He recently had his say via his social media page, and Nigerians have been reacting.
According to him, young Nigerians must be careful with how they treat people because not every old person is actually enjoying longevity.
Kanayo added that God intentionally preserves some people’s lives to punish them for the wrong they have done in their youth.
His words, “Be careful what you do at your youthful age or when you are in public, office etc. You will pay for it. it’s just a matter of time…”
“Do you think everybody who is old has longevity in his lineage? I think otherwise. Some people are kept by God to serve out their punishment of what they did when they were younger.”
“When you see some old men around you, don’t think it’s longevity. God is punishing them for what they did to humanity, to people’s wives when they were reigning. Be careful of what you do when you are within the ages of 25 and 45.”
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.
