“She is Truly an Icon in the Movie Industry” – Nollywood Star Omoni Oboli on “Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde the Trailblazer”

Talk about a woman celebrating another woman. Even better a Nollywood movie star celebrating another.

At a time when we hear tales of rivalry in Nollywood, Omoni Oboli proves she truly supports her fellow stars. The Anchor Baby actress wrote an article for Daily Independent on Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde.

Titled Omotola the Trailblazer, she writes on the phenomenon that is Omosexy.

Check it out.

I am Omoni Oboli and I represent Naija!

Our country is littered with success stories that have shaped us into who we are. We have icons that have, through their consistency, paved the way for many of us to walk right through. Many have done it unwittingly by just focusing on achieving their personal goals and in their resolve to break through the stereotypes, disenfranchisements and stigmas they have shown the  rest of us the endless possibilities in their chosen fields.

Others have done it with a plan to leave a trail for others to follow.

I will continue to celebrate these icons that I consider to be the true role models for our youth to emulate in our nation. One such icon is our very own Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde. The original Omosexy who has been tagged the African Magic.

Omotola waltzed into the movie industry before it was nicknamed Nollywood and took her place at the top of the industry as a leading lady like she actually owned the place. She fits into it easily like one who knew that she was born to do this. Her consistency at the top is evidence of her prowess at delivering every role consistently from when she stole our hearts in the movie Mortal Inheritance.

The ever-growing fans of Nollywood have been held spellbound by her believability in all her varied roles. At such a young age when many didn’t know their left from right she understood the responsibility that came with being the leading lady. We saw her cry, laugh, rejoice, explore and display other emotions and adventures that Nollywood has been consistently propelling us actors through in the last 21 years of its existence so that we have come to believe that we know her personally.

With her own style and wits, Omotola has somehow shown us her life and yet kept the personal bit intact, even though she got into marriage at an age many consider to be too young. She has stayed in the marriage when many casualties of failed marriages litter our nation and our industry. She simply defied the odds! Even though pilots are reputed to be philanderers, she has been successfully married to one for many years. Actors have a global reputation of divorces, citing the flimsiest excuses for their actions, but she has been steadfast in her marriage.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not putting down actors for their divorces because many other industries surpass them in divorce rates. I’m just showing that these are perceived notions the world over. Many of them, especially the actresses, have had to endure strenuous relationships due to their celebrity status in the hands of their spouses,. Through it all, our Omosexy remains a pillar of virtue as an example to many that it is possible to stay focused, achieve success in any field of endeavour and still maintain a good family.

She continues to break grounds globally, being celebrated for what we already knew she is, one of the most influential figures of our time! This is due to the impact of our film industry, Nollywood. This industry that many do not yet see its direct and indirect impact on our society, but has broken grounds the world over. This Nollywood that gave the opportunity to many of us to find our voice globally. Where we would have been big fishes in our small pond, we find that the world hangs on our every word and action. This is such a huge responsibility for us to bear, and Omotola has held her place there such that she has been commended for it consistently.

I don’t need to talk about all the awards she has acquired over the years, and I don’t know if she can count how many awards she has received till date, but we know that she has not failed to deliver on most of her performances. The Bible says that a man’s gifts makes room for him and brings him before great men, kings or captains of industries, and it certainly has in her case. She has been honoured for her performance on screen and for her activities off screen. She has lent her voice to many worthwhile causes and championed many of her own.

She is the mother of four children and has managed to stay in shape, not only for the screen, but for her husband. She is truly an icon in the movie industry and in Nigeria as a whole. She has shown that with hard work, consistency, diligence, focus and a desire to achieve, there is nothing that can stop your rise to the top of your game.

I try to celebrate the icons in our nation that are worthy of emulating so that our youth and our people can begin to heal from the damage of inconsistent, morally decadent and corrupt role models that we have followed in the past and start chatting a new course for ourselves by looking to people whose lives have paved a walkway to greatness.

