Nollywood actress, Sylvia Edem has come out to tell her female fans to take good advantage of their youthful age while there is still time.

Edem recently revealed that our young ones need to set their priorities right early in life before it gets too late.

According to her, even if it is okay to play once in a while, these youngsters must not forget to do the right things at its proper time.

She added that focusing on slaying for Instagram, filtering pictures, and giving false ages is a wrong priority that will affect one’s future.

Her words, “Dear ladies, if at age 25-38, you are still prioritising the wrong things, for example, twerking, slaying for the gram, deceiving yourself with filter and lying about your age when deep down you know menopause is very close.”

“Next time you see yourself prioritising the wrong things, doing school runs at 50 isn’t gonna be easy. Please do not feel attacked. While playing, remember to set your priorities right and have it at the back of your mind that you will need a hand that will help you genuinely in the future.”

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.

In 2012, it was announced that Nollywood would be celebrating its 20-year anniversary. This year marked the 20th year after the release of direct-to-video movie Living in Bondage (1992), which arguably marked the boom in the video film era. The anniversary was eventually celebrated in June 2013.

President of Actors Guild of Nigeria at the time, Ibinabo Fiberesima, admitted that Nollywood is more than 20, but gave what was considered an unconvincing statement on the reason behind the event, stating: “It’s about celebrating our own even though Nollywood is more than 20 years. It’s been long that people have been celebrating us but right now, we are celebrating ourselves and giving lots back to the society. It’s a good step we have taken especially now that the qualities of our movies have improved”.
