NOLLYWOOD sweetheart, Omotola Jalade Ekehinde used to be the face of the Nigerian film industry in years past. Although still a celebrated actress in the growing industry, one can count on the fingertips the number of movies the alluring mother of four has appeared in recent times.
Just like her colleague, Jim Iyke, Omotola has revealed that the reason responsible for her absence on the movie scene is the inability of directors to pay her worth.

“Most can’t afford me, some can’t afford what it takes to have me on set. It is a new terrain, all will balance out soon,” Omotola said, during a question and answer session with her fans on Insta-story.
The ‘Blood Sister’ role interpreter further indulged her lovers by answering the question of why she included ‘Omosexy’ to her name and how she dealt with people’s perception of such a sensual name.
“My husband added ‘Omosexy’ to my name. I didn’t mind what people would perceive of me because of the name. People will always fall in line with what you present ultimately,” Omotola noted.
Married to Captain Matthew Ekehinde, Omotola briefly returned to the big screens with an electrifying performance in the 2017 blockbuster, ‘Alter Ego’.
