Omotola-Jalade-EkeindeNollywood actress, Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde, is at the moment gliding on the waves of good times as manifest in the recent job she secured to model for a vibrant brand.

Judging from the reaction of her fans, the veteran actress did not fail to dazzle and nail the advert with her gorgeous looks. Omotola stunned in the new photos for the leading online brand.

The actress, who recently secured an endorsement deal with P&G’s Pampers, must have added a few more millions to her already fat bank account with Nigeria’s leading online retail store, – Konga’s marketplace deal.

“We wanted Nigerians around the world to know about Konga’s Online Marketplace and who is better to help us spread the word than Nigeria’s sweetheart, Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde. Once we told her about the marketplace, she was excited and agreed to be a part of it all,” a statement by the company read. In the television commercial recorded in Lagos, viewers will see Omotola explain how easy it is to become a seller, and how lucrative it can be, while also following the transaction of a Konga Marketplace seller. Not long ago, Omotola was listed by New Africa Magazine as one of the 100 richest, most powerful and Most Influential Africans alive today, and that was not by coincidence.In addition to Omotola making the list, what most of her fans found even more interesting was the fact that Nigerians constituted a whopping 23% of the list with an incredibly wide spread over all categories, as well as dominating the business scene. Next was South Africa, taking up 22% of the list.

According to the organisers, the list was all about “the powerful, the rich, the fastest, the first as well as spiritual leaders, political game changers, global superstars and a slew of sporting record breakers to rival the world’s best”.

Since her Nollywood film debut in 1995, the leading actress has appeared in 300 films, selling millions of video copies. SEE MORE ON Page2