Remember to go out there and start or continue buying and watching our movies, like Anchor BabyLast Flight to AbujaDoctor Bello and many other titles out there that are good quality products. My movie, Render to Caesar, will be in the cinemas sometime in November. It promises to be a must watch for everyone. I’m starring alongside Gbenga Akinnagbe (The Wire, Lottery Ticket), Wale Ojo (Phone Swap, Johnny English), Lucky Ejim (The Tenant), Kalu Ikeagwu, Dede Mabiaku, Bimbo Manuel and many others.

Our future depends on your consistency in supporting us so that we can keep smiling.

    Now THIS is a piece. There is nothing more beautiful than women celebrating and lifting each other up. All that bad blood and spite that people are trying to invoke is ridiculous. Both women appear more graceful from this, no one less than the other.

    • Hope August 31, 2013 at 2:05 pm

      This! I saw Mortal Inheritance again early this week and its easy to why the film is considered to be one of the best ever Nigerian movies..Simple story told effectively..And, the Acting totally rocked..

      • Lizzie August 31, 2013 at 3:28 pm

        Where did you see it oh biko i want?

      • nene August 31, 2013 at 7:45 pm

        omotola was soo gorgeous and still is and she’s an amazing actress sans the gra gra and fakeness. i won’t lie, i like her

  • Hope August 31, 2013 at 1:48 pm

    Great! Theres no greater honor than when your fellow colleagues appreciate you.. Thanks Omoli..

  • Gistyinka Blog August 31, 2013 at 2:13 pm

    Truly Omotola make us proud….

  • Na wha August 31, 2013 at 2:14 pm

    Love when a woman celebrates another. Such maturity. Love me some omotola and of course omoni, they both seem very grounded…. Perhaps such level of maturity comes with having a family? I dunno, i really adore both ladies.

  • melly August 31, 2013 at 2:14 pm

    FAMZING

    • Karen August 31, 2013 at 2:58 pm

      You took it out of my mouth. This reeks of too much ass-licking

      • Hope August 31, 2013 at 3:09 pm

        Lol..Maybe OmoT “PR” paid her the write the piece? :D *jokes*…

  • Tee August 31, 2013 at 2:36 pm

    God bless You Omoni for that beautiful piece.It shows u have a good heart, selfless and admire good work.Trust me you will go far.To all the haters dat were quick to read the headline dat Omosexy is zero in hollywood,search ur heart,for many dat judged/criticised b4 they read d full Telegraph interview,hmmm so sad on how ppl hate some1 they dnt knw so much,I wonder how dey treat their friends.For many that attended the dinner to celebrate with her for a motive other than to wish her well,pls learn from this write-up,when u appreciate a good thing u are bound to be appreciated.And for those that didn’t attend intentionally bcus they just couldn’t stand others towering them.Trust me such a heart don’t ever get there,they only continue to celebrate/sing their own old glory.Life is too short,let’s all put aside our criticism for once and show LOVE,cus love conquers all.

  • Omo August 31, 2013 at 2:51 pm

    Oh please! *rolls eyes* Pretentious woman

  • goldfinch August 31, 2013 at 3:20 pm

    Let me tell you why most women do not like celebrating fellow women. From what I have observed so far apart from envy and jealousy, when you celebrate other women most people say you are famzing.

  • Hope August 31, 2013 at 3:37 pm

    @Lizzie.. Go to Dailymotion website to see it..:)

  • Lady Jaye August 31, 2013 at 3:46 pm

    IMO it does read more like sucking up than genuine admiration, what with the backdoor praise being given to OmoT and the shade to other women (divorced for flimsy reasons, philandering pilots, really?).

  • Tuu August 31, 2013 at 4:02 pm

    Abeggi…I won’t lie it looks very pretentious to me,I lik OmoT yea!bt it luks very very fake,I cnt tink of a suitable rsn,bt y not pple lik Joke Silva or Liz Benson,mayb she’s jst tryn 2b more popular +its rily long and borin.

