    You might have heard of Hollywood, Bollywood, etc. Have you also heard of Nollywood?  Nollywood is a quickly expanding movie production industry that started in West Africa at around 1990s. Established in Ghana, yet headquartered in Lagos, Nigeria, the industry serves as a production house for many Nigerian-and-Ghanaian-language films. Some films are based on English while some interchange Pidgin English with native ethnic languages too. , Nollywood offers a diversity of genres like juju, mafias, traditional and Hausa shows. However, the most recommended are dramas, love, plays, and Hallelujah (religious) themes. In recent times, Nollywood has the rank of being the second-largest movie production unit in the world after Bollywood. The next largest after Nollywood is Hollywood. In general, around 200 films are produced each month. The movies are then distributed by a complex chain of trade routes that incorporate online as well as offline circulation. It allows many distant places to be able to watch their movies. The culture of watching movies in CDs or DVDs is still prevalent in the Nollywood industry. Few of the highest-grossing Nigerian films include The Wedding Party released in 2016 followed by its sequel The Wedding Party 2 in 2017. The Wedding Party is a love story about an art gallery owner who was aged 24 years and an IT entrepreneur. Chief Daddy, Crime Action and Merry Men: The Real Yoruba Demons are the most popular comedy films. Black Venus or Vénus Noire in French, is a movie about Sarah Baartman, a phenomenal figure known for the evil objectification of her body by the Europeans. Sarah was shipped off to Cape Town as a servant by Dutch colonialists after which she was made to exhibit her body half naked due to her unusually large and protruding buttocks. Sarah Baartman had a tragic life, and the movie portrays her life story.    Nollywood movies are available on Netflix so you can watch and chill. Nigerians who live abroad love watching them as they give them a trip down the memory lane. Have you watched any Nollywood movie?
