The most talented and gorgeous actress, singer and a mother Omotola jalade Ekeinde is currently celebrating 20 years in the Nigerian movie industry (Nollywood) . She is breaking boundaries through her talent of which she is most times rewarded with several Awards and recognitions.

She was recently put on yahoo’s list of ‘ The highest-grossing movie stars you’ve probably never heard of’

Omo Sexy happens to be the only Nigerian, and African, on the list as well as being one of the two women on the list.. yahoo states below

“Hollywood stars like your Tom Cruises and your Samuel L Jacksons are ten-a-penny these days – you can’t leave the house without seeing their faces plastered on bus stops and the sides of buildings.”

Yahoo states further

“What of the actors who have achieved great success but receive no recognition for their work? Why, that bloke you were queing behind in Waitrose could have been one of these guys – the 10 highest-grossing movie stars you’ve never heard of…

Omotola Jalade Ekeinde
Total box-office: Unknown

We’ll wager not only have you not heard of Omotola Jalade Ekeinde – or ‘Omosexy’ as her fans call her – but we reckon you probably haven’t even heard of the industry she spearheads: Nollywood.
Yes, that’s Nigeria’s version Hollywood, in which Omosexy dominates – she has over 300 film credits to her name (although most go straight to video). In her homeland she’s like a cross between Oprah Winfrey and Kim Kardashian, with her own reality TV series following her and her family.
Though it’s nigh on impossible to determine what her box-office total is, given that the Nigerian film industry is mostly one that distributes through market stalls and street corners, it is estimated to be worth upwards of £320 million a year – and Omosexy is a Nollywood cornerstone”.

Congratulations

The excitement has started! Omotola’s “Give and let give” in conjunction with OYEP fetes widows and orphans to food, drinks, dancing and gifts.

Omotola who is marking her 20th year anniversary in entertainment hosted the usual end of year “give and let give” where she and friends brought gift items for the less privileged amidst fun and thankfulness for a closing year and welcoming a new one.

Many of the widows from ‘Omotola’s 20 widows’ makeover’ and other widows home were full of prayers for the Star actress, her supportive husband – Captain Ekeinde and her friends and staff.

Omotola who starts her tour in Abuja on the 21st of January was very playful with the kids. She danced heartily and thanked everyone for coming. It was indeed a blessed time.

In an interview with Encomium Magazine, Award winning actress, mother and wife Omotola Jalade Ekeinde, said that anyone who comes between a married couple deserve to be jailed because that person is robbing the couple of their joy and she said more about her marriage and marriage in general..read full story below

I think it should be a crime for anyone to come in between a couple. I feel anybody that comes between a married couple be a man or woman should go to jail. Such a person is robbing the family of their joy. To me, it is a crime that is worse than stealing another person’s property”

Speaking about what has kept her marriage going for 18 years, Omotola said

“I would say first it is the fear of God. Then the fact that the reason we do all we do or the person we are all answerable to is God. He is the one guiding us. I would not lie to you that there was no time we almost gave up on both sides but at the end of the day you know you are answerable to God for whatever you do. There fore take your worry to him. And the reason you don’t do anything stupid is because this person is not you are answerable to ultimately but God. So when God knows you depend on him that much, i think alone that helps you. Second is patience. You have to be very patient in every relationship, not just marriage. I feel very sad that a lot of people put so much pressure these days on marriages succeeding or not as if it is an alien relationship. The truth of the matter is that people fight their fathers, you fight your best friends. So why is it that you feel that you and your spouse can’t fight or quarrel?”

Speaking about her husband

“He has been supportive. He has been an angel. He is my rock of Gibraltar. I would say my husband is my fan so also my critic. Most important he has been my pillar of support. If you are doing this job, you feel like you always want to fear what somebody would feel about you. When I am talking of somebody, I mean your parent or husband, somebody that means something to you, that limits you as a creative mind. God is my witness, my husband has never for once felt anything negative about me being an actress. In 2016, we are going to celebrate 20 years of marriage. I can’t remember anytime I wanted to do anything and he kicked against it violently. I have had to travel out of the country sometimes, it may be the same day he would know. You are also aware of the sensitivity of our job, we are very disorganized often times. You know how it feels for you to tell your husband that one thing you have been pursuing for the past three months, all of a sudden, you just got a call that they have bought flight ticket for you and you are going for maybe one week. So naturally that’s just something you would say no, you can’t. But I would go and tell him and he would be like wow! He would even encourage me to go. He is very understanding and very supportive”

Speaking on if her marriage was ever threatened by her career

“The only time I would say I was worried was when the movie, The Prostitute came out and that was the first major shaking I had. It was like a kind controversy. From the movie poster to the s*x scenes, whatever in that movie that was shot after I left there was shot as if I was the one who did it. And you know Nigeria was not ready for that so there was a lot of controversy around that. So that was the only time I really worried about my marriage and to be frank and candid, until my husband told me he wasn’t bothered, then I had peace”.

