November 30, 2016 – Omotola Jalade Warns Against Inter Religious Marriages “Christians Who Marry Unbelievers Are On Their Own”

Nigerian actress Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde who was one of the speakers at the Innovation Warehouse, a mentorship programme for aspiring filmmakers and actors during the just concluded Africa International Film Festival in Lagos, has given an insight into what makes an marriage to work.

The mother of four was advising young aspiring female actors and filmmakers who seek stardom, but are worried they might end up not finding the right man once they get into limelight.

Omosexy, as she’s fondly called, dished out free counseling when a lady asked why fame usually come the way of celebrity marriages.

“It’s better to be an enemy to a work partner than to your family,” said Omotola.

Speaking further, she stated that for a marriage to work in the entertainment industry, partners must be of the same faith. “They must believe in you. If you’re a Christian and you marry someone who is not born again then you are on your own.

“Your partner needs to be stronger than you. They are the ones getting the aftermath of your own action.
“Choose a partner who understands entertainment. Don’t choose your fan. Personally, I don’t believe in love at first sight.

“Pick someone who sees your heart, your soul, someone who sees the real you and not afraid to tell you about your flaws.

“Discipline is key. Everyone wants freedom but too much freedom is bad. Be disciplined. It’s better to be an enemy to a work partner than to your family. Learn to say No!

“We are like nurses and doctors in the industry because we can be called upon at anytime”.

She also advised against giving in to advances to get movie roles. “Sometimes you will get a role for giving yourself out but you won’t be able to retain it. If you become famous it will later hunt you. But don’t run away from your sexuality, don’t shy away from who you are, enjoy who you are, come on there but come out with substance.

Omotola got married to a pilot, Captain Matthew Ekeinde in 1996; they are both blessed with four kids.

  1. Big Daddy, I am say you are having sense to be knowing say I can posibul to be commenting wetin is dey wise for this story. You go born pikin weyris smoke igbo like me.
    Bok or wetin am I call upon your name, abeg leave Omotola alones bicos she no lie upon you. Wetin she was say na true. She was not biliving say love is a first sight bicos she no gree when her hosband was first beg her say he wanting to marry her. So her hosband come nill down for ground come de cry de beg her. She no still gree. So her hosband come drink rat poison to comit suya side. But he was having lock say he no dies for the poison. So when Omotola was hear am say the man was small thing to dying bicos of her, she was a haver of messi for him and she come fall in love on top of him. So they was marry. So is that love weyris first sight? It doesn’t posibul.

  2. She is right tho.is normal for people to fall inlove at first sight, but that doesn’t determine a future together. Most of these love at first sight only happens wen you are captivated by one’s beauty/handsomeness. And then we start falling for such person claiming that is love. lol.
    But just imagine if the person is no longer as handsome or beautiful as u first met them, then u now realize that what you feel is not really love.
    So honestly, like she said, the best thing is to find someone who knows your heart, who loves you for real despite your flaws or weakness.
    But the best thing is to pray to God because nothing is ever perfect without Him
