Omotola on the road to 40


Omotola Jalade Ekeinde

Nollywood star, Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde, would be 40 on Wednesday, February 7. Already, she has lined up a series of activities to commemorate the day.

Slated to be a five-day extravaganza, the events will kick off on February 7 and stretch all the way to February 11. First on the line- up of activities would be a ‘Widows and Orphans Birthday Outreach,’ followed by ‘A Couples Retreat,’ ‘Symposium On Mental Slavery and The Emancipation of the Black Race,’ and finally, ‘A Grand Ball’ in a yet-to-be-announced venue.

Omotola, it would be recalled, foraged into acting at the age of 17 in 1995, with debut appearance in Venom of Justice, but her career experienced massive boom after her award-winning role in Mortal Inheritance, alongside Fred Amata, in the movie directed by Andy Amenechi.

Her role in Kingsley Ogoro’s The Prostitute further ballooned her career, and much later Ije, Blood Sisters, Last Wedding, etc.

The Ondo State-born versatile actress is married to Matthew, a pilot, and they have four children. Their wedding, over two decades ago, was a talk-of-the-town, having held aboard a cruising aircraft and with dozens of colleagues, friends and family members in attendance.
