The event which held in New York on 4th May, 2013 & in Los Angeles on 11th May, 2013 was attended by a huge population of celebrities, most especially at the Los Angeles event. Omosexy‘, who has been out in Hollywood,was among celebrities like Halle Berry, Andy Garcia, Julie Bowen from ‘Modern Family’, Mario Lopez, Heidi Klum and many more.

The fundraising event has touched millions of lives as it has raised a lot of money to increase awareness, education, research, and diagnostic treatment services in the fight against women’s cancers. To date, the Run/Walks (in Los Angeles and New York) have distributed over $68 million for cancer research, treatment, counseling and outreach programs.

      LOL omotola…where do i start? what is she even looking for in america? hasn’t she seen what happened to dbanj? she better stay in nigeria and look for who will give her a script, instead of running around america. either way, halle berry is just forever young.

  • blackcoffee May 15, 2013 at 11:56 am

    That’s my Omosexy!!!!

  • Omotola’s hair and those socks = Not cool

  • Bellar May 15, 2013 at 12:16 pm

    good cause but she is a hot mess, is this after the run? na wa! c halle Barry effortless CHIC chic.

  • MARK May 15, 2013 at 12:20 pm

    Proud to see her doing something internationally.

  • Amy May 15, 2013 at 12:21 pm

    Y didn’t she just wear d t-shirt and a black jumper like everyone else? Her outfit is inappropriate and that hair.

  • betty May 15, 2013 at 12:24 pm

    Her hair,always a mes!

  • Africhic May 15, 2013 at 12:25 pm

    What’s it with Omotola and her hair? Since those early days in nollywood she’s never been able to do her hair right. Makes her look untidy.

  • Nneka May 15, 2013 at 12:26 pm

    Nice ! But vertical stripe top is a NO NO for you, if you must wear horizontal stripe or stick to neutrals. Otherwise well done x

    • Teddy Bear May 15, 2013 at 1:19 pm

      Ummm…but she is wearing horizontal stripes…

      • Straight4ward May 15, 2013 at 2:13 pm

        Hahahahaha!!!!…..your reply just made my day… @Nneka, try and get the gist right before trying to sound smart dear…It is actually the other way round!

  • deep May 15, 2013 at 12:44 pm

    Go back home omotola. *spits out coffee*

  • Flue May 15, 2013 at 12:46 pm

    That hair? The socks? She should have worn ankle length socks na!I can’t hate on her hustle though, the woman is taking proactive steps to be seen in hollywood!

  • Idy May 15, 2013 at 12:57 pm

    where’s her ring?

    • iceey May 15, 2013 at 2:36 pm

      @Idy: What has that got to do with you? Are you her Husband?

      • nan May 15, 2013 at 2:45 pm

        @iceey it has a lot to do with everything because shes married…… or doesn’t her Hollywood counterparts wear theirs??

      • nan May 15, 2013 at 8:27 pm

        @idy he did ohh….. be there….. *eyesrolling* defense minister!!! i still love her anywayz!!! it just my opinion and i am entitled to one……..

    • nan May 15, 2013 at 2:40 pm

      Thought i was the only one who noticed it! and its becoming a norm for for her…. she hardly steps out with her ring on!! is it like that??? isoria………

      • iceey May 15, 2013 at 7:36 pm

        @Nan: I ask again are you her husband? Did he complain to you? Like you said if it’s “becoming a norm for her” then probably both she and her husband(the people in the marriage), the people who matter are OKAY with it.

  • Bukie May 15, 2013 at 12:59 pm

    Not bad. But the weave has passed it’s ‘sell by’ date….

  • dimpled freak May 15, 2013 at 1:01 pm

    Pls take a look at this SITE u might find it interesting.

  • Cello May 15, 2013 at 1:12 pm

    Looks like all the haters from LIB have moved residence. Lol!

  • jcsgrl May 15, 2013 at 1:16 pm

    ROTF holding my sides, tears rolling down @ Zero, Deep and Bukie’s comments. chai! You guys will not get me fired.

  • Bassi & company May 15, 2013 at 1:23 pm

    Wicked people! Haters on A Roll! Really? Omotola keep on moving while they keep on talking. They wrote there a walk. How do you know when she took this pictures? Plus what is wrong with her look? NIGERIANS! Shakes head.

  • miss flygerian May 15, 2013 at 1:24 pm

    My problem is not even with her old and tattered weave but with her socks…wtf? see as her feet come resemble Michael Johnson’s own.

