Omotola talks about her Time Magazine honour

In April 2013, screen goddess Omotola Jalade Ekeinde (pictured above with Justin Timberlake) was honored as one of Time Magazine 100 Most Influential People in the World. According to Omotola, it's an achievement that will forever linger in her memory. She tells Encomium magazine:
"It's a great honour. Sometimes you really don't know your worth and people around you may just take you for granted. I was selected for a number of reasons. From what I was told, they watch a lot of my movies up there. The person who wrote my profile is actually the movie critic for Time magazine. He had been introduced to some of my movies. He also got to know about my other activities, including human rights activism and others. They also conducted opinion polls from those that follow what's going on in Nollywood. I think the opinion of the organisers is based on this. I wasn't the only person picked from Africa. There was another guy from Egypt but he's white and lives in the US. He is a blogger. I was the only black African honoured and out of the 100 honorees, they only picked 20 of our portraits displayed in the Time Work of Fame, and my picture was there. Not only that, it was given the pride of place. One thin I noticed was that from the moment I stepped onto the red carpet, I was treated like a queen. I was on one of the best tables, sitting with US Vice President, Joe Biden and others. I think it was a good moment for Africa. It was one of the few moments I felt like Africa has arrived.

I love Omotola & wish her the best, but there're few thing I've noticed about her: 1. she makes it seems like she's competing with others instead of herself & just focusing on bettering herself/skills. 2. When Genevieve was recognize on Oprah, & CNN she never went around boasting about it. I think Omotola should be more quiet when things like this happen, because White people don't follow through & trust me the White man she said wrote her profile pretty much don't remember that much about her right now. You see, that's why I don't think she should be boasting here & there & letting things get to her head, instead whenever she's asked, her reply should just be I thank GOD. Moreover, TIME magazine isn't all that these days, they've had people like Adolf Hitler on there just to name a few. I wish her continual success.

Nigerian American said...

Please, don't misunderstand, this is a great achievement and I congratulate her, but from the excerpt she's sounding like she has the (unfortunately) typical nigerian inferiority complex when it comes to dealing with America and the Western world..... You have to know your worth, girl! You don't need American accolades to define your greatness.

This kinda reminds me of Halle Berry's one-kind speech when she became the first African American female to win an oscar. Truth be told, even African Americans seem to have this inferiority thingy.

Not hating but this woman is always looking for reasons to be in the news. I wonder if she has time to look after her family.

Please shut your traps if you cannot think, talk or write! How is she boasting? This was probably excerpts from an interview. Did she go about telling people what happened? And how is she competing with people? She has a different personality! Genny is more laid back from what I see but Omotola moves around and I am not surprised that she is recognized. Whether you like it or not, this is huge for her and she is now a well known international actress while you seat behind your pc whining!

Gosh! I don't know Omotola but I think she answered the question well and I see no iota or pride in her response! She is greater than Genevieve now, Deal with it!

One thing I have come to realize in my sojourn so far in Life,is that once you are dilligent and focused - with a positive mentality and attitude - in your vocation. God will come to your aid,nature would bring forth every thing that is needed for your elevation. If you have any doubts, see Proverbs 22:29.

No doubt,haf always admired her from d on set. But you are sounding kinda boastful and pompous...... Already feelin lyk an icon I guess;u dnt haf to over do it..... I humor geneviev's maturity, she's quiet,intuitive and respectful..... through out your interview you weren't thankful to God.....I feel honourd,once I was usherd onto the red carpet, I sat with the US vice president bla bla bla..... We all knw you are halfcast, its more like it; if not there are many iconic objects in the movie industry dat deserved that award too..... No hating, jst be mature @this state of your achievements more is expected from you manner-wise

FACT said...

i am one of your fans and i love everything you represent,but i sensed pride in that interview you released,slow down Madam. The best you could have done is to give thanks to God and acknowledge Nigerians/ your fans and remain your humble self.That statement "sometimes you really don't know your worth and people around you may just take you for granted" sounds boastful. I am beginning to see you as someone that has an egocentric disposition and that is not good for your reputation.Please remain humble because you are there just by grace and not because you are better off than others.Still love u.

Anonymous said...

I for one have no doubts about Omotola's talents and abilities, however I fear this young woman is fast falling head first into the trap that has killed many actors' career dead. She's so over exposed and goes to untold lengths to sell the form rather than the substance. For someone who claims to be a Nollywood star the only times we see this poor woman is whenever she's junketing around the world for one reason or the other. She has placed herself on such a high pedestal that i doubt many of her colleagues or producers will want to work with her. I hope she doesn't let this over exposure detract from her real career and more importantly her family. being the flavour of the month doesn't necessarily translate to longevity in a career. Enough Oscar winners of years back that are currently struggling to land even commercials in Hollywood. A word is enough for the wise. I wish her the very best of luck.

