A Diva on Stage & on the Mic – Scenes & Pics from Omotola’s “Me, Myself & Eyes” Album Release Party

Published

 on

Just as she promised, all eyes were definitely on Omotola at her exclusive album release party. On the 24th of September 2010 at Eko Hotel in Lagos, Omotola treated a cross-section of her fans including politicians, musicians, actors, actresses and socialites to a thrilling showcase of her new album “Me, Myself & Eyes“.

Guests at the event included Chief Segun Osoba, Professor Pat Etomi, Abba Folawiyo, Grace Egbagbe, Florence Ita Giwa, Dele Momodu, Mofe and Dorothy Atake, 2Face Idibia, Sasha, AY, Chidi Mokeme, Stella Damasus, Munachi Abii, Omawumi and many others.

The event got off to an exciting start as veteran comedian Ali Baba who attended the event with his wife, Mary hit the stage and delivered a series of rib-cracking jokes. Up next was a documentary on Omotola’s life and career so far. The movie highlighted all the facets of Omotola’s life – as a mother, wife, musician and actress.

The next item on the agenda was the debut of her new video “Stop The War, Stop The War“. The song which features rapper Modenine was inspired by Omotola’s charity work and the poverty she has witnessed during her humanitarian trips she had taken to various war-torn African countries. The stage transitioned from the video into a live performance of the song.

The rest of the event was filled with lots of comedy and performances by the diva – Omotola. Omotola thoroughly enjoyed her time on stage and made various costume changes in between performances. From a black jumpsuit to a black and white dress and finally a red mini dress.

The final act of the evening was the cutting of the special “Me, Myself & Eyes” cake. Omo-T’s husband, Captain Matthew Ekeinde stood by his wife as she cut the cake, signifying a new chapter in her career.

The next day, Omotola was back on stage at the “Give and Let Give” gifting concert. The concert took place at Fantasy Land in Ikoyi, Lagos. The event was free and open to the public – there were performances  by Sound Sultan, Kore , Harrisong and Asha Gangali. All proceeds and gifts will be donated to the less privileged.

    were are the celebs..it looked like a very low key event to me…why all the unnecessary hype?? omotola is highly overrated abeg!!!! she needs to take a chill pill and take care of her children and stop running around like desperately!! jack of all trades master of none!!!

    • MiaJadore

      September 29, 2010 at 10:53 pm

      I for one don’t care for her music, but your rant sounds like you didn’t get invited to your junior high slumber party and now you’re raw for life. Speaking of ‘chill pill’, get yourself a happy one will ya ?

      I’m not a fan either, but here’s a reply to your rant:
      Her husband is not complaining, and who said her children are not being taken care of? Ever heard of super woman? That is exactly what she is. She’s happily married (apparently her husband is so supportive) with children and at the peak of her career. If i were you, i would stop hating and take notes from her.

    September 29, 2010 at 7:23 pm

    Nice but some of her outfits look so tacky. She’s trying too hard. she is a pretty girl that has refused to grow into adulthood and still trying to live her childhood fantasies. she should just face acting. a good attempt though

    Please my people that one is good in one vocation doesnt restrict him/her from exploring other areas. Omotola didnot become a super actress in a day, she became better over the years. Let’s encourage her to do what she has passion for, with time she will become all that we want her to be in that area. Omotola kudos, I like your courage and just like u said in silverbird interview, you will always find some people who accept your music, not everybody will. Peace.

    September 29, 2010 at 8:48 pm

    I really do appreciate Omotola as an actress but I think her age and look are not quite appropriate for the music industry #justsaying

    • Teefah

      September 30, 2010 at 11:44 am

      When u say her age and look aren’t appropriate, then what age and look is appropriate for the music industry? #justasking

    The girl is just being unnecessarily stubborn with the die hard attitude on this music thing,the people she paraded there for support dont buy CDs.where are the young people who buy CDs.And for someone without credibility to put a table for her album launch at 1 million naira tells you that she is just a dreamer,One million to see all that funny looking outfit i can see there? Beyonce did not sell a table US$7,000 for her sophomore album launch.Them say na fly when no hear word dey follow dead body enter grave…Plainly this girl is just irritating.

