Veteran Nollywood actress Omotola Jalade Ekeinde who has entertained us for many decades, so her three years hiatus has not gone unnoticed.
According to her, for a long time, she couldn’t find a script that challenged and resonated with her until Alter Ego; the new movie which will premiere this Friday and make its cinema debut on July 21.
Every year you have someone asking me, “Omotola are you not doing movies again? Why are you not in movies?” but I said to myself until I find that project. It doesn’t have to be a multi-million naira project, but when I find that movie, that setup, that character that inspires me, I don’t mind even investing in it, but I will do it.
And luckily, after three years or more, “Alter Ego” came along. I had to work with them on the script, but that was something there. I saw a crew for the first time. In a long time I haven’t seen that in Nollywood, everybody is kind of like set in their ways. But I saw these guys who are ready to just push boundaries, and I am ready with them.
Now that she is back with the much talked about Alter Ego movie, we can’t help but wonder what this comeback will be like.
