Actress, Omotola Jalade, discusses how she and fellow movie stars played a crucial role in introducing Nigerian entertainment to the world.
According to TSZ Naija’s report, in the 90s, Omotola, Genevieve Nnaji, Rita Dominic, Eucharia Anunobi, Richard Mofe-Damijo, Charles Okafor, and many others dominated the Nigerian movie industry.
Their exceptional performances and portrayal of roles endeared them to countless movie enthusiasts.
Omotola took to Instagram to share some iconic Nollywood films she acted in alongside Rita Dominic. She emphasized that she and her colleagues shattered barriers long before the rise of Afrobeat music and effectively introduced Nigerian entertainment to the world, even in the absence of social media.
In her post, she expressed, “Someone sent me some of these videos, and it brought back nostalgia… Despite the relatively low video quality and the absence of social media, these movies broke barriers. We pioneered Nigerian entertainment before the era of Afrobeats. We took on the world, and we continue to do so.”
In another development, Omotola Jalade-Ekehinde shared an interesting experience at a US abattoir. As reported by TSZ Naija, the actress, who relocated to the United States with her family last year, recounted a delightful moment she had with some friends.
Omotola, an avid lover of goat meat, expressed her excitement upon discovering an abattoir near Los Angeles. She mentioned her preference for goat meat over beef and revealed that her brother-in-law drives five hours from Arizona each month to bring her the desired meat.
