      • Ezii Oguibe Hmmm, infidelity! Infidelity! Infidelity; It is true that majority of men are never satisfied with what they have, but are these ladies sure they are not doing anything wrong in their matrimonial homes? Personally, I do not believe in dying in a marriage that is not working out but…..
        FUNKE AKINDELE’s own ended too quick I must say and “UCHE OGBODO” If actually she left because of her husband’s ill health, she must be a very heartless person.
        Case closedddd….lol

      • Kevin Onuma With the height of infidelity in #Nollywood these days, I think its high time a film-maker makes a Nollywood movie titled "Infidelity"; that would be centered around the lives of celebrities with failed marriages.

      This is a humorous discussion of how an African man lived with his wife for 21 years without fighting! Can men and women of today learn from this make-believe story discovered on social media? Read on...

      I visited my uncle who lives in Abuja for the weekend and he was
      telling me of how he and his wife has not fought for 21 years. I was
      surprised and asked him howcome. He replied; When my wife and I just got
      married 21 years ago Ofego, we went for honeymoon in Hawaii. While at a
      beach riding horses, my wife's horse jumped and my wife fell down. She
      got up from the ground, patted the horse's back, and said; This is your
      first time. After a while, it happened again. She patted the horse and
      said; This is your second time. The horse did it again the third time
      and she brought out a gun from her handbag and shot the horse. The
      animal died instantly. I was so shocked and shouted at her; Are you
      crazy? What is wrong with you? Why did you kill the horse? She gave me a
      strange look and said; This is your first time. Ever since then Ofego,
      we have been living happily.

        Join Nigeria Movie Network in discussing popular Nollywood actors and their movie nicknames. Let's make this fun! Oya, lets go....

        If Nkem Owoh's movie nickname is Osuofia, and that of John Okafor is Mr Ibu. We all know Chinedu Ikedieze as Aki, while his mischievous partner in crime Osita Iheme is popularly known as PawPaw.

        We now often refer to Mercy Johnson as Dumebi, while Funke Akindele is known as both Jenifa and Sherikoko. Patience Ozokwor na Mama G (G for General!), while Kenneth Okonkwo is known as Andy since the early days of that 1992 film 'Living in Bondage'.

        What about Chiwetalu Agu who has been blessing us with rib-cracking jokes and slangs in all his movies for so many years? What is Chiwetalu's nickname ?

          If there's no money in politics (democracy), would Nollywood Actors still want to become politicians?

          There are legitimate questions we probably should be asking the likes of Desmond Elliot, Kenneth Okonkwo, Kate Henshaw, and other Nollywood Celebrities who are all arguably flocking to Nigerian Politics so as to chop "national moi-moi" like Mama G take sing am for her song.

          Abeg, make we stop deceiving ourselves in the name of politics oO. We have to help ourselves, no celebrity or politician go help us!

          In a recent interview published on Punch NG, Nollywood actress Clarion Chukwura describes the rush, especially by Nollywood practitioners, to join partisan politics as sheer hypocrisy. According to her, some artistes want to go into politics because they are not getting much money from their vocations.
          She says, “The motive of those who are embracing partisan politics is purely monetary. Let us call a spade a spade. If you tell me that you want to go into politics to serve the people, I would want to look at your record first.
          “I want to see what you have done to better the lives of the people in your immediate community. How many boreholes have you sunk in the community? How many hours of community service have you given for free over the last four or five years? How well are you known as somebody who yearns for improvement in social development?”

          So why all the pretending by all the Nollywood actors that are campaigning for political seats in various constituencies?

          How can we (the people) hold these celebrity politicians responsible if they fail to fulfill their promises towards improving our communities?

          Do not vote shallowly for anybody without asking them legitimate questions first, and you getting legitimate answers back in return. Corruption is the light of the day in the world of democracy in Nigeria.

          This is why Fela tell our people through his revolutionary music say "democracy" na "demonstration of craze".

          I hereby ask again: If there's no money in politics, would Nollywood Actors still want to be politicians?

