By next year, superstar Nollywood actress, Omotola Jalade-Ekehinde would have spent 20 years as an actress.
Making the big announcement via social media, Omotola said: ‘It’s my pleasure to announce to u that in the year 2015!!! I will be Marking 20 YEARS IN ENTERTAINMENT. THANK YOU LORD ! 20 YEARS IN ENTERTAINMENT! 2 DECADES !
Can you believe it? Just like yesterday.’ Note that the pretty mother of 4 did not just say in the Nigerian movie industry but used the world, ‘entertainment,’ perhaps in reference to her music career believed by many to have stalled.
She asked her followers on Twitter what they would want from her going forward, writing: ‘So at 20 years in Entertainment what do you expect to see of me? More of me? or to start doing?’ And a fan said she would want her to start directing movies, to which Omotola said: ‘I’ve directed a soap opera ‘THE SMOKE’ you’ll be able to buy it online soon.’
Omotola, who will also be 37 years old on February 7, 2015, became involved in Nollywood in 1995, with the movie, Venom of Justice directed by Reginald Ebere….
