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’.

Omotola born on 7 February 1978 is a Nigerian actress, singer, philanthropist and former model. Since her Nollywood film debut in 1995, she has appeared in 300 films, selling millions of video copies.
She is the first African celebrity to receive over 1 million likes on her Facebook page. She currently has a total of three  million followers on Facebook.
Omosexy married pilot Captain Matthew Ekeinde in 1996. The couple later held a white ceremony on board a Dash 7 aircraft while flying from Lagos to Benin in 2001, with close family and friends present.
Omotola gave birth to her first daughter on 30 March 1997. Together, they have four children, Princess, M.J, Meraiah and Michael.
