    The show isn’t reality to me. More of a documentary. she should do less narration, and just let the camera’s roll. She should check out the kardashians for ideas. that’s more realistic.

    • Dammy

      January 10, 2013 at 11:41 am

      I totally agree with you., she should narrate less,then maybe say a little after a part or after a scene but its good, something different

      perhaps form the hangle you are looking at it from, for me, there is every bit of realness in it. it really show her every day life and i must say that it is an interesting one.

      I especially couldn’t relate to the part of her shedding tears when she was in France (i think) and she on the phone with her son who told her he was missing her. Am like is she for real? Crying cos your son said he’s missing you? Omo na naija we dey abeg!!!!

    • keechi

      January 16, 2013 at 7:38 am

      LMAOOOO!!! But in case u dont know, there are some naija parents who love their kids very very much and EXPRESS it to them. That’s the thing with our naija parents, they love us but have a weird way of showing it…they cant express it coz that’s not how they were raised. But it’s a new generation my friend. But I understand you.

    • Preshbee

      January 10, 2013 at 3:23 pm

      My thoughts exactly, she’s just acting a script. There’s no spontaneity in what she’s doing, all planned out activities.

    First to comment!! Yiiipeeeee!!! Oya, peeps let’s hear your opinions. *waiting*

    I think d show is over scripted,tho Omotola is always lookin glamorous.

  5. ForestM

    January 10, 2013 at 11:16 am

    Very unrealistic! did’nt enjoy the show i must confess! i believe she should stick with her role as an actress! ‘Omotola the real me”- there’s absolutely nothing real about your character. i thought i would see more of actions rather than narrations. But very nice Production anyways!

  6. Chi

    January 10, 2013 at 11:18 am

    No reality about the show. She should take a cue from the Kardashians. The whole thing is scripted and looks like she is acting. We want to see her in her natural element- at home, interacting with family, basically her day to day life activities not just the glamourous side of things. I watched two episodes and stopped watching. One positive thing though – she looked stunning in both episodes I saw.

    • Lilz

      January 10, 2013 at 12:26 pm

      you just wrote my mind..i watched it just twice and could not stand it any longer…its far from real and BORING!!!!!

    • deji

      January 10, 2013 at 12:43 pm

      I best to defer, the way i look at it, it is her real every day life, not scripted at all, the show is da bomb.

    She is beautiful no doubt but its definitely not a reality show. Shows just the glamorous side of her. I hardly watch it now especially because she laughs unnecessarily during the narrations and she’s just acting the whole thing through, making it so nauseatingly fake.

    • Chinel

      January 10, 2013 at 11:57 pm

      lol @ “so nauseatingly fake”. I can only imagine……………….if only I can understand the purpose of having a reality show that doesn’t portray the realities of life. There are people who would have appreciated the time, attention and benefit put into this.

    its d worse reality show av cin,dts if i shud call it a reality show o!in d episode i watched her son & husband wr camera cautious as if dey wr acting drama.

    i have bin watching and it doesnt look real @all, she doesnt even sound real.more like she’s faking and trying to hard.+ her pants r 2 tight coz everytime she gets up she always has to pull up to. And i love her coz she’s always laughing *cute*

    I watch the show mainly for makeup, hair and Omotola’s styling inspiration and she hasn’t failed at all. I love love her accessories as well.

    As per the show though, I would love to see the real Omotola, as in unscripted scenes.

    Still watching. Lovely pictures.

    Kids have invaded Bellanaija. They always want to be the first to comment and are not ashamed to state it like the juvies they are are. Their comments are full of hate and sourgrape-like. I miss the mature readers.

    • K

      January 10, 2013 at 12:47 pm

      Are you saying mature readers can’t disagree? Why does maturity have to equate with “being nice?| That is a fallacy. Sure, people could be more tactful in expressing opinions, but again, that is a CHOICE they make. It is only sycophants who only say nice things all the time. Choices choices. This is not a fan page. And instead of moaning, either go to a “mature” blog somewhere else, or post your own positive opinions so readers can have another POV instead of coming to preach fallacies.

    very scripted show. it comes off as very fake and uninteresting. if she adopts more elements of fun or something it would be more interesting to watch. if this is the real her, then she’s boring AF!

