Hailed as cinema box office queen, Omotola played lead role in the movie Ije, Africa’s biggest and highest earning movie in the cinemas to date. Omotola continues to appear on the screens globally with her latest movies Up Creek Without a Paddle and Blood on the Lagoon in post production .

hmmm..icon ?what of liz benson,bukky ajayi,racheal oniga,ngozi ezeonu,sandra achums,iya rainbow,shola sobowale,etc,thispple stared when omotola was still in pry school,so if omotola became their icon while they re still alive and some of them still acting how would they feel.

Did she contour her face or is that a fake nose? Looks like a Los Angeles nose job. Great actress though!

Mehnn....u'r stupid sha! Smdh!I can't even reply d stupidity u just wrote! So if they feel she's doing a good job,they must wait till ppl who started acting before her have all died before she is recognised?! And that will be when? Moreova did they say she's an icon for"all the actors and actresses?"So there's nobody younger than omotola that has been given an award for their contribution to one thing or the other abi?chai!Ur parents would be embarrassed that after all the training and sending u to school u still don't have sense!!! Na wa oh!

Linda pls try to interview this actresses plsssss. Lets know what cream dey use and makeup. Beauty tips generally. Omotola looks sooo very fab in these pictures

Congratulations Omosexy! It's been a long time coming. And for you questioning, might I remind you that there's something called 'staying power' and Omotola has shown that she has that. These other actresses are great, no doubt but OmoT has sure accomplished and impacted a lot more in my opinion. Keep flying high!

Thankyou jare.... Oniranu oshi

There is something about omotola. She is so gracious and I respect her a lot. She is supposed to be FACE of Nollywood. She has tried a lot to keep away from scandal. Just look at the babe and her husband. I am yet to see anybody worth emulating in that industry. She is a true africa woman wiv class and dignity. She has shown that being in the lime light and keeping a home can be achieved. Maybe these are the things people see in her that she is always been recognised everywhere she goes......... I admire her a lot.

Don't say it again, Joke Sylva? Wetin she dey act? If not rich classy woman what other role can she play? Because she went to newyork sch of acting? U̶̲̥̅̊ didn't call Patience ozokwor is joke and besides the likes of omotola are more hardworking so don't blame them. Helen Mirren can't be compared to Angelina jolie ├Éespite age difference work hard and stay in the lime light. Gbomkwem.

Micheal Anderson said...

Don't call Joke name here again!!! What has These old women actresses done for anybody? But themselves, these young ones like omotola are trying their best and your saying Joke shld be given what? Isn't it Gene and Don jazzy that went to see flood victims? Where are your agbalagba actresses? I've had enof of this joke ish.

You made your point then you started to sound stupid.
Moral lesson is always keep out irrelevancies in a comment such as yours.
