I would have become a prostitute, I was very desperate – Veteran Nollywood actress, Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde
Veteran Nollywood actress, Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde, has narrated how she was close to going into prostitution to survive at a young age.
In a recent interview with media personality, Chude Jideonwo, she revealed how her father passed away when she was 13 years old.
The actress described her father’s death as a tragic incident that left her emotionless.
Omo Sexy as she is fondly called, said: “I think everything have been today, positively or negatively was because of the death of my father, it affected me so much, because I did not mourn my dad.
“I understand that I was his only child for a long time and my dad and I were very close, he was the manager of Lagos Country Club at the time, many influential people come there and because of that, I started rolling with people of influence from a little age.
“When I was 13, they came to pick me up from school, I knew something was wrong and prayed that hope nothing has happened to my dad. When I got home, I realized my dad was dead, so going through that mental process, I didn’t know how to react and I didn’t know how I was feeling, I was just silent but now that I’m older, I think I really understand everything. So I just became emotionless and it has affected me till today.
“There is nothing anyone says to me that can move me, I am so confident in who I am and I don’t fear anyone. I don’t fear for my life, probably I would have become a prostitute today, I was very desperate to do anything and said I would rather sell my body than for anybody to take my younger brother apart.”
