Pictures of the traditional marriage went viral on social media earlier in April, sparking various reactions.
Nwoko served in the House of Representatives from 1999 to 2003.
In May 2019, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) withdrew the certificate of return given to Peter Nwaoboshi, his opponent for the Delta North Senatorial District, and presented it to him.
Nwoko, however, lost out on July 16 after the Supreme Court dismissed the petition he filed against the primary election of Peter Nwaoboshi.
The actress died on Wednesday, a news which took most of her colleagues by surprise.
Odunlade Ademola, Jide Kosoko, Ronke Oshodi Oke, Bisola Badmus, Toyin Abraham, Bisola Badmus, Ronke Odusanya among other top Nollywood artistes took to their social media handles on Wednesday to express shock over the news of Aisha’s death.
Lisa Omorodion, a Nollywood actress and filmmaker who featured in the latest comedy movie, Excess Luggage, says Nigerians need to enrich their knowledge by showing interest in other genres of movies apart from comedy.
The actress who seems not to be impressed with the seemingly exclusive taste for comedy films by cinema-goers said some serious Nigerian issues need to be brought to the spotlight in the Nigerian film industry.
“In the cinema, Comedy does better because everyone wants to laugh. Everyone is going through struggles. Nobody wants to come to the cinema to watch something that will make them cry.
“But on the other hand, we need to reach out to people to let them understand what human beings are going through,” she said.
The actress who also took on a major role in the non-comedy flick ‘Little Drops of Happy’ believes that an exclusive desire for a single genre is not only hurting the filming industry but also keeping viewers away from vital life information.
Omorodion advises that Nigerians should be more receptive to films outside the comedy circle adding that this might reduce the suicide rate in Nigerian society.
“Suicide rate is on the increase because people don’t tackle these serious issues. We don’t talk about it well enough. I feel that Nigerians need to be open to new genres of movies well enough. Movies that tackle serious issues that need to be talked about in Nigeria,” she said.
Nollywood actress, Halima Abubakar, announced that she will soon be releasing a bio book/look book.
She shared a few pictures on her Instagram and she captioned ‘This are pics I love from my bio book/look book coming soon, with my movies under my production company modehouz. I would not address any more negativity again. This is me.”
Another picture was captioned “I don’t like to hide my flaws, they are plenty…But regardless of how any one feels, am super confident, happy in my thick skin and at peace.”
Music duos, 2Kriss and YFS have released two new singles, one of which was inspired by Nollywood actress turned singer, Tonto Dike.
The two collaborative singles titled “BADDO” and “TONTO” were produced by 2Kriss.
“Baddo” is a bass-heavy tune with witty lyrics and infectious flows from 2Kriss and YFS, backed by thumping drums and grand piano arrangements while “Tonto” as you will have guessed is a playful and light-hearted ode to Nigerian superstar actress.
All aged between 17 and 19, Moses and Raphael, who together form the group 2KRISS as well as Esdee and Havoc, who make up YFS, score points for creativity with their new tracks.