Yesterday we reported that Lagos State governor, Babatunde Fashola was ruled out of the APC Vice Presidential ticket for the upcoming elections. As you can guess as popular as he is, not too many people were happy about the decision by APC.

One of those people is popular actress, Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde. She took to twitter to voice her displeasure with the decision along with the fact that Donald Duke is also not running.

 

Well… I’m not too thrilled too. Or maybe Omosexy you can run too? Yea? Maybe?

Omo-Gene

Yesterday, some Nollywood stars including Omotola were honoured by the Federal Government. Charles Novia took to his Facebook page to congratulate them and also air his thoughts on Genevieve as an actress, read below.

“Congratulations to the Nollywood recipients of the Nigerian National Awards which took place today in Abuja. Kenneth Nnebue, Joke Silva and Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde were each given National Honours by President Jonathan today.

Kenneth Nnebue is generally acknowledged as the founder of the home video industry in Nigeria which later snowballed into Nollywood. His epoch – making movie ‘Living in Bondage’ which he Executive Produced in 1992 generated the unleashing of creative spirits in Nigeria who followed his footsteps and used the affordable home video technology to exhibit their gifts.

Perhaps without Nnebue’s foray into that sector, the likes of me and thousands of others would never have found the creative leeway we used to show our talents. His award is belated though. But better late than never.

Joke Silva is an actor’s actor. A formidable screen personality and one of the most articulate thespians Nigeria has produced. She is an inspiration to millions and her award is just about a crowning glory she could ever receive from her nation. A priceless gem.

Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde is known to many. Her acting prowess is arguably in a class by itself and her being nominated as one of the world’s 100 most influential persons by TIME magazine a couple of years back must have paved the way for her present national recognition by the Federal Government. Frankly speaking, I personally think she has more depth in acting than her ‘rival’ Genevieve Nnaji. I have worked with both of them in the past and also studied their acting styles. Omotola has the gift of role immersion. She gives everything into her characters. There is an organic style of interpretation she is gifted with. Very few actors have that. She Is not a Method Actor, mind you but she has delivered roles which many method actors would give her a standing ovation for.

Genevieve, on the other hand, is a fantastic actress and a trend – setting one too. But she lacks the intrinsic ability to evolve artistically beyond her present heights in her career. That is my opinion. There is an underlying stereotype in her interpretation of her roles in many of her movies; a linear aloofness and veiled disdain at the thought of being pushed further down the exploratory lane. Of course she has an uncanny screen presence which generally veils her artistic shortcomings when it comes to acting and between her and her rivals, she comes tops on the fan base list. However, with an attitude which seems to say she has nothing more to prove, even the fans would become restless if new artistic exploits are not offered from her to which they can beat their chests.

And for fans of both actresses, this is a professional review of their acting abilities and not an attempt to rekindle old rivalries. Somehow, this post on the National Honours dove tailed into their artistry. All well and good.

Congrats to the Recipients once again.

I’m no expert but personally, I think both women are exceptional actresses hence their recognition by the Federal Government. But being a biased Genevieve Nnaji fan…I don’t agree with Charles Novi, Genevieve is a better actress. What do you think? Who is a better?

There are few things sexier than a hot mom. With all the demands being a mother comes with these celebrity mothers have found a way to keep it hot and sexy, and in some cases even put their single colleagues to shame.

Some of them we all know about, and some you might be surprised to know about, but here are some of the hottest Nigerian celebrity mothers.

 

Genevieve-Nnaji-Jaguda.com_

Genevieve Nnaji

Sometimes we forget that Genevieve is mother of a teenager. She makes it very easy to make us forget by how flawless and hot she looks at any given point in time. She’s not only one of the hottest mothers in Nigerian entertainment, she’s one of the hottest in Nigeria period.

 

dakore-akande

Dakore Akande

Dakore Akande was a serious hottie when she got married, and has stayed a hottie after 2 children (the most recent born in February 2014). Dakore has always had a sophisticated type of look, and it works very well for her now even as a relatively more conservative woman.

 

KATE-HENSHAW

Kate Henshaw

First off, Kate Henshaw looks ridiculously hot and sexy for a woman over 40, and when you throw in that she’s a also a mother it makes it even more impressive. Kate Henshaw’s body will intimidate a lot of unmarried women without children.

 

IMG_1014 - Omotola Jalade-Cyprus_May2014 - 62

Omotola Ekeinde

You check most lists of hottest women in Nigerian entertainment, and you’re bound to find Mrs Omosexy’s name on it. There’s a reason why her Omosexy name has stuck through the years. Oh yea, and did we mention that she’s a mother of 4. Yes 4. Man her husband is super lucky.