  18. Dolled up

    Didn’t find it interesting. Too scripted and way too much Narration for my taste.

      I watched the first 2 episodes on youtube.u can check them out there.
      As for the show,BORING is a nice way to put it,very fake and scripted.the 2nd episode had me rofl like really! Reality show ko,the fake omotola ni.

  20. wise fool

    January 10, 2013 at 11:41 am

    Too few celebrities in Nigeria…same names recycled over and over again. I tire

  21. obi-talk

    January 10, 2013 at 11:42 am

    Its GOOD, I always watch it when it comes on but it would be better if it showed more of her home life, her kids and dealing with family issues. Cause Nigerian extended family can be interesting most times. Like we would like to know if she has a gate-man, who are her neighbours does she attend her children’s sport events and stuff like that. that’s what makes great reality TV. that’s what people want to watch.

    • emmyjah

      January 10, 2013 at 12:46 pm

      Well said!,The show didn’t just click at all.Just selling her personality and not entertaining me.

  22. Banke

    January 10, 2013 at 11:44 am

    Lovely pictures and lovely makeup.

    I’m on the fence about the ‘realness’ of the show. Some scenes you can tell was scripted and some not like the guy at the airport praising Omotla. That was clearly spontaneous and on point. It’s good entertainment, I’ll keep watching.

  23. marbie

    January 10, 2013 at 11:44 am

    The nice part of the show is the fact that she always looks goergeous but she needs to relax and make It more natural and the camera men still have a lot of work to do,they need to learn how to tilt their camerras well.The editors should also sit up and do a great job because her fans deserve the best

  24. Kiki

    January 10, 2013 at 11:48 am

    Think she’s so fake on the show and always looking glamorous!
    I watched one episode where she in England, went to a caribbean show and some black dude was hitting on her, funny the dude had no idea who she was!
    Then I wondered where is she a celebrity, Only Naija not the world like the Kardashians!

    • Rukky

      January 10, 2013 at 12:21 pm

      Oh shut up! OMOTOLA IS KNOWN EVERYWHERE!!! She’s not real but they put that in the show? Even Beyonce wasn’t known by the dancers who came to do the ” who run the world” dance! HATER -.

    • deji

      January 10, 2013 at 12:34 pm

      The fact is Omotola is a super duper star, so what is your point, some will even ask you who is Obama when asked who he is, but that doesn’t mean he’s not a known figure. stop the hate, omosexsy is a star and you know it.

    sincerely i think the show is borin.its a pity that this is comin from me coz i love omtola but the show is so fake.i don`t love the omotola i see in the show.prefer her in her films.she speaks to fast and in a very unsexy way.pls do some thing abt it

  31. tope

    January 10, 2013 at 11:56 am

    i love every minute of the show mainly because of the fact that it’s real, i wonder why anyone will say otherwise.

  32. bigzgal

    January 10, 2013 at 12:00 pm

    I have seen some episodes of d show but am not feeling it yet. She is just showing us the glamorous life of a movie star. We want to see the real omotola not another Nollywood movie jare, we want to see her aS wife and mother…we want see her doing chores, we want see how she takes her kids to school,we want to see her settle squabbles among her kids and many more. This is a reality TV show and not a docu drama. She should take a look at Kimora’s Kadashian’s and many more. We are getting bored! But thank God for make-up and hair sha, at least we something to look forward to if d content is flat.

  33. oyeniyi omolola

    January 10, 2013 at 12:00 pm

    D fact is d program is nt realistic @ all n it meant 2 be a reality show, it shouldn’t be all abt her alone, it should be abt her hubby n kids, I think she is not getting it, she shd try n learn 4rm Tia n Tamara show, I guess she W̶̲̥̅̊ȋ̊ƪƪ improve,

    The show is like crap. Its’ extremely very boring and unrealistic. Its obvious she’s just acting out. It’s kinda sad cause i expected much from the show. I personally used to see her in high regard and all. But as a result of the show am just cin a very fake, selfish and unrealistic individual. It’s far from a reality show, it’s just an advertisement of herself. She should have just stuck to acting!

