Omotola Jalade Ekeinde: Even Talent Is Not Enough


    Nollywood’s Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde says entertainers should not neglect the importance of education. In her speech delivered in a Conference held at the Grand Ballroom of Eko Hotels and Suites, the Nollywood star employed her fellow entertainers not to be satisfied with the level of exposure they currently have. ‘Education is not compulsory but will take you farther. Your talent is not enough’, she explained. Ekeinde who kicked off the Social Responsibility Session with her speech ‘Why We Should Care’ also made a call to Nigerian entertainers to take up the roles of leaders in the society because ‘entertainers are the real leaders’. ‘Entertainers are the true leaders. We have been the sleeping giant for too long. Let’s wake up and leads. Let’s use our influence right’, she explained. But she warned people who have accused her of politicing with ‘people in high places’ not to mention her name in such discussions. ‘Somebody on a blog a few days ago wrote said Nollywood personalities are friends with politicians and spending the money together. SEE MORE AFTER CUT>>>>>>>> I Omotola have never campaigned or partied with any Government, so don’t mention my name among those who do that. I have suffered enough for refusing to party with them and take Ghana Must go backs, so don’t let me suffer more’, Omotola added ‘If as an entertainer you want to you want to be friends with politicians, do so without aligning your brand with whatever the politicians stand for’, she adviced.