          Imagine what Africa would be like today, if every African leader (President) were sharing #wealth to reach every single citizen of their respective African country?
          This post was inspired by the great Muammar Gaddafi, whose idea of an oil revenue-sharing program was further bringing a good measure of prosperity to each Libyan, in addition to other existing national benefits each citizen already receive such as free healthcare, free electricity, no interest loans, $50k for newly weds, $5k for every mother/born child, etc; distributing wealth.
          Below are some visions of mine, on the effects of wealth-sharing in Africa, for Africa, and among Africans. Africans in diaspora would have to relocate to their motherland with acquired skills and Afrocentric developmental knowledge in order to partake in the wealth-sharing and development contribution of the continent.
          1. If every African leader were sharing wealth; there would be very little to no corruption
          2. If every African leader were sharing wealth; armed robbery would be mitigated and very minimal
          3. If every African leader were sharing wealth; citizens would be more educated, responsible and patriotic.
          4. If every African leader were sharing wealth; there will be no need for foreign aid, FDI, and other unfavorable foreign financial support system.
          5. If every African leader were sharing wealth; crime would greatly reduce and more security stability.
          6. If every African leader were sharing wealth; Africa and her people would be a major player in World Power today.

          One of Gaddafi's economic development strategy was that his Government hand over to the people: the schools, manufacturing plants, farms, all state enterprises and the oil money, etc.

          "You would fail to stop corruption as long as the state owns the oil wealth, makes contracts with companies to carry out projects, manages health care, education and other services and economic projects" - Col. Muammar Gaddafi, in a 2009 national televised speech, according to Reuters.

          Currently, majority of the African democratic system is riddled with extreme corruption, exploitation and mismanagement of wealth and resources. Just reshuffling each nation's cabinet system would not free African countries from these economic damaging problems.

          Gaddafi's strategic proposal, and the first to do such in #Africa, was that his whole cabinet system be dismantled to free his people from corruption and mismanagement. All of this, was done towards sharing national wealth with the majority, not the corrupt minority in the government.

          If Every African Leader Were Sharing Wealth.....

            I have been doing some research on Nigeria's crude oil production, fuel consumption and wealth potentials from oil. The following information I have provided would be used as a reference whenever writing or discussing Nigeria's crude oil capacity, potentials, issues, etc.
            Note: You are free to use excerpts from this article for academic or reporting purpose as far as you give credit to the author (Kevin Onuma), and provide a link back to this page (
            Nigeria produces an estimated 2.5 million barrels of crude oil a day. Current market cost of crude oil is said to be at $85/barrel. A barrel is about 42 gallons.

            At $85 per barrel, Nigeria should be making an estimated $212.5 million a day from the sale of 2.5 million barrels of crude oil produced daily based on estimates.

            If the wealth of $212.5 million is shared among an estimated population of 175 million people, every citizen is entitled to roughly $1.21 per day. Nigeria exports majority of its crude oil to the West, and there's always fuel scarcity in the country with gas price ranging from roughly ₦100 per liter now to as high as ₦150 at some point (roughly $1 USD).

            By the way, the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) charges up to $114 per barrel of crude oil according to information gathered from Central Bank of Nigeria:

            The country exports high quality raw crude oil for a steal price and imports back gasoline at a high price for the nation's consumption, mostly due to lack of functioning refineries. Nigeria is only capable of refining about 445 barrels of crude oil per day and ranked 39th in the world based on the country's current output capacity, according to

            Nigeria is ranked 11th in Crude Oil Production, ranked 44th in Petroleum Consumption, and ranked 39th in Refinery Capacity. Nigeria is ranked 12th in the world when total Oil Production is considered, which is mainly due to our high Crude Oil Production capability.

            In a recent news report on Channels TV earlier this year, the Managing Director of Kaduna Refining and Petrochemical Company (KRPC) Limited, Mr Saidu Mohammed, who is also the immediate past Managing Director of the Nigeria Gas Company, was quoted to have said:

            “Even if all the refineries work at 100 per cent capacity, we cannot meet the demand of 30 million litres per day, and we should not forget that some of our neighbours also depend on Nigeria for fuel”.
            Mr Saidu Mohammed continued by saying:
            “We (Nigeria) will continue to import fuel as long as we cannot meet the demand because it is about demand and supply. If there is no much demand, we will not go for importation.
            I don't agree with Mr Saidu Mohammed's assertion that even if all refineries in Nigeria are working 100 per capacity, that we still cannot meet a demand of 30 million liters per day. Before arriving at such vague conclusion, have we even tried to meet a demand of 5 to 15 million of gasoline consumption? We can always scale up production once we have functioning and efficient crude oil refineries.