  59. May

    January 10, 2013 at 12:50 pm

    2 words to describe the show, Not Real!! She should let things flow. We are not dumb, we don’t need a narrative. Plus, its all about work work work, no family life, no embarassing moments! She wakes up in the morning looking camera ready! Oh come on!!! The show should be renamed, omotola, my glam life! On to the next please.

    I love Omotola as a movie star but dz reality aby scripted show is annoying and awkward. Is so unnatural and fake.she speaks so fast and laughs wen is not neede. Reality show is all about U,not travelling aspect only.If she’s not ready 2 include her family, den we are still watchn one of her movies. Apart frm where she narrates her dress sense is very poor. Because she’s my number1 movie star ,I will continue watchn.

  65. wale

    January 10, 2013 at 1:01 pm

    Its a good start, though not yet perfect. but i want to see Omotola Cooking for her family,and also more shots from her home than in jamaica today,london tomorrow. also we want to see her family more.

  66. daniel james

    January 10, 2013 at 1:05 pm

    I score the show 10/10, omotola is a brilliant and beautiful woman, seeing her do her thing is such a great privilege.

  67. molarah

    January 10, 2013 at 1:05 pm

    I think the show is as real as they come…

    I don’t understand the fuss people are making about some of the parts looking scripted. If you watched the very first episode of Kimora’s show, you would agree it was scripted. I believe the people on the show are still trying to ease into the reality of being followed around constantly by cameras. And who wouldn’t? Even you guys that are complaining – admit it, your behaviour slightly adjusts when you realize there is a camera nearby.

    So you’ve not gotten round to see the home front – cheer up, its probably coming up in the later episodes.

    And people, ease up on the negativity. Hating brings wrinkles. Be happy!

  68. julius

    watching her show makes me really wanna see it over and over again, every minute of it is worth my time even though i hardly have time to seat an watch tv, but when it comes to omotola, i can do anything and deprive myself of anything to see it.

  71. Sexxie

    January 10, 2013 at 1:25 pm

    Omotola: The real me. An entertaining narrativeTV show hosted by an entrepreneur, an actress, a humanitarian, a songstress, a wife & a mother, Omotola Jolade Ekeinde period! Nothing reality abt her show. Wouldn’t have gone beyond d ‘pilot’ episode if it was on US tv. That said, she is a good actress no doubt.

    I have known the name omotola just like as at the time i realise i am me, she’s been there doing great thing for close to 2 decades now, and still running the game, who can beat that? the show is just too sweet like the Yoruba people will say, o dun gan niiiii.

    This is just Sad! I swear Nigerians are the most critical people on the planet! After I read about 20 comments I decided to go on YouTube and see for myself. Suffice to say that show is good. As good as any “reality tv” show. You think the Kardashan’s are being real? Please! She was as real as reality tv type person which means her acting was good! plus the lady even has such a sense of humour. Gosh! Half of these people trashing the show here have achieved next to nothing in the entirety of their lives. See how some can’t even type a simple straight correct line of English! Kai!

    @may u said it all jor even d kardashians or kimora dey show when dey wake in d morning well sha she is trying it isn’t easy but honestly i watch dat show to see more of her makeup hair clothes which are d d only perfect tyn in dat show

  85. Daisy

    January 10, 2013 at 2:20 pm

    I was especially surprised by the show’s lack of content. The fact that it was a so called reality TV show that didn’t feature her in her home, or show her kids or husband was a let down. Anyway, thank God there are always alternative channels to change to.


    January 10, 2013 at 2:26 pm

    pls nigerians let always say the true, so dat the show can improve. is possible she is reading it.
    the show is bbbbbbbbbbbbbbboooooooooooooooooorrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrriiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiinnnnnnnnnnnnggggggggggggggggg. if she rily wants to do a reality, let her be real. am sorry but i cant sit n watch it.

  87. Jenny

    The show should be titled: ‘OMOTOLA, THE FAKE ME. IS that a reality show or a documentary?

    Chai! People are wicked oh! What???? Omotola’s show is Boring? Liars! People just love to drag people down sha! Anyway, whatever you say, it’s STILL the show with the highest rating on AFRICA MAGIC EVER! And Africa magic is still the most watched channel on DSTV! Kardashian’s show started slow. Omotola’s stated better. It’s very interesting if ure not expecting VIOLENCE!

