@ Anonymous 2.49pm - so somebody cannot be a sex symbol because she's a "mommy" as you put it? expand your mind, my person abeg. Is Taraji P. Henson, Nia Long, J-Lo, Salma Hayek, Halle Berry not mothers? They are still considered sexy women so why can't Omotola not be sexy?

There is a sexiness that is classy and a sexiness that is trashy. Omotola is the classy yet sexy kind that grown men fantasize about, them other chicks you mentioned are the types boys think are sexy until they meet a grown woman!

Linda dear, one of your Beauty of the Month that you featured here a few months back, Ebbe Bassey was a supporting actress in the film along with Ama K, Kimberly Elise and OmoTSexy. I saw it online, can't wait for the trailer because by all accounts, it is going to do major things for African films on an international level. It is time for a change.

@ Anonymous 2.18pm - I agree with you that it would be nice to see Nigerians/African actors in more Hollywood films because there are many actors of African origin residing in the States. I think that the intermingling of Hollywood actors in Nollywood/African films can help open those doors.

she luks awful in dat pics. like she had her face did,u know, like botox injection?

mehn this is how i expect omotola to be dressed, she is flamming hot here. If this is a recent picture then she must have fired her stylist since that grammy award disaster. I pray she keeps dressing like this. Her face was over photoshopped sha. wonder why because she is so beautiful and doesnt need all that airbrushing.
Wishing her all the best in her acting, looking forward to the movie
