Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde goes to CNN African Voices

Beginning from Friday, January 10 through Tuesday, January 14, Nigerian screen goddess, Mrs. Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde would feature on CNN African Voices to share her upbringing, road to stardom, fame and her passion for activism, reports DigitalSENSE Art & Fashion.

The actress who doubles as a singer, television personality and philanthropist, would feature on CNN African Voices, for the half-hour programme to underscore her Africanness.

The session anchored by CNN correspondent, Vladimir Duthiers, would host Omotola alias ‘Omosexy’ as she dwells on life, career achievements, passion for activism and future plans. 

Omotola. A Nollywood icon in the Nigerian entertainment industry is also a United Nations (UN) ambassador and activist with Amnesty International.

DigitalSENSE Art & Fashion reports that in 2012, Omotola was awarded the Black Entertainment Film Fashion Television and Arts (BEFFTA) Icon, a special honorary award, in recognition of her contribution to the film industry in Africa, Europe and globally. 

“I've reached a point in my life where I’ve realised I have to leave something. I have to have a legacy. I decided I will be an activist for Africa. My experience with the UN and other humanitarian organisations inspired me to want to speak out and say more and there's so much you can just say with words. This was my motivation for singing,” she said. 

Omotola is the first Nollywood act with her own reality TV show known as “Omotola: The Real Me”. She was also named one of the most influential people in the world by Time Magazine in the annual Time 100 List in 2013.