  90. Anuli

    January 10, 2013 at 3:06 pm

    Okay people, wait up!!!! The reality industry in Nigeria is just starting up (i may be wrong) it takes courage to let a camera follow you all day and still act normal and you dont expect her husband and kids who are not always under the spotlight to act like they are used to this. Her show’s still in its early stage and given time, they’ll all adjust to it. I’m sure it was not effortless in the US when it first began.
    Omotola, i’ve not watched ur show before but i do respect you and the fact that you chose to sail uncharted territory. I believe you’ll get better.

    I have not seen the show but I must say for Omotola taking the bold step to do a reality, thumps up to her. What is the defination of a reality show? Some of you are talking about the Kardashian’s like that is the only reality show on tv. In a reality tv show, you only let people see what you want them to see, hear and know. If the directors are okay with that, then they go ahead with it. In her case, they must be okay with it. The article also suggests that the first episode has the highest viewing rate on Africa magic and the show consistently attracts a high viewing rate. Even in America, shows that we love so much are discontinued because the viewing rate is low. Why don’t we say well done to our own when they are doing well instead of thrashing them. If you don’t like the show, then stay away from it. It is very obvious other people love it!

    • Social butterfly

      January 10, 2013 at 4:22 pm

      INFACT shola may GOD Bless you! Really well said. I thought I was the only one who felt like this!!! I have watched that show from episode one and IM ADDICTED! Why do we love to tear our own in Africa? Omotola’s show is wayyyyyy better than some reality shows I’ve seen on E! I’ve heard most of my colleagues all discussing the show in the office on Fridays after Thursday’s broadcast. So I’m wondering where are all these people who rushed here to write its boring from?
      I agree the producers need to chill on the narration but otherwise? NO OTHER SHOW IN AFRICA COMES CLOSE!

    i tink the show is okay…….but i would really like to see her as a mother, wife etc……i tink thats where she got it all wrong….she has only showed us her life in the fab lane!….she should work on the nxt it wud be more fun and realistic!.all the same its interesting…@ least she has set a very good pace!

  94. Phoebe

    January 10, 2013 at 3:30 pm

    Maybe they should change the show’s name.
    I’ve not watched the show but from the comments, if “she’s always well made up” then the show is not about the real her.
    I love this lady, good actress.

  95. Godfrey

    January 10, 2013 at 3:42 pm

    From the ads that preceded the airing, what I heard her say is; ‘When the make up is off and the lights goes off, then comes the real me’. This made me to expect something more original than the scripting that is being aired. Besides, I watched it with my wife and surprisingly just before I asked her, she asked me what is the show about ‘cos I could not connect to it after watching for over ten minutes. I like her daring spirit to do something new besides her regulars she is known for, but I will encourage her to make it more original and African so people can connect to it.


    January 10, 2013 at 3:51 pm

    I only watched it once. Show was as nauseating as hell. After dt, I returned to my E! jare. No time 😀

    January 10, 2013 at 3:53 pm

    I just watched an episode on youtube and UI’m hooked! I love Omotola! Very good showwwww!!! Scripted or not scripted! She is one to watch on your tv.. Pls i hope the guy on tv keeps downloading episodes .. I really love the show.

    i wonder why some people will find it hard to appreciate when someone is doing good, we Nigerians most time beahve as if we know best. A friend of mine who came from the Texas with me down to Nigeria find it interesting, that makes me to wonder why someone out there is hating on omotola. She has done and still doing good, and we should respect that. If we cannot appreciate our self, i wonder who will.

  100. anjorin

    January 10, 2013 at 4:42 pm

    Omotola is the shining light of Nigeria and i am proud of her any day anytime. When she came with this show, she blew and still blowing my mind away. Right about now, i am getting ready to go home so i could watch the show.

