Omotola Jalade Ekeinde made it to the Icon list.
“Called OmoSexy by her fans, she has made 300 or so features, from the 1996 Mortal Inheritance to the 2010 superproduction Ijé, shot partly on location in Los Angeles. Married to an airline pilot she wed on a flight from Lagos to Benin, Jalade-Ekeinde 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 Nollywood.
Under the Icons, Omotola was listed with Beyonce, Michelle Obama, Kate Middleton, and Nobel Peace Prize winner, Aung San Suu Kyi, among others. Follow on twitter Follow @BeautifulBlogga
