Omotola Jalade Ekeinde Makes The 2013 Time Magazine '100 Most Influential People in the World' List
Actress Omotola Jalade Ekeinde was listed among the 2013 TIME 100 list as an icon. According to TIME, Nollywood enthralls millions more who come for the thrills, the uplift and the artful agitations of Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde.
Called OmoSexy by her husband, she has made 300 or so features, from the 1996 Mortal Inheritance to the 2010 super production, Ijé, shot partly on location in Los Angeles. Married to a pilot (had her wedding ceremony on a flight from Lagos to Benin), Omotola brings a juggler's grace to her roles as actress, singer, reality-show star, mother of four and philanthropist (the Omotola Youth Empowerment Programme). Success hasn't spoiled Africa's most renowned leading lady. Rather than going Hollywood, Omotola wants to stay in Nollywood.