    • amaka August 31, 2013 at 5:49 pm

      Lol..aw do you know this looks fake? Did you by any chance glimpse her intentions when she was penning down the article? And saying Omoni wrote this to be more popular, a more ridiculous statement I’m yet to hear. Male artistes hail themselves everyday, acting like brothers in one big family but when it comes to us women, mba, we must sha look for something ugly to paint it with. Smh!

  • Dolly August 31, 2013 at 5:29 pm

    Honestly if there’s a walk of fame ever in Nigeria, OMOTOLA should be among the first set of pioneers, icons and legends to be inducted. All the leading ladies during her time are all yester-stars or has-been, but she’s still at the top where she was when she started 18years ago.

    I remember Regina Askia was the queen then no other lady could do what she does, or even replace her except Omotola. She lost so many roles to Omotola then and one of such was the movie Humilation. It’s the same rivalry that fans steered up between Omotola and Genevieve that happened back then. It was Omotola vs Regina, who is the prettiest, the better actress etc. One good thing about Omotola is her confidence, she knows her onions, her place and she gives you a run for that crown fiercely.
    Cocky as she sometimes come across she earned it, in an industry that is quietly tribalised (hush i’m igbo but thats the truth) she fought her way through and refused to back off not even with the emergence of our “in your face” cinderellas.

    I love Genevieve, i’m not just a fan i’m a stan but really if that industry was a fashion industry, she would respect Omotola very much. People like Omotola (In Dbanj’s voice) and most times when i see her movie with my family, i often wonder out loud- OMOTOLA WHEN WILL YOU LET MY PEOPLE GO? lol
    What i have realized about success is you dont have to love the “subject” but you have to respect the hustle, the years!

    • Annie August 31, 2013 at 6:10 pm

      PREACH! The likes of reginia askia,Liz Benson and omotola.Where are the rest? if we re to talk bout RELEVANCY HERE! OMOTOLA HAS BEEN RELEVANT FOR 18YEARS! COMMON !

      • Dolly August 31, 2013 at 6:46 pm

        Exactly sista…..give to ceasar whats ceasar…(did i even say that shit right?)

    • Lolu August 31, 2013 at 7:38 pm

      Well, Regina Askia is now a nurse and Liz Benson is now a preacher. They decided to pursue other career paths. That omotola decided to stay in acting could mean she had no other option apart from acting. Staying the longest in d industry doesn’t make you the best there is. For as much as u praise her for being good, Genevieve still came in and overthrew her run cos her face(Genny) is the most recognized in nollywood both home and abroad. This is coming from somebody who knows. Omotola knows that as well and thats why she’s been striving to take over that position cos she thinks she deserves it being that she came into the industry b4 genny. Its not how long u’ve done it my dear, its how well. Yeah, omotola’s name might be one of the first but Genevieve’s name will come before hers cos let’s face it, Genny put nollywood on the int’l (especially western) map.

      • Ronke September 1, 2013 at 8:12 am

        Lolu, dear lolu you have been drinking hyssop! Genny only made wave cos she was a “new ibo ” girl . She is okay and that’s it! You are so predictable! From the start of your comment I knew you were no ordinary critique, you are one of Genevieve’s online machines! Lol… Daft bunch. Omotola like any trusted brand is 20 years of TOP quality! That in every language and business means YOO REALIABITITY. It means costumers and fans find her and her Brand irresistible and have kept her in business! I laughed so hard at ” maybe Omotola didn’t have anything else to do” …you people are so desperate you’ll say the silliest things just to try! Oh omotola too couldn’t become a pastor? She read estate management she couldn’t do properties? She couldn’t decide to stay put in one of the many countries we all know she goes that the drop of a hat. Oh I forgot, it takes special skills to do all these! Bloody loosers!
        Genny came into the industry met a force tried with all the ibo shit and politics to topple her, even as the new girl, she still couldn’t . Hate the game but Respect the Player! Omotola is Boss. I remember only Omotola could take “Daybreak” from Regina askia. Most of the Roles today that genny played , I said most were first offered to Omotola. I know cos I know.
        Genny might be skinnier…he’ll with only one kid, why shouldn’t you? Omotola has dropped 4 and on most good days is still more drop dead gorgeous than her! Acts more convincing than her, and despite not licking ass by attending everyone’s birthday,burial, wedding, naming ceremonies and sending gifts to all producers is still truly most people’s first choice. I’ll leave it here for now….* gun blazing*