            The U.S population of 316 million is roughly double that of Nigeria's 175 million. Current information gathered from the U.S Energy Information Administration website, reports an average of about 368.51 million gallons (or 8.77 million barrels) are consumed by Americans daily. While in Nigeria, we only consume an estimated 30 million liters according to report.

            With at least 10 functioning high capacity crude oil refining machines/plants that can produce up to 500 thousand liters of petroleum per day/ per each efficient refinery; Nigeria should be able to produce and meet the 30million liters daily consumption of fuel.

            According to, a crude oil refinery is a group of industrial facilities that turns crude oil and other inputs into finished petroleum products. A refinery's capacity refers to the maximum amount of crude oil designed to flow into the distillation unit of a refinery, also known as the crude unit.

            Crude oil is said to be made up of a mixture of hydrocarbons, and the distillation process aims to separate this crude oil into broad categories of its component hydrocarbons, or "fractions." Crude oil is first heated and then put into a distillation column, also known as a still, where different products boil off and are recovered at different temperatures.

            Lighter products, such as butane and other liquid petroleum gases (LPG), gasoline blending components, and naphtha, are recovered at the lowest temperatures. Mid-range products include jet fuel, kerosene, and distillates (such as home heating oil and diesel fuel). The heaviest products such as residual fuel oil are recovered at temperatures sometimes over 1,000 degrees Fahrenheit.
            {What is the highest realistic capacity a crude oil refining machinery/plant can output gasoline in a day?}
            If people in the country (Nigeria) are said to be living on less than $2 per day; paying as much as $1 per liter for fuel is not only ridiculous but also wicked of the Nigerian government who are fond of mismanaging the economy's wealth and resources.

            At the time of Muammar Gaddafi’s assassination by the US and its evil allies, the price of gas in Libya was reportedly as low as $0.14 per gallon. If the Nigerian government are properly managing the country's wealth and resources, our people shouldn't be paying more than $.10 per gallon of fuel.

            Also, the Nigerian government needs to establish some sort of oil revenue sharing program similar to that of the late great Gaddafi, which helped bring a good measure of prosperity to each Libyan as they reportedly receive $500 (US Dollars) deposited into the bank account of every citizen each month.

            Gasoline prices in Nigeria is controlled by the government, and is said to be infrequently adjusted. The height of corruption in the country's democratic government, is prevent GEJ's administration from sharing the national cake with the people that voted him to power as their leader.

            Between August 2005 and December 2011, price of fuel in the country ranged from ₦65/liter (US$0.50) in 2005 and ₦56/liter (US$0.41) in 2011, except in 2007 and 2008 when it was raised to ₦75/liter for a month or thereabout and then lowered to ₦70/liter. This statistics were gathered from

            Goodluck Jonathan's administration removed fuel subsidy on January 1, 2012 and pushed the retail price to rise above ₦140 [US$0.88] per liter or higher, but following a nationwide protests by outraged citizens, the Nigerian govt then lowered it within two weeks to ₦97 (US$0.61), still representing a 49% increase from the price in 2011.

            Until of recent, Nigeria was over-dependent on crude oil as the economy's source of wealth, ignoring and not investing in other highly potential sectors. Fast emerging sectors such as telecommunication, real estate, agriculture, manufactured goods, and the motion picture industry (#Nollywood) are increasingly contributing to the economy's GDP.

            This year, Nigeria's economy (GDP) became the largest in #Africa, worth more than $500 billion, and overtook South Africa to become the world's 26th largest economy.

            I'll continue adding more information to this article, from time to time. However, if there's any information you feel is incorrect or that you'd like to expand, do not hesitate to let me know in the comment section.
