Nollywood actress, Jemima Osunde has come out to share a piece of advice she recently received from a taxi driver.

She recently revealed this via her social media page, and Nigerians have been reacting.

According to her, she only talked about relocating abroad as a Nigerian lady and the driver supported it, saying there is no money in Nigeria.

She added that the driver, however, warned that she should get married before travelling because husbands are scarce in western countries.

Her words, “I don’t know how we got here but my taxi driver is presently advising me to relocate but make sure I get married before I leave. No money in Nigeria but no husband abroad. bruhh!”


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.
