'Why I named my twins Nollywood & Hollywood' - Ogedengbe reveals

Actor and movie producer Femi Ogedengbe who welcomed a set of twins with his wife in May and named them Nollywood and Hollywood is still talking about why he chose the names for his son and daughter. Speaking with Encomium magazine this week, Femi explains;
"The names are my own way of appreciating the industry that gave me a chance, that is Nollywood and the industry I aspire to breakthrough, Hollywood. I will simply say thank you to the people who criticized me for giving me attention. It shows they noticed me. Also it shows they left their own problems to respond to a guy with a very humble background from Dagbale Akoko Edo who grew up in the slums of Mushin. Furthermore, to those who say I am an attention seeker, I say thanks to them for granting me and my wife undue attention. Sadly it did not come with money"

Excatly! That's what he want, to come with money, but too bad, it didn't, My beautiful aunty linda, yesterday was a good day for the children of late, EMMANUEL ODUMoSU, alias Jesu oyingbo, there was a case for almost 16yrs, over his properties in barclays and Nigeria, as to who will continue to manage it, but thank God, the court has handed over all the property to UBA BANk, as the administrators to take charge of all his property, the children were jubilating, after the judge announced that the all his house should be sealed off and eject all the tenants from the houses both maryland, Mile 12, Ijebu Ode and all other places, and UBA should take over the property.

Why is dis Femi guy seeking for so much attention abeg? They r ur kids and u have given dem names that seems ok by u. Why are u disturbing us with unnecessay explanations abeg? Ogbeni get off d radar and stop disturbing us with ur notice me or I die attitude jare!

This is the first time I'm commenting on this story since it broke out. I wonder what this guy thinks he's doing. Mr man you are not even popular in Nollywood , so I don't know what your problem is. So because coming to the USA changed my life my child should be named America? Do you even know what you have exposed these babies to? May God forgive you o. Linda please stop bringing up is story here. Let him be with his stupidity.

Chai!!!!
Some people don't take criticism lightly sha. The poor guy is still heartbroken and I'd trying to cover up by using defence mechanism approach.
Dude, you don't owe anyone an explanation for naming your kids whatever!
After all, It's better than those that were christened Njoku, Ekpo, etc

Patience Enobakhare said...

Wow Congrats. Linda if u did not post my comment I ll knw u really haith me,

Linda na only u dey give dis man attention o!

Anonymous said...

On a first account, that brother is not lanky. Unless I skipped the class in English Language where my teacher defined lanky as what we have here. Secondly, it is just dumb to give one's kids bland and petty names such as Nollywood and Hollywood. He was born and bred in "the slum of Mushin", why didn't his parents christen him Oluwamushin? Oh, or say his father was a hunter, he could have simply named him 'Ekute' or 'Omo Ode'. Names play an important role in making a child what he/she becomes tomorrow. Take Bill Gates. . . He's got too much paper bills. This is a desperate cry for attention and it pricks my heart that he shows no remorse for it. Pitiful.

Are u serious naming children cause ur grateful to a job, dat makes no sence. The name sounds lame too, I probably would change my name asp

Anonymous said...

Linda, to be lanky means to be painfully thin. You have joined the bandwagon of Nigerians who have Nigerianised the English language with meanings only known to them... Back to the matter, Femi Ogedengbe can name his children whatever name he chooses, only issue is the embarrassment the children will endure when they grow up especially when school mates taut them.

These are wrong names:
nollywood characterised by cheating,divorce & lack of decency same goes for hollywood, u had better change the names of the babies,God bless u as u do.

pls no one actually cares what you call your children in as much as we are happy about the wonderful gift from God, if you like you can call your children boko haram, that's your cup of tea. Please we need to read more interesting stories, definitely not about you and your odd names because stories about you are boring, so spare us this space you cover for a breath of fresh air.