If it was that easy to buy the award, why not contribute and buy for Genevive and all those you think deserve it more? Daughter of Zion said she should face Christ and not worldly things, why are you on Linda Ikeji's blog abi is this a Christian blog??? Should you not be facing Christ as well instead of reading blogs? Congratulations to Omotola on a great achievement :)

I won't be tribalistic cos I'm Yoruba too.
Mercy johnson,Genevieve,and Rita are better.
Mercy can fit into poor,rich,widow,prostitute roles.just that she is stereotyped and she acts low budget movies.
Rita is such an impeccable actress.just that nigerian movies tend to have few themes.
Il like to see these actresses challanges with more complex roles.even Mona
Can't Nigeria give us movies about d civil war,the old oyo empire,colonial era.great epics.
Many of the producers are lazy and the viewers accept mediocrity.

i took time to read this interview like 3 times. i dont think she sounds proud. i think she sounds overwhelmed. which is natural. this is Times magazine not Vanguard newspaper(no pun intended). read the interview again. she doesnt sound cordinated, she still sounds dreamy. like she still cant believe that big deal happened to her. hate or not , this is a BIG DEAL. even yankee big names add it to their achievements. why cant we be happy for success? beats me really. some ppl acknowledge God first even when they dont mean it. shes being real abeg.Genevieve gushed after Oprah acknowledged her. i watched it. its not inferiority complex.its true emotions. its called Awe! respect greatness when u meet greatness so that greatness can come ur way! for those calling her bush girl, some of you will sit near razz Tonto Dike and will even tweet it and perhaps not take a bath for days...hypocrites!!

Anonymous said...

As the saying goes.''Pride they say goes before a fall.Omotola should slow down on the way she goes about chanting her achievements.It is good she made it this far but if she wants to annoy God,let her continue and she will be so surprised what will become of her.Success is good,when people chant your praises and not the other way round.Though,i have never been a fan to this woman,i am happy she made it far but she should grow up with the way she,s handling her affairs.

Waffi guy said...

Whenever there is a post on Omotola, some crazy Genny fans will infiltrate it with hate comments. What is the problem with you folks? Aint you tired of hating? The other day Genny celebrated her birthday in London, photos posted here, you all had a 'worship session', some were intoxicated,she took a shot with a retired Arsenal star, some were angry with Linda for not mentioning his name. Linda is a Chelsea supporter-Lol! Nobody queried her for not celebrating with her family and daughter, but the other day, Omotola celebrated her birthday in Atlanta, so many rude and bitter comments from 'opponents', many were screaming to know why she was not celebrating with her family, and why she was celebrating in the USA.
Omotola take food from una mouth?
Omotola take husband from una?
Omotola na una mate?
Una nor get respect for una senior?

Omosexy was acknowledged for her works,why should that cause you guys pain?
Is she competing with Genevieve?

Are u all done?
1.This post was NOT about Gen.
2.Comparing Gen to Omotola is like comparing a Toyota to an Aston Martin(with Omotola being the Toyota)
3.This is not a tribal war, my both Parents are Yoruba...

Anon 4.27. U are a fool,a retard and a scum of the earth. Why do people take delight in just hating other people's success for no reason. U deserve to be stripped naked,tied to a tree and stoned to death under the hot scortching sun. Oloshi oloriburuku.

please i beg u guys no body shld bring queen gennys name here. omotola can never be genny and likewise. the two are very different people.

BUT ONE THING FOR SURE IS THAT QUEEN GENNY IS INCOMPARABLE IN NOLLYWOOD. WHAT BAFFLES ME IS HER SIMPLICITY. I JUST LIKE TO BE LIKE GENNY WHEN I BECOME A STAR *WINK*

@anon 7:39 pm, Omo T may nt be yoruba o. Check out her physique, colour, and intelligence. She's like a damsel frm East. I encourage you to check out her history. Her grannies might be run-aways frm igbo land that chose to settle in yorubaland. Of course, she aint amala-stained black, shallow minded, and weak like average yoruba girl.

Wow!!!i cant stop laughing..congrats OmoT.u sure deserve it

MY TURN said...

hahahahahahahaha lobatan ooooooooo bleaching cream.... But truly am not a fan of any of these Nollywood acts but from what i know this woman has done nothing to be honored. Alek Wek has done more for Sudan, Oluchi has done more for Nigeria by being the face of Africa. Omotola no get NGO, Omotola no get school, Omotola no be ambassador to UN on any mission to alleviate suffering and poverty apart from a few movies and a bad singing career she means zilt to this country. Enjoy the moment anyway na your time.

You are not yoruba,u are a igbotic imbecile and a fool who can never do good. Ur hate will die with you. Bloody human eater. Before geneveve started acting,omotola had already received numerous awards. There is no basis for comparism. Bastard liar claiming to be yoruba. Olofo oshi

Honestly. Am laughing my heart out. All dis lib readers/commentors no go kill person o. Ronniearik.

KayDiaries said...

Yeah bow down bitches, all hail the queen, her best quality I admire the most are her philantropic work, how many of them actresses can slash what they have and share with the needy.

for those comparing Oprah show and CNN to Times magazine,i seriously smh for all of you. u'r just coming here to display your shameful, unabashed ignorance.unenlightened fellows. CNN is just a news station. anything that can make news can be featured on CNN.including rumour, false exxagerated news etc. its just CNN formed in 1980.. Oprah is just a personal talk show. Times magazine is Times magazine.Times magazine has been around since 1927! yes, u heard me right.they do not just fling their awards without thorough research. this isnt Naija, una hear?Times magazine is fucking TIMELESS. in the next 50yrs or more when they mention Times awardees of yester years, her name will be there. let me give you something more to hate on, she now shares such honour with various other presidents of states, icons and legends dead or alive of who some of us only read in books. thats more than some of u haters families up to ur 12th generation can ever dream of achieving. Times magazine is a standard in itself. be educated u illiterates! shes not my mother or sister, shes not even my favourite star, but truth must be told. Linda i order you to post my comment oooo