  • miss avril May 15, 2013 at 1:27 pm

    OMG!!!! So many haters…… Lmao. When I saw this, my first thought was, “impressive”. Be nice guys. loool

  • Keek Dat May 15, 2013 at 1:32 pm

    Haters gonna hate Omosexy! Go on with ya bad self. You people have not seen Halle’s stomach. Is she pregnant? I hope so

    • Naija talk May 17, 2013 at 7:06 pm

      Where have you been? just messing with you. She is indeed pregnant.

  • Oge May 15, 2013 at 1:34 pm

    I guess @Nneka means she shouldn’t wear horizontal stripes . Gosh Omo T,s hair o . WTF . And the socks and the pants! Well she wants to be seen in Hollywood by all means but it doesn’t work that way. She should go and ask British black actors in London how it is done. Never appear too desperate in Hollywood ! Omo T go back to Naija, if Hollywood wants you , they will contact u . . . . I,m not hating o Biko . . .

    • Bassi & company May 15, 2013 at 2:13 pm

      You are clearly hating. You can stay home. Small minds think only small. British actors are not omotola. You sit in your village and know how it works. Talkertive.

    • hope May 15, 2013 at 3:37 pm

      I dont agree though, that if hollywood want you they will call you, you have to be out there for them to notice you your works really, having said that, Omosexy needs to pipe down.

  • Priscy May 15, 2013 at 1:52 pm

    Halle is a very beautiful woman…OmoT I sight u, ur hair sha

  • Enigma May 15, 2013 at 1:59 pm

    Actually horizontal stripes are better. so her body looks proportionate for once. At least she doesn’t have bumbum of the world here.

  • amarachi May 15, 2013 at 2:21 pm

    But d hair no bad na,,,,,,,,,,,, na wa oooooooo

  • Uche May 15, 2013 at 2:37 pm

    Why wasn’t Omosexy given the t-shirt to wear too na!!!! Hollywood – haters

  • Abiola May 15, 2013 at 2:39 pm

    Halle Berry….me lovey

  • Sssstchewww May 15, 2013 at 2:42 pm

    so overrated

  • nich May 15, 2013 at 2:42 pm

    can’t u people celebrate success for once……..this is why many people are poor in nigeria, they can never be appreciative.

  • Haba May 15, 2013 at 2:52 pm

    Nigerians r beef dogs!!! Most of u writing evil comments am sure in real life u guys r razz and cant dress good talk less of affording an expensive weave. Encourage d woman, atleast she is an international icon and developing herself to b d woman she wants to be. I celebrate u ma!! Keep it up. Aunty genny, if u like b doing naija queen there, u no dey c ya mate?

    • Naija talk May 17, 2013 at 7:09 pm

      You just called people haters, then you turn around and bring in “Aunty Genny.” Did she tell you she has the same aspirations as Omotola. Hypocritical much?

  • hope May 15, 2013 at 2:53 pm

    I love Omotola, i think she is an incredible actress, she has so many memorable movies off top my head, Mortal Inheritance, The Prostitute, Blood Sisters, Queen of asso Rock, All my life, Working for love (which i still think is the best performance by a nollywood actress), Ije…etc.. but i think she needs to pipe down a bit on this “hollywood dream”. Being on the TIME list was fantastic for her, fine..after the gala thing in New york, move back to Nigeria! Why is she still hanging out there when she is not shooting movies anyway? She is an amazing actress but i can see why some people think she is getting a bit desperate for hollywood! Fine, its good to hustle and all but even then, there should be a limit to it, and i thought TIME magazine wrote she dosent want to go hollywood? C’mon OmoT! You are better than this!

  • omojeje May 15, 2013 at 2:57 pm

    good stuffs omoT, kudos..However, you hair really ‘is that bad’ , you can go for a run or to the gym and look chic! hair resemble homeless but body resemble rich poraro.. love you anytime! guess we can get it right all the time

  • Oge May 15, 2013 at 2:59 pm

    Thank you . . .u hit the nail on the head.

  • ghgal May 15, 2013 at 3:07 pm

    Halle’s tummy tho…….or is she prego? It always seems trimmed

    • Partyrider May 15, 2013 at 3:20 pm

      She’s pregnant

    • Amazeballs! May 15, 2013 at 3:23 pm

      OMG have you been living in a hole???!!!!! yes she is pregnant.

