Nollywood actor and director, Omogoriola Hassan is in hot soup for parading himself as the Oba of Imobi, in Ijebu-East Local Government Area of Ogun State.

Recall that the moviestar recently received congratulatory messages on Facebook for this title that is not really his.

This action has caught the eye of the Ogun State House of Assembly and they have threatened to arrest the actor if he fails to appear before it on August 17, 2021.

The committee led by Hon. Bolanle Ajayi added that Goriola must respond to a petition written against him by a group known as the Imobi Descendants’ Union.


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.
