Omotola Is Back With Surprises, Says She Found God Early
For three years, she was off the screens. Fans could not tell what the disappearance was for. But, she’s back now and has revealed why she took the French leave.
Popularly known as Omosexy, Nollywood diva, Omotola Jalade-Ekehinde is back with a bang!
Her new movie, Alter Ego has received wild criticisms.
The entertainer who recently spoke with Daily Sun Reporters said: “I’ve been building my businesses, film village in Badagry and some other personal international projects. I took time to creatively re-organise myself.
She said the film village would be ready next year.
The movie star also hinted that; “I want to get back to the music industry so bad. I am coming back. It is not like I care what people are saying but I will be back soon.”
Talking about how she had much chemistry with Wole Ojo in her new film, Alter Ego, the pretty actress said,
“I have heard about him so much but the movie was the first time we got together. When we got to know we would be acting together, we spent a lot of time playing; we played very rough. I understand the power of being so close to your love interest in a movie, so we became very close even before the shooting. We ate together and spent lots of time together, and had each other’s interest at heart. It helped us to bring out our best in Alter Ego.”
She responded to the criticisms that followed her raunchy part in the movie “When I wasn’t even that confident, I starred in a movie called The Prostitute, which was released 22 years ago. If I didn’t die then, is it now? I am ready for them. I don’t even like watching myself on screen. If I do, I will feel like burning inside and might even start crying because I criticise myself a lot. Sometimes, I pity those watching especially when I poorly do a sex scene. I would be like ‘what was that for?’ It can kill the whole movie when it’s poorly done. For me, if a sex scene is not going to be well done, then why do it in the first place? If you must kiss, you should be able to kiss well; make it professional.
Jalade capped the chat by disclosing how her success was due to her finding God early.
She said, “I think it is knowing what matters and being authentic and real. But in all, you must make sense. I am blessed that at a very tender age, I was able to find God, so my Christian values have been able to let me know what is wrong and what not to do. That way, the core me is real. I no dey form. With me, what you see is what you get. I don’t have time to live fake lifestyle. Whenever I come out, it is still about the real me. Talking about work, I never take it for granted. From the beginning of my career, I knew what I wanted. I had a vision and kept staying focused. Even now, I remain undistracted. The more you are inspired and focused, the more you are relevant.”
