Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde needs no formal introduction but perhaps film maker, Obi Emelonye does – he is the award winning director/producer of the spectacular movie ‘Last Flight To Abuja.’ The movie first came to limelight when it reportedly grossed more than N8 million in its first week at the cinema.
The movie, which stars the likes of Hakeem Kae Kazeem, Jim Iyke, Jide Kosoko and others, is still showing at the cinema and has already raked in not less than N24 million, to break the record of ebbing the highest box office earner this year.
For Omosexy, this year has been one of her busiest moments in the industry. She has not only starred in quite a number of big-budget movies, she has equally taken her talent beyond the shores of this country. At the last count, she starred in Ties That Bind alongside Hollywood’s Kimberley Elise, Kofi Adjorlolo, Ama K, Khareemar Aguiar among others.
She was also in Tarila Thompson’s “Up Creek”, Teco Benson’s “Blood on the Lagoon” which is currently in post production and “Amina”, starring alongside British actor Wil Johnson and Vincent Regan.
To cap an eventful and rewarding year, the actress was recently awarded with the BEFFTA Film Icon for her contribution to the film industry in Africa, Europe and globally – a feat that makes her the first ever African so honored.
