Nollywood’s leading lady and mother of four, Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde, is not known as a woman who takes things with a pinch of salt. She has a reputation of hitting back fast and hard whenever she is hit.
At the Nigerian Entertainment Conference (NEC), which held last week, Omotola told the audience that people should count her out of those who hobnobbed with government either for businesses or pleasure.
“Somebody on a blog a few days ago wrote that there are Nollywood personalities who are friends with politicians, sharing the national cake together. I, Omotola, have never campaigned or partied with any government, so don’t mention my name among those who do that. I have suffered enough for refusing to party with them and take ‘Ghana Must Go’ back home, so don’t let me suffer more,” she stated.
“If, as an entertainer, you want to be friends with politicians, do so without aligning your brand with whatever the politicians stand for”.
