Nollywood actresses Tonto Dikeh and Chioma Ifemeludike are currently at loggerheads.

This is coming amid the differences in their approach to seeking justice for Sylvester Oromoni, and Nigerians have been reacting.

Tonto Dikeh had called on Nigerians to avoid distractions in the form of conspiracy theorists and focus on seeking justice for Sylvester.

Reacting, Ifemeludike simply said anyone coming up with conspiracy theories surrounding Sylvester’s death must be held accountable and seen as a co-conspirator.

Also responding, Tonto called Chioma a “Z list actor,” but Ife immediately replied saying everyone was once a Z list actor.


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 โ€“ 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.
