One of Nollywood’s greatest, Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde, has revealed why she would have ended up in prostitution today.
Jalade-ekeinde, who has now relocated to the United States, revealed this an interview with Chude Jidenwo.
She told With #Chude: “I think everything I 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 realised 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.”
