Well, another surprising fact is that after India’s Bollywood, the world’s largest number of movies are produced in Nigeria’s Nollywood. And we thought we are filmy?

8. Did you know this about Paris?

This might shock you the most, that in 1719 the prison of Paris was giving freedom to their male prisoners on one weird condition. They freed only on the condition that they would marry any prostitute and get settled in Louisiana. It is hard to believe whether it was freedom for prisoners or a housing scheme for Louisiana. But one thing for sure, it gave new life to both prisoners and prostitutes. Maybe it was a good cause that the government of Paris came up with.

After completing my studies and getting a decent job I wanted to do something creative. I firmly believed that there should be a hobby that helps you to earn. Thus I made my hobby of writing into my part-time profession and started to write from the last two years. My journey as a writer has enriched me.