      • ghgal May 15, 2013 at 4:48 pm

        @Amazeballs!……there was no need for sarcasm, a person can’t ask questions anymore?? Better get answers to questions that appear ‘silly’ than being ignorant…or don’t you think so madam knowitall??

    • Winny May 15, 2013 at 10:49 pm

      Well duuuu…. she is smh

  • Warri Pickin May 15, 2013 at 3:17 pm

    She is am achiever by all standard and representing Nigeria well, Proud of her…….she try abeg, no mata how una yab dis babe reach, she don pass many people level, ……………and that is achievement una hear ….lol

  • stellamwindsor May 15, 2013 at 3:17 pm

    @miss flygerian i guess you meant michael jackson!!! keep it up omosexy.

  • emeka May 15, 2013 at 3:26 pm

    people shld leave omotola to go and spend the little naira she has just to show off. this woman seem to forget dat money comes and go. wel good for her. may be she is having her pemanent source tho. just saying. let her come home and take care of her home naa. i thot the time thng is over. she is just one celeb dat is soo desperate for fame and only God knows what she can do to b famous

  • queen May 15, 2013 at 3:35 pm

    @haba the person who mention genny please just drop it. genny has far passed this level. she is just the one celeb in nollywood dat knows how to carry herself as a celeb. she is not a wannabe like co. i just love her and if i become a celeb 2morrow, thats the one person i will like to b like. omotola please save for the rainy days. wel may be u dont pay flight and other expenses while moving frm one ctry to another. just a concern fan.

    • hope May 15, 2013 at 3:49 pm

      Be honest though, you are not a fan.. like really, this is just a forum, you didnt have to condemn her to elevate Genny… just saying..

      • Naija talk May 17, 2013 at 7:12 pm

        True talk!

  • chiquita May 15, 2013 at 3:53 pm

    I like OmoT, but those socks??? did she see how others dressed up, I mean HalleB is preggo, and still looks 10 times better than her, and uhm…didn’t she get the T-shirt or did she crash the event?

  • charming May 15, 2013 at 4:03 pm

    Its amazing hw some pple sit nd type a comment. the caption shows it was a walk, was omotola supposed to dress like she was going to a nite ball. This is our own Nigerian sister, our very own bt I see pple hailing halle berry, nt dat its wrong dou bt y choose d way of spite. For sum of u saying she is looking 4 fame in HollyWood, I wud advice u watch sum of dese international progs so u knw dat tins ar nt done anyhow esp in progs like dis. U only appear were ur invited nd she 4 her to b present dre it means she was invited. Pls if ur to criticise, let it 4 once be constructive nd dnt share tots dat wud affect u in life. Trust mi every comment is a seed nd u wud reap it. Of the increase of ur success dre shall b no end Omotola.

    • hope May 15, 2013 at 4:26 pm

      I get where you are coming from, and maybe we are being too harsh on her here but the whole thing is happening so fast its surprising..First it was TIME, the other day she was with ‘hollywood’ people like the girl from destinys child and kimberly elise and now this, all in the space of weeks..and check her wikipedia profile now, see the sudden change there.. i think someone (maybe her PR) is PIMPING her! It is really worrying…

  • rebellious child May 15, 2013 at 4:05 pm

    all this good cause she is attending should teach her how to implement that in nigeria and create similar fundraising events among her celeb friends to help uplift the community she is coming from.

  • Tatafo May 15, 2013 at 4:07 pm

    Omo sexy! i could see the effect of tummy tuck…hmmmm. Naija celeb cosmetics surgery wan finish una… rest ma case

  • hope May 15, 2013 at 4:16 pm

    Does anyone else think this whole hollywood thing is totally overrated? why can we no make a good movie than will be nominated for the oscars at all (that is considered to be the pinnacle of artists). Our artists can acheive international recognition like Oscars without having to go to hollywood! And speaking of Omotola,(continue from where i stopped..lol) in my humble opinion, i think she should forget about the whole hollywood nonsense and concentrate on making good movies. She should drop the music thing! its never gonna work, and its funny how she thinks people that critisize her music are her haters…lol… i struggle to believe anybody could be a bigger fan of OmoT than i am and i think the music thing is just quite franky embarrasing! And i agree with a poster above, why didnt she wear the shirt? She probably gate grashed the thing? lol.. even more embarassing…..hahaha… Omotola, stop this mess ASAP! get back to Nigeria, continue making good movies and take care of your family..

