Movie Directors Can No Longer Afford Me - Actress Omotola Jalade by Giftedhand92: 1:19am On Aug 05, 2018
Nollywood sweetheart, Omotola Jalade Ekehinde used to be the face of the Nigerian film industry in years past, although still a celebrated actress in the growing industry, one can count on the fingertips the number of movies the alluring mother of four has appeared in recent times.


Just like her colleague, Jim Iyke, Omosexy has revealed that the reason responsible for her absence on the movie scene is the inability of directors to pay her worth.

“Most can’t afford me, some can’t afford what it takes to have me on set. It is a new terrain, all will balance out soon,” she said, during a question and answer session with her fans on Insta-story.

The ‘Blood Sister’ role interpreter further indulged her lovers by answering the question of why she included ‘Omosexy’ to her name and how she dealt with people’s perception of such a sensual name.

“My husband added ‘Omosexy’ to my name. I didn’t mind what people would perceive of me because of the name. People will always fall in line with what you present ultimately,” she noted.

Married to Captain Matthew Ekehinde, Omotola briefly returned to the big screens with an electrifying performance in the 2017 blockbuster, ‘Alter Ego’.

It is time for Nollywood to upgrade her game and stop producing backyard movies, so they attract the best hands

An indication that the industry in Nigeria is crap. I have never heard an actor/actress go off the screen in Hollywood claiming movie producers cannot afford her fee

That's an interesting analysis , however , I hope she has established herself and her business otherwise we don't want to hear about actor needing help

The reason this elderly, overweight, ugly and pompous woman continues to be relevant outside her matrimonial home, is truly a mystery.

Only a fat old man with a pot belly would be attracted to such a faded antiquity whose assets were conquered by gravity decades ago.

That's a funny thing for an actress to say... isn't that how an actress becomes irrelevant? By not acting? undecided

I'm yet to hear an American actress feel she's too big or too expensive for their directors... but what do I know.

I'm with you on this... it's like she's purposefully obsoleting herself from acting. Which is not necessarily a bad thing, as long as she has other streams of income, though brand endorsements are given to people who are popular. Can she remain popular without acting?

You're an actress by acting movies not by taking pictures.
If they can't 'afford' you it is probably because they can get someone who will do it better and cheaper.

In Nigeria when competition from the abundant talents we have force some people out, they hide under the excuse that producers can no longer afford them. No doubt you and Jim Ik have quality talent for what you do, but I still have not seen what you did that many of the actors today have not done even better in some cases. What I think that is happening naturally is that you are gradually paving way for the younger ones. Just as those on the stage today will definitely get to a level when they will pave way for others. And these things happen whether one likes it or not.
