She recently had her say via her social media page, and Nigerians have been reacting.
According to her, she was shocked to find out that after her cleaner was rushed to a nearby hospital, the staff members there rejected her, saying they don’t accept patients with knife wounds.
Kate added that she was at the gym when this happened and only got the news when she got home.
Her words, “My cleaner was stabbed this morning at 6am on her way to work on Idowu Martins next to Mega Plaza..”
“She managed to get to a clinic nearby and was sent away that they do not treat knife wounds!”
“She is now receiving treatment at another hospital.”
“No one is safe!! No one.”
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.
