Nollywood actor, Yul Edochie has come out to dish out an advice to Nigerian youths over some of their activities online.

He recently had his say via his social media page, and Nigerians have been reacting.

According to him, he has nothing against Nigerian youths being allowed to express themselves online, however, insulting people every second on social media won’t get them where they should be.

Yul added that even if the government has not done well, there’s so much youths can achieve if they focus on self-improvement.

His words, “I have nothing against Nigerian youths. Just trying to wake them up. Catching cruise & insulting people every second won’t get you where you want to be. Yes the Govt hasn’t done well but there’s a lot you can achieve if you focus on self improvement. Whatever you focus on grows.”


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.