      • Dolly September 1, 2013 at 1:48 pm

        Lolu hon, where do i start…..i really wanna have a conversation with you without us havin a problem but most of what you state in your comments are opinions (which u is entitle to) not facts.
        First of all how u gon say she had no other choice of profession when she got a degree in Estate mgt. from yaba tech? Regina saw future in America not in nollywood, same for Liz in the kingdom of God. Now when you quit, you quit regardless of how or why, you iz just a quitter (that’s sayin it politely, but on the streets you is a effin loser)
        Now to the other vague comment about longevity, nah homme you got it all wrong there. Longevity without success = failure without recognition, i could name a few actress who started with Omotola (i’d rather not, coz then who am i to judge someone’s success) and they are still in the industry doin……(well u finish that line)

        Now Lastly on Genevieve (Whom i so much love and hate to be dragged into this Omotola vs Genny BS) you ve’ got a point, she helped put nollywood in the western map (through that mention on Oprah’s show) She put an industry that has been built, estabilished by the pioneers, the icons who made africans believe in its stability and growing structure right here at home. Now who are the icons we are talking about, that list includes Omotola, they paved the way for Genevieve to take it to the next level. Rather than sit back and smile Omotola continued to pave the way by going on to help break that barrier, she’s not on a vengeance she’s on a mission. Now you can either reason with these facts or be slighted, and go on about how Genevieve is the Jesus christ of Nollywood and came to save the industry, put it on the world’s map etc
        But remember hon, Jesus was made king by God so in this case of Genevieve the queen there’s some you gotta bow down to….the queen/king’s maker and who that is?
        OMOTOLA!!!

      • Hope September 1, 2013 at 2:30 pm

        I do not for a moment believe what you have said. Lets just leave it at that.

    • nene August 31, 2013 at 7:46 pm

      true words

    • fred August 31, 2013 at 9:10 pm

      Dear Dolly, flesh and blood haven’t revealed this to you but God who is in heaven…. Ur comment is Spot on..

      • Dolly September 1, 2013 at 1:22 pm

        Thanks Fred God knows i aint never lied lol

    • is that so? September 1, 2013 at 9:24 am

      @Dolly, I am Omotolas fan ….but pls stop lying that you are igbo …a true igbo person wont say that knowing fully well half of the industry are not igbo…..i am sure you are the type that believes that anyone without the stereotypical yoruba or hausa name is igbo….

      • Dolly September 2, 2013 at 12:23 am

        @HOPE
        Hon you aint gotta believe me for a second but you better act like you know these facts forever!

        @Is that So?
        phuck what?? is that even a name? oh yeah sounds dumb but thats not my problem. First of all you dont come here on bella actin like u know who Dolly iz, you dont know me so shut the hell up. On a subtle note, most times i wish Omotola was igbo too hahaha i call her Uloma so selfish but hey i’m not tribalistic, i could really care less. You are who you are and tribe don’t & will never define me, deuces!

  • Iris August 31, 2013 at 5:35 pm

    • julexy September 1, 2013 at 6:45 pm

      Lollllllllllllll*help!can’t stop laughing*

  • Toni August 31, 2013 at 5:38 pm

    I can never take the views of someone who wears colored contact lenses and horrible weaves as smart. I believe these “enhancements” are clouding the way you think. This woman not only lacks style but is ignorant. Lol. Omoni, you and your colored contact lenses, do not need to bring other people down to raise one up. She is the kind of woman I cannot stand because they think marriage is a do or die affair and you must endure the sh*t your partner puts you through. Marriage is meant to be a beautiful thing between two people. Does she think that the average Nigerian woman in Nigeria, wants to get divorced? That country makes it very difficult for single women & mothers. If you do not have a man by your side, especially as a husband (even though he has no regard for your feelings and existence), you are considered worthless/ you are not a whole woman and that is one of the reason why Nigerians (not all) rate Omotola higher than Genevieve. Only God knows what Genevieve goes through.

