Omotola named among world’s highest-grossing movie stars

Omotola In Atlanta

Yahoo compiled the list of ‘The Highest-Grossing Movie Stars You’ve Probably Never Heard Of’ and Omotola was listed among the top 10.

Below is what Yahoo wrote about Omotola who was 9th on the list;

“Omotola Jalade Ekeinde
Total box-office: Unknown

We’ll wager not only have you not heard of Omotola Jalade Ekeinde or ‘Omosexy’ as her fans call her but we reckon you probably haven’t even heard of the industry she spearheads: Nollywood.

Yes, that’s Nigeria’s version Hollywood, in which Omosexy dominates – she has over 300 film credits to her name (although most go straight to video). In her homeland she’s like a cross between Oprah Winfrey and Kim Kardashian, with her own reality TV series following her and her family.
Though it’s nigh on impossible to determine what her box-office total is, given that the Nigerian film industry is mostly one that distributes through market stalls and street corners, it is estimated to be worth upwards of £320 million a year – and Omosexy is a Nollywood cornerstone.”
