Nollywood actress, Uchenna Nnanna has come out to beg Nigerians to quit being pessimistic about Nigeria.

She recently revealed this via a viral clip, and Nigerians have been reacting.

According to her, citizens must know that there is lots of power in the tongue, so we have to stop prophesying negativity about the country.

Uchenna added that she believes Nigeria will be great someday because nothing is impossible.

Her words, “When I hear people use the words like Nigeria will never be well again, It’s not good. There’s power in the tongue… Let’s stop using that word ‘Nigeria will never be well again, Nothing will work in Nigeria’. Please if you’re one of the people that use such words, stop it! There’s power in the tongue. Someday this country will be Good, please please if there’s anybody around you using that word “Nigeria will not be well again”, cation them, tell them not to use that word.”


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.