    Does she know what goes on in Omotola and other actors’ marriages? Omotola’s marriage is HER own marriage and let other people deal with their marriage how they choose to. I know a Nigerian woman who has been married for 37 years and has had to deal with infidelity (from her husband) throughout that marriage. Her source is happiness is going from one church to another and surrounding herself with people who depend on her. That woman is not married to me, she just has a baby daddy who happens to be her housemate.

    “She is the mother of four children and has managed to stay in shape, not only for the screen, but for her husband.” Omotola is not in shape. And extremely wide hips and a somewhat smaller waist do not equal “staying in shape”. She is a big woman and should stay in shape for health reasons.

    • Hope August 31, 2013 at 6:10 pm

      All these isnt necessary… Sorry but why do i get this feeling you are a Genny fan who seems insecure about her(Genny)’s status? I apologize if thats not the case but saying things like “God knows what Genny through” angry that some people might “rate Omotola higher than Genny” when this article isnt even about her is a bit strange to me..

      And i think Omotola is in shape.. Keep your “health reasons” advice to yourself yea, Thank you..

      • Lolu August 31, 2013 at 7:26 pm

        @Hope there’s no point denying the facts above. Nigerians adore marriage to their own detriment n as long as someone is married they will be exalted over the unmarried. The moment Genevieve gets married or even starts dating someone publicly pls believe me omotola will be distant history. It will be Genevieve dis Genevieve dat. Omotola has realized how much nigerians value the “family picture” n thats why she’s flaunting hers now. And honestly, thats d only reason she’s getting this much recognition. Are you all really trying to say that there are no nigerian women who are successful in both their careers and their family lives as well? What’s all the hype about?

      • Jia September 2, 2013 at 5:37 am

        @ Hope
        Hi Omoni!

    • zsa zsa August 31, 2013 at 10:16 pm

      Tooooooniiiiii!!!! LOL, u bad o! Wetin do colored contacts? i dey wear am o and i consider myself averagely smart lol. As for the bad weaves, no comment.
      I get your point, the whole “she is still married despite……” can be over played but you and i know that these are the issues that thrive in that environment. That is probably why Genevieve doesn’t get as much kudos. To Omoni, Omotola seems to have the odds stacked against her but she is still relevant and most importantly her marriage is still “intact”. Thats the Nigerian we have come to know.

  • delsie August 31, 2013 at 6:25 pm

    This babes desperation is on high heels! Enough already. Appreciate Omo T but leave other marriages out of it. Backlash!!!!!!!!

  • Thatgidigirl August 31, 2013 at 6:49 pm

    Tacky write up! I puked in my mouth while reading it. I love Omotola but Omoni kinda sounds like someone with an inferiority complex.

  • Partyrider August 31, 2013 at 7:08 pm

    The subtle shade to other actresses though..Lol

  • Ha August 31, 2013 at 7:48 pm

    BellaNaija you guys are becoming shameless in your quest to drive traffic to ur blog. Its been one omotola post or the other since this week. U see how few the comments on her topics are becoming? I’m sure u expected more. Its called overexposure. Ppl are losing interest. U r rather doing her a disservice. Keep it up n one of these days if u get up to five comments sef ul be lucky. Hiss.

  • nene August 31, 2013 at 7:49 pm

    as much i’m not an omoni obili fan and i don’t like her in movies, she has always looked up to omotola. i read an interview she gave when she first started acting and she had praises for omotola, particularly the marriage aspect
    (omoni also got married as a teenager). also doris simeon also said she looked up to omotola as a married actress who is still releveant, so i guess omoni has a point but it comes across as famzing.

