benson_liz3Congrats to Nollywood Legend Liz Benson, she recently tied the knot with Bishop Great Ameye of Freedon Family Assembly International Church. Liz was widowed over a decade ago and has raised her 3 beautiful children as a single mother. She married Bishop Ameye in a registry ceremony in Abuja as well as a private church blessing and thanksgiving service. We are so happy for Liz. All the best and lots of happiness.

Nigeria’s movie industry fondly known as Nollywood has moved up the ranks. For the last couple of years Nollywood has been ranked as No. 3 in terms of quantity output on the list of film industries worldwide. Last week, UNESCO Institute for Statistics announced that Nollywood has overtaken Hollywood on that list. We wish the quality of the Nollywood movies start gaining as much recognition as the quantity.
