So Heartwarming! Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde put a Smile on this Widow’s Face with a Home Makeover



Nigerian movie star Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde has made a difference in the lives of so many widows and orphans through her Give and Let Give initiative.

To wrap up the year in 2018, Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde helped renovate the home of a widow in just four days.

The widow, Folashade Chijioke, was nominated after many entries via emails by another widow. Some of the criteria for selection were that the widow being nominated must be a working woman, giving back to the community and raising her kids.

Folashade’s home was given a face life with new furniture, a new paint job, bathroom fittings, an upgraded kitchen, bunk beds and cozy mattresses, a TV, fridge, and gas cooker.

Folashade and her four kids were taken from the hotel they had been staying at during the renovation and they were shown their new home on the 31st of December. They were overjoyed.

    This is amazing. Comfort goes a long away. Now they will be able to think and do other things in such comfortable environment. Our environment and comfort really helps an individual in pushing to a greater height, not every time food food and money. This is wonderful Omotola.

    Omotola has been a notable figure in the Nigeria movie industry. She has been starred in more movies than I count, well over 300 movies to be precise.

    Achieving such feets is obviously phenomenal and the fact that she’s kind in nature makes it even more beautiful. Her act of generosity is born of an inner beauty.

    Am glad that in a world where many have lost hope, there’s still a few that looks back and realise that the reason for our existence is to be there 4 one another.

    Thank you Omotola. God bless you for this wonderful thing you did for this family. A beautiful environment helps the mind. And most times because we have little to cover food, clothes and rent, no attention is paid to the environment. God bless you Omotola. God really bless you and yours.