  • kokoqueen August 31, 2013 at 8:48 pm

    Mediocrity is when we say a woman having a superb Family translate to her being a superb actress……it is our responsibility as women to marry our career with our home…the fact that Taylor swift changes guys like pads doesn’t make her a poor music star….with all Omoni’s blabbing…..I can see that there is no hope for Nollywood…..an industry that celebrates mediocrity….what a shame!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!111

    • Boma September 1, 2013 at 8:26 am

      And your point after all your blabbing is what? That omotola isn’t a good actress? You need to shut it mam! Even the corpse of methuselah knows that omotola is not just a good actress , she’s a GREAT ACTRESS. Your own beef no work , Oya go think well and come with another. Smh!

  • Ronke August 31, 2013 at 8:53 pm

    I am so upset that people calling this famzing! Seriously? This is retarded and very discriminatory. I recall Ramsey Noah saying things about a female artiste being this and that and it was fine? Because he’s a dude talking about a female? When actors look up to other actors and hail them its fine? Then when a female looks up to or appreciates another female it’s famzing? Totally RETARTED!
    Omoni oboli my Resoect for you just went 100%! I never was a fan but this piece is intelligent and accurate. You have chosen a wonderful person ( Omotola) to eugolise , watch and see how you too will be celebrated! Ignore the rowdy comments , its either divorced or single upset girls who feel this is a personal jab or just insecure girls! Ladies who are secure( not necessarily married) and are intelligent to see and understand will appreciate your depth. God bless you and God bless the Queen Omotola.

  • Ronke August 31, 2013 at 8:54 pm

    ….respect…

  • fred August 31, 2013 at 9:05 pm

    Nigerians and PrIDE, and yet we wonder why we can’t move forward… So bcos Omoni said something about omotola it’s famzing eh, all the people talking trash here just can’t handle the truth. After the AGN honors omotola, Ini Edo paid Respect to omotola on twitter, omoni has always been an admirer.. I guess if she was talking about u know who we won’t have a lot of people calling it “famzing” or claiming she insulted the divorced people.. And so u haterz know, if omotola was still single, she’d be in the news DAILY as the hottest chick dudes r dying to meet, imagine the attention she gathers even as a married woman.

    • Hope September 1, 2013 at 3:27 pm

      This! I happen to think if she was single she would be “in your face” even more..

  • Chyke August 31, 2013 at 9:36 pm

    Pretentious woman. @Toni you said it all. Omoni could have praised Omotola and leave other people’s marriages. Her desperation to become more popular made her say these things in pretence. Yes she needs something from Omotola and could have gone to see her privately. All we hear all the time is OmoT’s marriage and nothing more. Many of her colleagues are divorced, how is that her business? Is Joke Silva not married?

    • Toni September 1, 2013 at 5:31 am

      No one knows Omoni. This is the most comments she has ever gotten on this blog.lol.

  • jennietobbie August 31, 2013 at 9:48 pm

    women, we are our biggest problem. May God help us, because this negative energy is pathetic. I CAN’T!!!! SMH

    Thank you, Omoni, for appreciating your fellow actress. Continue to be kind. And Omosexy, that’s for being the WHOLE package. There is no excuse for anyone not to balance family and career. You’ve set a very good example for us. Well done, ladies!

  • ..just saying August 31, 2013 at 9:55 pm

    Errr…Did she just call Omotola’s husband a pilot? That guy has not flown a plane in several eons…Oh Please.

    • Boma September 1, 2013 at 8:19 am

      Hello excuse me? he flies private jets sweetie. He flies for pan african airlines. They fly only shell executives .
      I’m an air hostess with this airline. Capt Ekeinde is actually the Unit flight safety manager! You people should get your facts before coming online to type.

