Omotola Counts Her Blessings, Gets Richer
Nollywood actress, Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde is presently gliding on the waves of good times right now as made manifest in the recent job she secured to model for vibrant brand.
Judging from the reaction of her fans, the veteran actress did not fail to dazzle and nailed the advert with her gorgeous looks. Omotola stunned in the new photos for the leading online brand.
The actress who recently secured an endorsement deal with P&G’s Pampers added a few more millions to her bulging back account with Nigeria’s leading online retail store, Konga's marketplace deal.
“We wanted Nigerians around the world to know about Konga’s Online Marketplace and who is better to help us spread the word than Nigeria’s sweetheart, Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde. Once we told her about the marketplace, she was excited and agreed to be a part of it all,” a statement had read.
In the television commercial recorded in Lagos, viewers will see Omotola explain how easy it is to become a seller and how lucrative it can be, while also following the transaction of a Konga Marketplace seller.
Not long ago, Omotola was listed by New Africa Magazine as one of the 100 richest, most powerful and Most Influential Africans alive today and this was not a coincidence.
In addition to Omotola making the list, what most of her fans found even more interesting was the fact that Nigerians constituted a whopping 23% of the list with an incredibly wide spread over all categories, as well as dominating the business scene. Next was South Africa, taking up 22% of the list.
According to the organisers, the list was all about “the powerful, the rich, the fastest, the first as well as spiritual leaders, political game changers, global superstars and a slew of sporting record breakers to rival the world’s best”.
Since her Nollywood film debut in 1995, the leading actress has appeared in 300 films, selling millions of video copies.
After receiving numerous high-profile awards, launching a music career, and amassing an enviable fan base, Omotola remains the first African celebrity to receive over 1 million likes on her Facebook page.
Today, beyond her show business accomplishments, she is also applauded for her remarkable humanitarian efforts. Over the years, Omotola has been a pioneer in the Nollywood film industry, successfully becoming the most watched actress in Africa.
it might also interest you to know that Omotola was listed alongside Michelle Obama, Beyonce and Kate Middleton in Time Magazine's 2013 list of the 100 most influential people in the world.
In early 2013, Omotola made her U.S. television debut in VH1's scripted series, Hit the Floor.
On November 2, 2013, she spoke at the 2013 edition of the WISE Summit, held in Doha, Qatar.