  • Laila May 15, 2013 at 4:19 pm

    Omo Sexy in international news AGAIN!!! You go girl!!! All these wall gecko’s crawling about with their ‘local’ comments. Get a life…..or better yet, get HER life – if na so e eazy!!

  • omojeje May 15, 2013 at 4:32 pm

    ogbeni mumu @Charming, dont forget halle berry is also a black woman! black american or nigerian, Black is black. why do i think Omotola herself is this @Charming ? all we are sayin is just our opinion. once you are a popular figure you should expect positive and negative comments duh! which one is the curse wey u dey curse? Odeson!!

    halle is preggy and still looks hawt is what we are saying. Omotola’s hair is just a turn off. that does not mean she is a bad person! mumu like you @ charming. we are only talking about this picture, this even, and this particular hair. not OmoT ‘s life history. . ogeni odeson@charming. go drink cold water abeg

  • Babious May 15, 2013 at 4:44 pm

    please tell me what she is doing exactly? parading hollywood like she’s a hollywood superstar? or just posing with hollywood celebs? like rebellious child said, with her influence she should implement it in naija and gather nollywood celebs. how can they know who she is,wen she’s busy taking pictures with them like a fan and attending their event SHE’S NOT INVITED TO. And yeah, TIME magazine my ASS!

  • loveth .O May 15, 2013 at 5:24 pm

    Y not People allow her to hv her Fun, i know if it where to be some of us we wouldn’t even want to come back to Naija for like Some Months after Mking the 100 list

  • Tokunbo May 15, 2013 at 5:33 pm

    Good but she sort of looks out of place here. Like she was passing by saw a crowd of REAL celebrities gathered and ran up to take pictures. Why didn’t she take pictures with Halle Berry?Tsk.That hair aaaaaaaaaaargh. But is that success really? Cos she took pictures with celebrities? America isn’t like Nigeria, you see Halle Berry live a normal life. She drops Nahla off in school she goes out shopping etc. But for the paparazzi she is normal. They act the part when they have too not like these wanabes down here. I appreciate the fact that she’s mixing up(but am still sad some class hasn’t rubbed off her) but hey how does that do anything for the Nigerian movie industry?what international icon?Compare her acting skills to Genevieve, iretiola, bimbo akintola, funlola aofiyebi-raimi and a few veterans Omotola scores very low. Please lets not get sentimental here. Again i appreciate that she’s putting her American visa to good use but please how does that doing anything for us. Angelina Jolie is UN Ambassador, George Clooney does something positive as well what does she do besides take pictures?Forget that TIME magazine publication i am sure the editor goggled female Nigerian actress and seeing that she takes tons of pictures her face came up more than 100 times and that’s how she got there.

    • hope May 15, 2013 at 6:44 pm

      I agree that maybe shouldnt be there..but saying the likes of Funlola, Genevieve and even Bimbo is better than her is just not true. OmoT is one of the best actress in the country!Ive seen some of Funlola’s movies and she cant even emote properly.. You can knock her for maybe “trying too hard” but you cant knock her as an actress!! There is no way in hell those people you mention are better the OmoT in acting..

    • AW May 16, 2013 at 6:37 am

      @ Tokunbo, Well said! You took the nail and hammered it right in the heart of the matter. A lot of people are not objective when they are passionate about something or someone. They put on rose-tinted lenses, so everything appears just the way they want it. You said it the way it is.

  • Oge May 15, 2013 at 6:52 pm

    Why is it that when you have an opinion in Naija , u are labelled a HATER?? I dont get my people at all. Are we not allowed to have an opinion or what ? U guys utter the word HATER like . . .kai! Jeez I no fit shout ! This is a forum and I have to right to yarn what I wan yarn.

    • hope May 15, 2013 at 7:21 pm

      True talk…..lol….

    • AW May 15, 2013 at 7:35 pm

      My dear, once you don’t follow the popular movement, u r seen as different and a hater. In Naija, u are not allowed to have a dissenting view. It is WRONG, in fact how dare u? :) you must follow the popular vote. What can we do? Take it like dat, na so we see am.

      • The observant one May 15, 2013 at 10:43 pm

        Reminds me of habba and how dare u’s drama :) Biiiiig big eye opener. Reminds me each time to think before typing and spewing out mindless ‘talk’ all in the name of opinion. Sadly a lot of us do that.

  • Toyin May 15, 2013 at 7:45 pm

    Omo T, I see you trying to go international but just take it easy ok? You don’t have to force it. And, make sure you know what type of occasion and do your research before you attend. You look out of place here. I’ve always said, leave that short pant and socks for Michael Jackson(only him can rock it perfectly). Never, ever wear your hair like that again. Put more effort to it. Nonetheless, keep working hard.

