Portable Should Stop Talking About Me – Charles Okocha

PortableNollywood actor, Charles Okocha has jumped on Instagram to threaten Portable after the singer accused him of ripping him off some money.

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

According to Portable, Okocha collected 40 million naira from some promoters for a show/endorsement in Abuja which he was invited for, and even if the movie star paid him 5 million from the money, it is too small compared to how much Okocha got.

Reacting, Okocha revealed that he was the one that got the deal in the first place, and he only invited Portable as his guest, so he sees nothing wrong.

He added that Portable should avoid talking about him henceforth if he does not want problems.


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.