  101. hollaronke

    January 10, 2013 at 4:48 pm

    omosexy,my candid advice is for you to fire your director and producer or whoever is mixing up movie and reality show for yah. i like yu o,dnt mess it up plzzzzzz! lolz

  102. RayHot

    January 10, 2013 at 4:50 pm

    She’s far from being real. It’s all acting, boring and she makes a lot of grammatical errors which are never edited. This so called show is not sustainable and I’m sure its life span won’t last for a year. Try something else aunty. Plus what’s it with her permanent undergrowth on her front hairs? Makes me wonder if her hair never relaxes… must be some steel sponged hair she’s got

    • sultry

      January 10, 2013 at 7:15 pm

      u pple should take a chill pill.. we’ve only seen like 4 or so episodes so relax..she’ll probably feature her family later….and pls stop with the comparisons to the kardashians who have had like 6 or so seasons…she’s just started…dis is her first. abeg cut her some slack

  103. bidemi

  105. bolokale

    January 10, 2013 at 5:14 pm

    the truth of the matter is if we ask opinion of people about the Kardashians majority will be negative and don’t you for one moment think all this reality shows are real they are all scripted.Just much more than each other.I think Omotola is about to be the next Kim they hate they show but can’t stop watching.You’ll be shocked the amount of people that watch the show,same goes to the Kardashians.

  106. munilicious

    January 10, 2013 at 5:53 pm

    I’ve watched a few episodes and if u can get this to her I’d like her to know that the name doesn’t imply what the show is about. Its titled the real me yet she has not shot any in Nigeria/Lagos which is her base neither has she shot anything with her family so my question for her is “WHAT EXACTLY IS THE REAL YOU ABOUT LONDON,JAMAICA,GHANA ETC”???

    • Tesie

      January 11, 2013 at 2:13 pm

      You exactly spoke my mind. Needless to talk about the “unreal me” in everything shez has being doing. She should have copied Kardashian well before coming up with hers. Albeit i love Omosexy but that won’t stop me from criticizing her mistakes.

    Dat woman has money to waste. She has watched too much tv and failed to learn d positive stuffs. I know she wishes she was single sometimes. The thing wey dey hungry dat woman no dey naija. Very boring and fake. Focus on ur family and stop walking up and down busying for nothing.

    Omotola is just like Beyonce, whatever she does, will be absolutely interesting. If it means that by just looking at omotola sleeping, i am satisfied by it, cos she is a screen goddess.

  118. iyanya

    January 11, 2013 at 9:29 am

    The show i saw lastnight and the previous ones are lovely, just seeing how omotola does her thing is enough for me. For goodness sake, we are not talking about an ordinary person here, it’s the biggest star we are talking about. I am loving every minute of it.

    January 11, 2013 at 9:53 am

    Seriously i love Omotola she is a very good actress and she is someone i admire alot, but if i am to speak to her she should stick to her acting and her singing, she is a great actress a lovely singer, but for reality tv……… way……i watched it but it didnt keep me glued, i saw 2 episodes and i was tired.

  123. Jummy

    January 11, 2013 at 12:03 pm

It’s one of the best things I’ve seen on african tv in a looooooooong time since the days of checkmate etc… That’s the kind of excitement it brought. I’m already a disciple.

    I didn’t know Omotola was this unintelligent she talks, expresses herself, gesticulates and laughs unnecessarily in conversations like a 5th grader, heck in one of the episodes she referred to a Blazer as a Suit and the Asian guys had to correct her. Embarrassing, this Reality show is exposing her real self indeed.

    Ok lemme start by sayin dat,omotola’s is a very beautiful woman,n she’s sexy………….without slender thighs.but her show is awesome……….LY FAKE n Boring!!!!!!!!!!. It’s so obvious dat it is scripted,dere’s nothin real abt her show,she’s never shown us her house or kids,it’s always movin 4rm 1 country 2 another.finally, I have actually learnt dat the real omotola’s can b quite sassy,bitchy n rude!!!. Overall I don’t like d show n I stopped watching after episode 3. Wish dry had given dis opportunity to tonto or Karen of “BBa” wud have bin more entertaining. Guess I’ll be chilln 4 d next season of d kardashians ,no one can Eva b like dem.

    All these “reality” shows are scripted. This one was just too fake, because it seemed almost like they did takes for several parts especially Faustina….. Somehow stars are more glamourous the less we actually know about them. She should stop now before she is overexposed.

If this is the real omotola someone needs to ask her how she takes care of her home(kids and Husband)cos she is never there!who checks their home work?sch performance?who cooks dinner atleast?who cares for her mans”needs” ?who makes sure that the family goes to church and dat the kidsa are well behaved?pls the show is BORING!