  • Sita May 15, 2013 at 8:36 pm

    i think her hair the care free southern california vibe to it! i like it

  • grapes May 15, 2013 at 8:38 pm

    omo t, pls live your life and continue the good works. those who are with u are far more than those against u. kudos my love

    • Bassi & company May 16, 2013 at 5:56 pm

      THIS RIGHT HERE , I WISH OMOTOLA WILL SEE! THIS IS THE BEST COMMENT EVER.
      WAS DISCUSSING THIS WITH MY GIRLFRIEND AND SHE SAID EXACTLY THIS ” THOSE THAT LOOOOOOOVE YOU OMOTOLA ARE WAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY MORE THAN THE FEW THAT RUN DROP COMMENTS HATING ON YOU”

  • Deedee May 16, 2013 at 12:01 am

    who cares, next pls……………….

  • Uk May 16, 2013 at 12:41 am

    I like her but she needs to calm down….she is trying too hard if you ask me, do more in Nollywood pls cos there are way too many jobless actors in hollywood pls let me borrow uche jumbo or was it Genny that said you can’t be more American than the Americans ? Moral of this is stick to what you know 9ja…do the women fund what not in lagos

  • Es May 16, 2013 at 1:32 am

    No one on this blog knows why Omotola is still in the US! How can people be so critical? Don’t some of you come on vacation here and take forever, leaving your children and husbands at home? Does anyone come and tell you to come home back to your husbands? Does someone come and say because you’re on holiday/abroad you’re desperate? Jeeezzzz you don’t even know why the woman is here. What if she’s working on something? This is a walk, she’s not supposed to look all dolled up. She exudes beauty and confidence naturally. Omotola, more grease to your elbow. I’m not Nigerian, I’m Ghanaian, but there is a proverb that, your closest friends/family/people will not praise you until strangers start praising you. Keep up the GREAT work!

  • Invisible May 16, 2013 at 4:50 am

    I see bellanaija have started allowing any comment like Linda ikeji and the haters from LIB have decided to corrupt BN, pls BN I have solo much respect for your blog don’t let every comment fly just cos you want to see the number of people commenting going up high. And you all should allow omotola be, wats up with bashing her every time haba, this fundraising thing might have happened immediately after the Time event and it isn’t any of our business why she should still be in the U S, her hubby isn’t complaining so I don’t know why you all should be saying crab about your own celebrity. PLAYAHATERS!!!!! If she wants to go anywhere without her ring it’s no one’s biswac!!!!!!!

  • Invisible May 16, 2013 at 4:52 am

    *meant soon much respect*

  • L.A Chick May 16, 2013 at 5:08 am

    Well done Omo but biko next time no wear dis kind socks…

  • Oaken May 16, 2013 at 2:18 pm

    Two things here:

    1. Omotola strategically crashed this walk that’s why she is wearing stripes shirt and begging

    2. Her ikebe and belle no go gree make them find role for her o…lol. At 35yrs old she dey yarn omo sexy…Wetin Halle berry! 46 yrs old wan yarn!

  • Naveah May 16, 2013 at 3:10 pm

    Oaken May 16, 2013 at 2:18 PM 1. Omotola strategically crashed this walk that’s why she is wearing the striped shirt and leggings – AND YOU WILL BE RIGHT. If you are part of the walk…as in you were inviited or you helped raise money for the cause, you get the t-shirt to represent the organization. I have been parts of walks for breast cancer and other organizations. She probably found out that it was going on and decided to go as a way to mingle with more Hollywood people. Listen, this might pay off for her because the thing is the more they see her face, the more they might begin to accept her in the circle especially if a person with name/clout becomes a fairy godfather/godmother for her. BUT it can also backfire too because they can smell desperation. The key is to act like she belongs there and has always been there, she might just work her way into the Hollywood consciousness. It is a strategy. It is like a chess game.

    She get liver, I must give it to her, she is not backing down from her hustle. Personally, I have too much pride to be going to events and trying to look like I’m among like she did at the Grammys when she took pictures at the tail end of the red carpet. Nothing Ventured, Nothing Gain I say. At least homegirl is not sitting on her behind at home eating amala and day dreaming about the life she wants, she is going out there and seizing the bulls by the horn. In the later years of her life, she can at least look back with less regret than the rest of us here commenting.
