Omoni Oboli has come a long way as a seasoned actress and producer, having made her debut in the movie industry after starring in ‘Bitter Encounter’ in 1996, where she played a secretary. She went on to star in the movie ‘Shame’, but it was Lonzo Nzekwe’s “Anchor Baby”featuring herself alongside Sam Sarpong and Terri Oliver that brought Omoni Oboli to limelight. Since then, the proud mother of three has not looked back as she has continued to grow from strength to strength in her career. It’s on this note, that the actress marked her 40th birthday during the week with the unveiling of her latest book titled, “ The Stars Are Ageless.” She excitedly took to her Instagram page to celebrate her success. She wrote, “I wrote a book! #TheStarsAreAgeless. You can now add author to my name. Been working on this baby for a while and she’s finally here! Thank you Lord! 40 sure looks good on me!”
In another post, the actress wrote, “How do I even start to say thanks for the love that was shown me on my 40th birthday? I am still overwhelmed. I promise I will get around to responding to most messages.
I dove straight into work here at the Tutu fellowship in South Africa.
It’s a very intense leadership course so I haven’t had much ‘me’ time. I love you all so much and I pray that you find only good all the days of your life.
Oboli began her formal movie career in 1996 with her first movie role in ‘Bitter Encounter.’ Her next movie was ‘Shame’. She then went on to play the lead female character in three major movies; ‘Not My Will’, ‘Destined To Die’ and ‘Another Campus Tale’. After enjoying a brief career in 1996, Oboli left the movie industry to complete her university education. She married immediately after school and did not return to the industry until a decade later.
