Nollywood actress, Angela Okorie has jumped on social media to share her encounter with an old beggar in London.
She recently had her say via her social media page, and Nigerians have been reacting.
According to her, she recently gave £25 to an old woman who approached her on the street of London and begged for money to feed, and the woman showered her with prayers for the monetary gift, adding that she would never lack.
Angela added that shortly after meeting the woman, she found herself in a similar situation where she was stranded and needed money and someone else came through for her.
Her words, “So I met this old woman and she said to me
Hey beautiful can you help me with anything am hungry and I said oh mama hold on
So I dipped my hands in my pockets found 25 pounds and gave it to her and she started crying I was like mama Stop crying, so she prayed for me and said you will never lack.
That same day I went to a restaurant and ordered for food I never knew I didn’t come with my wallet literally no card or cash with me, that was how I became stranded so I asked my driver do u have some money with you pls am gonna give you when I get to the hotel , he said no problem and paid for the food and asked me not to worry about the money and I was shocked and said in London? 😳I knew it was God who did.

In the midst of any situation you find your self , he will always be there 🙏 Never you stop giving…anywhere you go spread love and little kindness it will come back to you❤️”
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.
