Veteran Nollywood actress, Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde has opened up that she would have ended up as a prostitute if not for the movie industry.
Omotola stated this while recounting her childhood experience in an interview with Chude Jideonwo, a Nigerian filmmaker.
According to her, she was very desperate to sell her body after the death of her father when she was 13 years old.
“When I was 13, they came to pick me up from school, I knew something was wrong and prayed that nothing had happened to my dad,” Omotola said.
“When I got home, I realized my dad was dead, so going through that mental process, I did not know how to react and I did not know how I was feeling, I was just silent, but now that I am older, I think I really understand everything.
“There’s nothing anyone says to me that can move me, I’m so confident in who I’m, and I don’t fear anyone. I don’t fear for my life, probably I would’ve 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.”