  • priscilla August 31, 2013 at 10:20 pm

    Please I’m tired of Omotola omotola everywhere without no good work out to portray her so called spectacular talent.is she discussing how fabulous Omotola marriage is or her career?they are atleast 5 better actresses than her.omoni oboli it’s a good thing you adore her but you have no place to decide who is Nollywood queen phssst

  • KarmenSimms September 1, 2013 at 11:18 am

  • tybay September 1, 2013 at 11:38 am

    The 2nd to last paragraph is just irrelevant to this article. It comes off as if the main reason she even wrote this at all is to market the movies she’s appeared in…

  • Hope September 1, 2013 at 2:39 pm

    @Lolu…Abeg, go and take ur bitterness somewhere else or better still join a nigeria movie form and create a thread about Genny.. You are talking like OmoT is only recognized for being married.. But let me tell something you might have forgot, she is also a brilliant actress and has several awards on her plate. (She is still getting them)… You say it aint how far but how well.. Well true, and OmoT has both baby!! She has longevity and she is also good at what she does..Genny has had her time, and even when it seems Genny was overrunning her she came back, re-branded herself and improved her skills more..That aint no joke!!

    • Dolly September 2, 2013 at 12:45 am

      Hope darl,
      These bishes gon learn today lol.
      What these shenanigans don’t know is Omotola (Hate all you want) is a true example of a successful woman. The dreams of every woman is a thriving career, loving husband, adorable kids and positive image.
      She is quite successful at everything and challenges every bish out there to make it work. She inspires you to believe you can have it all, you can juggle it and make it work. I mean honestly if Omotola isn’t a bad bish then who the F is?
      Omotola stays winning…..these desperate bishes stays mad, ha!

    Wow, it’s interesting to see the reaction of a woman admiring another woman. And, every woman doesn’t have to be on oprah’s level or Michelle Obama to give her credit. Honestly, Nigerians are not used to admiring and giving others credit. If anything, they are thinking if how they are better
    or surpass or even say kini big deal, she has nothing special. Whether the writer is famzing or not, she took her time to say good things about a other woman, that itself is humility. And, fro. That it sounds like she knows Omotola personally and respects her drive. Omotola has kept a
    positive image for years, and yes marriage is no joke. So, to see a woman who seems HAPPILY married is beautiful after many years. It’s also admirable for a woman to combine a career in entertainment and also family and seems like she’s balancing it well. Also, Omotola pushes herself, and spoken out about important issues. Can we Nigerians simply learn to appreciate someone’s effort in small and big ways. God bless you, Omotola and your family.

    P.S I will love to see olu Jacobs and JOke Silva, another couple I admire.

    Oh my God! I wish God could silence all these haters of the Queen of Nollywood for once. Imagine these ugly beasts? You people deserves to be kept in the Zoo not only zoo self, make dem put una for forest to eat grass, stupid people.
    I’m still wondering what you ugly things stand to gain for hating someone that doesn’t even know you exist. Can’t you appreciate good things for once? Can’t you for once cherish and value what you have? What is ur f..king problem?
    Omotola is good and her fellow actress appreciated her, so what’s the big deal? why are you condemning Omoni? come to think of it, Omoni is far better than your so called Genevieve even Funke Akindele is better than ur so called Geneveieve…make una go kill una selves.
    The worst of all be say una nor get work, no husband, no pikin, no acheivement, no boyfriend self, na ashewo una dey do up and down, to crown it all, una too ugly so why una no go jealous Omotola?
    Keep shining Queen of Nollywood!!!!!

      The two people I have seen winchi winchi eyes act better than are Van Vicker & Regina Askia. She’s an extra (in films) who is not memorable. She should and go have several seats on one of Captain Ekeinde’s planes.

    Omotola is a woman I have much respect for because it is not easy to balance an acting, music career and family.
    But please , to say that she is a better actor than Genevieve is ridiculous and ludicrous.
    It goes to show you how Nigerians hire workers!

    You ladies just come here and use other people’s name to write out your evil conscience! Omoni appreciates Omotola! It is not easy to keep a home and act and the truth be told , Omoni and
    Omotola have kept their home front. Those actresses that have not been able to keep their homes and are divorcing up and down good luck! I am not an Omotola fan and do not watch her movies, but if another actress decides to sing her praises, then excellent .
    I am an Omoni Oboli fan and I believe in her work,so all you haters take a seat and always think about the best in others.
