Nollywood actress, Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde who will turn 40 on February 7, has said that she will stage a five-day event which will kick off from February 7 to 11.
According to Premium Times, the actress who made her acting debut in 1995 at age 17 in Venom of Justice, said the week-long event will begin with a widows and orphan birthday outreach.
This, she says, will be followed by a couple’s retreat, a renaissance trip to trace the beginning of slavery and a symposium with the theme “Mental Slavery and The Emancipation Of The Black Race.”
“The climax will be an Omotola grand ball to be held in Lagos,” she said.
After shooting roughly 300 movies, Omotola received her first cinematic movie role in the 2010 film, Ije.
The film was shot on locations in Jos, California and Los Angeles.
Ije was the highest grossing Nollywood film at the time – a feat later broken by another film, Phone Swap (2012). That feat has since been surpassed by several other movies.
