was in primary school, and he is glad to have achieved it finally.
Spiff added that his father had always wanted all his kids to further their education to at least the masters level, so it is also a dream come true for him.
His words, “So over the weekend, i was more than glad to achieve one of my life long dream that i’ve nurtured since i was in primary school . My dad had always let us know then that he wanted all his kids to further their education to at least the master level and as the first born, i was determined to set a good example for my siblings.”
“Appart from Him , I’m grateful to the Almighty God for giving me the grace to fulfill that dream. I’m also grateful to Mrs Busola Tejumola for ensuring that i had the time to fulfill it in my busy work schedule . I want to thank Dr @itshelenpaul for not just motivating me but also pointing me in the right direction to achieve it and finally Chief Olusegun Obasanjo for his encouragements and Mentorship.”
“Thanks to everyone for the congratulatory messages. i can guarantee you guys that i won’t be stopping here.”
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.