    Omotola is doing her thing no doubt, Madonna doesnt ve the world’s best voice.
    Yvonne Ekwere is cute, like her infectious smile and her nice set of pins.
    I think Sasha really looked nice as well.

    Munachi is one beautiful woman. she has such great features. Linda Ekeji looked glam as well.
    Cheers.

      my dear nkem what more can we say i cant believe her publicist allowed her wear that thingy its so NO NO!

  24. Hilda

    September 30, 2010 at 8:33 am

    My take, Chidi Mokeme needs to stop with the shoe must-go-with-shirt thing, it’s old now, don’t you think; so tacky.
    Omot is relentless and fiesty when she wants something, this is the second album even with the failure of the first, she’s still pushing so i think it’s time for people to let her be and do what she wants. Has long as she’s happy, we’re all good. The red dress was way too short.
    Isio Wanogho she’s super fine…..God just spent some more time on some people.

    I read some comments here that are not warranted. Why all these PHD (Pull her down syndrom)? Somebody is doing what she love to do and here some of you are condemning her. Go out there and try what she’s doing or is anyone stopping you? Many of you will go to shows and pay heavily where pig and dogs are performing as long as they’re white. What is wrong in me naming my price when i want to sell something. It is either you buy or you look the other way. Abeg! leave this lady alone and let her do what makes her happy instead of you who are not better than her sitting in your room condemning those potraying our image in good light. Would you people have prefered she’s a prostitute?

    there are a whole lot of haters on this page and it is so not nice. why hate???? when has it become a crime to follow your dreams?? she has her husband beside her and i think thats all that matters. evrybody has a chance in life to follow his dreams so why not do urs rather than hate hate hate. na wah oh!
    for those talking about chidi’s sweaty underarms. May God forgive u for all the derogatory comments. so human beings are not allowed to sweat again. or u have not seen sweat that can over come anti-perspirant. cut some of these actors some slack please. they are freaking human beings like you and i for crying out loud. whats with all this overrated expectations from them and thier lifestyles????

      September 30, 2010 at 11:38 pm

      abeg chillax. life is not that serious. you people should stop throwing the word hate around carelessly. everybody mustn’t like something, people must surely have varying opinions on a matter because God created us differently and we have different tastes.

      p/s: Chidi Mokeme needs deodorant quick!

    • SweetSerenity

      October 4, 2010 at 9:56 pm

      my dear person, yes there are anti-deodorant that can bypass sweats HOWEVER there are deodorants that are classified as CLINICAL that works for those with excessive sweat like Mr. Chidi Mokeme. If you chose a job in the public eye, please know that you will be put under a microscope, prodded and examined. This wan wey you take panadol for anoda persin headache, how far with the pain? LOL. The man looks sweaty, it is not a good look for someone who is supposedly a sexy symbol!

  40. chide...

    September 30, 2010 at 9:51 pm

    Omotola is a very good actress and the truth is most artistic persons have more than one visible talent……nothing wrong with her doing both, and she aint too old to sing either..her husband loves her and i think she is doing well for herself….the only snag is…….dont think she got what it takes for a career in music…the fact u can sing doesnt mean you have to release albums….

  41. NYCSEGEBABA

    September 30, 2010 at 10:26 pm

    That fade ogunro girl is nice…not been to naija in a while but some of those brothas in there need some work on their gear..the guy in the red shirt and damp “abiya” na wa o…my boy 2-face representing.

    Oh Stell!!! That dress is NOT it. Chidi i love you and you’re hot but those shoes are not. Hahaha…I love Omotola as an actress, but Ali Baba and his wife look like they were pissed for having to sit through the whole thing. Omo-sexy, why don’t you put all this energy into directing a block-buster aye.