 

waje-2

Waje

It’s W.A.J.E! Waje has gone through a transformation of sorts over the last couple of years, and she’s no officially a bonafide MILF. Yep she is. This talented singer and mother of a 15 year old is not only super sexy, but she can sing her way into anyone’s heart. *sigh… inserts One Naira*

 

adaeze-yobo

Adaeze Yobo

This former Most Beautiful Girl In Nigeria winner, and wife of Super Eagles player Joseph Yobo has found a way to keep her hotness levels high even after her first kid. She was listed as one of the hottest soccer wives by Bleacher Report back in 2011, and we can totally see why. I mean we’re ranking her here too :)

 

OluchiSons_BornFree_2_

Oluchi Orlandi

International super model, Oluchi Orlandi has been the hottest thing since sliced cheese since she was discovered at the Face of Africa contest way back in 1998. 16 years and a 3 year old son later, she’s still super hot, and looks like she hasn’t aged at all.

 

toyin-lawani-2

Toyin Lawani

Celebrity stylist and CEO Tiannah Styling, Toyin Lawani exudes swag on a very high level. She’s attractive, uniquely stylish, and has the attitude that in a very strange way is attractive to a lot of men. Oh and she’s a mom of a 10 year old daughter, but looking at her you wouldn’t be able to tell at all.

 

yvonne-nwosu

Yvonne Nwosu

This fashionista/fashion designer, and mother of a 10-year old daughter will make most lists of sexiest entertainers in Nigeria, so it only makes sense that she’s on this list of hottest celebrity moms in Nigeria. I mean look at her. From her fashion sense to her eyes, she’s got everything that any man would want.

 

Oh well that’s all folks. Drop a comment and let us know who you think are the hottest celebrity mothers on this list and not mentioned on this list.

Who better to use right? Dakore Akande (mother of 2) and Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde (mother of 4)

These 2 Nollywood mothers have been picked by Proctor & Gamble as the new brand ambassadors for Pampers in Nigeria. They’re currently in the process of finishing up their photo shoot for the promotional campaigns, and we should be seeing those pics all over billboards pretty soon.

Big ups to both of them. Very good look.

Nollywood actress, Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde is not too thrilled about stories circulating the blogosphere concerning her 14 year old daughter and how “hot and sexy” she is. Her protective motherly instincts kicked in to high gear, and you can’t blame her.

Not exactly sure why there was all that hoopla about the little girl. I mean she’s 14. With that being said, Omotola might need to have a word or 2 with all her kids as to what to expect from the media, and also some social media limitations would not be a bad idea.

Anyways check out what Omotola had to say

“Thank you to everyone who wished Meraiah a happy birthday. However, going to a 14 year old’s “private” online accts to post her pictures for public viewing is totally Inappropriate . Her father and I are horrified as parents and guardian that a minor’s picture can be paraded online as hot” ,”sexy” etc…

We know the bloggers probably meant no harm but in a world full of pedophiles and sickos every adult with morales should know where to draw the line. This was started by a lady called Kemi filani , she has since apologized and taken down content but her reckless blog post lives on.

I WILL NOT hesitate henceforth to use everything within my power to bring ANYONE to justice who does this with any of my under aged kids after “this” first time episode !

Any child under 18 should be protected by us all and if their parents/guardian haven’t given you the okay to publish information especially “private” of their child, doing so, is against the law. I hope you all understand, thanks. Omotola.”

You gotta respect it. Kudos.

Friday people! Let’s get into the song we’ll be reviewing this week. It’s time for Two To Review.

Tekno – Dance

Raise your hand if you know exactly what Tekno is saying in this song; In any language. *Sigh* It’s kind of frustrating because the Tekno we’ve come to know is very talented, and did well to at least put some lyrics down on a song to make it listenable.

This unfortunately is not what I expected from Tekno. The Tekno of Holiday and Onyenekwu is not what is on display here.  The beat is pretty good from E-Kelly, but everything else is generic, and uninspiring.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m a Tekno fan, but I have to say this is not it. Who knows though? Enough air spins and we might hear it more.

Rating: 5/10

Listen Here

 

Omotola Jalade Ekeinde – Barren Land

I think it’s pretty pointless right now to say Omotola should stop singing cos she’s obviously not goint to, but please if we’re going to be getting songs from her can it be of some level of quality? Please.

Interestingly Omotola’s song has more lyrical content than a lot of song out today, but the whole thing just gets lost in the noisy beat, the autotune, the uninspiring voice, and poor song quality. If this is what Omotola is going to use to inspire Africa then we really have a long way to go to be inspired.

Now I’m going to watch an Omotola movie and smile at how amazing of an actress she is, and forget I just heard this.
