Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde says she’ll be returning to the Music Studio Soon

Star actress Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde has disclosed that she’ll be returning to the music studio soon.

She made this known in an interview with Punch‘s Ademola Olonilua of Saturday Beats.

When asked if she’ll revisit her music career, she said:

You can call that my first love if you want. I know a lot of people get shocked when I say that I love singing more than acting, but that is just the truth and I would have to speak my truth. I know that people think I have not ‘blown’ (made it big) as a singer so they expect me to just say acting is my love, but I would shock the world soon.

She responded with “Oh! Of course.” when asked if her last statement meant she’ll be returning to the studio soon.

On why she took a break from Nollywood:

I was focusing on some other things which were based on building. I felt that it was the right time for the stakeholders in the industry to begin to invest in the industry aside from producing movies. My first love was not producing movies. I like real estate and I studied Estate Management. I actually do real estate as a business and I thought about how I could merge real estate and entertainment.

That is what I wanted to do. I wanted to do real estate in entertainment and that is what I fell back into. I just want to get properties and begin to think of the process of building cinemas, film studios or film villages.

On how she feels after winning AMVCA Best Actress:

I can’t capture the way I feel about winning the AMVCA award in one word. I feel like I have stayed away for so long and the project that I took was worth coming back for. It was a labour of love and it was really hard to do that project. Right now, it just feels great that I did the right thing and hopefully, I would find projects that would challenge me and would even be better than that.

    Friends and family should advise this woman. You can’t force yourself to be a singer. Drop it.
