Omotola has been in the US (Los Angeles) for the past couple of weeks.
On Saturday, the Nollywood actress joined the Americans to celebrate the 4th of July with friends. As ever, she is a stunning sight in these pictures.
Several Nollywood and Ghallywood actors including Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde and Lydia Forson flew to Los Angeles to grace the Africa Movie Academy Awards Nominee Party.
Omotola Jalade Ekeinde’s daughter has turned 18 and she has some kind words/prayer she shared together with the above photo of her daughter on her instagram.
Omotola must really be proud and to be frank, the daughter looks just as beautiful as the mother…
After having made it unto the BBC and several top media platforms, Nigeria’s Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde has sat down with CNN African Voices to talk about her childhood, career and the year’s ahead.
With Nollywood leading film-making in Africa and other industries fast falling behind, we should embrace ourselves for those Nollywood stars who work tireless day in and out to be recognized—and be given such vibrant platforms.
Omotola is said to have appeared in over 300 movies and became the first African celebrity to obtain 1 million fans (likes) on Facebook.

TIME has published its annual list of the 100 most influential people in the world, from artists and leaders to pioneers, titans and icons…
And notably in the list are; Nigeria’s Omotola Jalade Ekeinde, Jay-Z, Beyonce, Kate Middleton, Barrack Obama and AC Milan football star-Mario Balotelli.
I guess Mario ‘Barwuah’ Balotelli is representing Ghana in there…LOL
This is what former Italy star Zola who manages England’s Watford F.C. had to say about ‘Barwuah’ Balotelli…
Mario has all the qualities to be a top player: power and athleticism, alongside a good understanding of the game — all positive.
I worked with Mario for a short period with Italy’s under-21 side. I liked him straightaway. I liked the way he handled himself and his composure and calmness in situations. Mario could shrug off things happening around him. Only the big players have that calm.
Mario can play the big games and handle the crucial moments, but he needs to keep control. That is vital for him.
From afar, people may think he’s a madman, but he isn’t. Mario is a lovely guy, very humble and very funny. I can assure people he has always been a pleasure to deal with. He has returned to Italy from England as the main man with lots of attention. Now he has to ensure he keeps control and keeps focus. Mario loves the pressure, but to succeed, it is about finding balance.
Star actress Jackie Appiah was the only Ghanaian actress courtesy her nomination in the ‘Best Actress in a Drama’ category from the movie ‘Perfect Picture’ to be present at the Cocktail party for the inaugural edition of the AfricaMagic Viewers’ Choice Awards, held last night in Lagos-Nigeria.

The producers of Omotola Jalade Ekeinde’s reality TV series-‘The Real Me‘ have started airing the show…
Though the 1st episode is quiet boring to me (This is why I don’t understand who will be watching these African celebrities reality series because they will always be boring), it was shot in Ghana and as such, I have decided to bring it here for you guys to check it out…

Hello Chris Vincent and Ghanacelebrities.com. My name is Leslie Berth Walker, a senior film student at the Georgia State University. Your website has been an immense help to me in my study of African Cinema. But today, I read with great disappointment the letter sent you by the AMAA regarding their flawed nominations list.
I have followed the award scheme for 3 years now and attended the one held in Bayelsa last year to cover it for my documentary class. I was quite impressed to see someone rose up to challenge the award nomination list, but to read their response was a great disappointment and a shame to the reputation of the awards.
3 years ago, the award nominated Perfect Picture’s three actresses as leads and all three ladies won. I am surprised that the AMAA are making such a lame excuse for relegating Omotola Jalade Ekeinde’s role in Ties That Bind, which I was privileged to watch at the WOCAF in Atlanta last week, to a supporting role.
The headline for Ties That Bind I believe is 3 women, 3 lives, 1 hope. Omotola did not play a supporting role in Ties That Bind, she is a member of the three women who make up the story. Ama Abebrese may have had more scenes, but that was made possible because of the presence of the clinic and her being a Dr.
Her story did not surround her job, the clinic. The clinic was part of the story as a character because it was used as an element of adumbrating. Each of the women had different stories but they all knew each other, a phenomenon that surely influenced the title, The Ties That Bind. (more…)
