One of the most respected Nollywood actress and iconic movie star Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde, who has been off the movie scene quite sometime now, is currently working on new movie project titled ” Alter Ego “.
Omo Sexy fondly call by her fans says she working on a movie project call “Alter Ego “. According to her Omotola who says the movie will be very strong and polarizing – making reference that you might like her or hate her in the movie, because she’s coming out with something she has never done before.
Veteran actress Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde who has been off the movie scene for about three years had a chat with urban music channel Hip TV, where she speaks on her new project and why she pick this very one over other script.
She said –
“Alter Ego is amazing. For a very long time I couldn’t find a script that uhm… appealed to [me].
The more I went out of the country and mixed with my colleagues internationally I began to understand how much people respected my brand and how much people expected of me, because when you’re back here you just get caught up in your normal stuff.
So I’m doing my normal Nollywood movies … but … I see how much they expect from me and how much they want from me. It was like a reset for me. It wasn’t easy.
Every year you have someone asking me, “Omotola are you not doing movies again? Why are you not in movies?” but I said to myself until my find that project … the setup, that character that inspires me.
I had to work with them on the script but there was something there.”
She praised the director of the movie, EP and the crew, saying “we are making magic, it’s amazing”.
She further speaks on when the movie will be finally out: She says they were hoping for December but with her busy travel schedule, the movie will most likely not be released until 2017.
