OMOSEXY WINS SEXIEST ACTRESS AWARD
Fresh from hosting a 5-star album launch she performed in , Omotola Jalade Ekeinde has continued to prove that her nom de plume, 'Omosexy', was earned through hard work, focus, self denial and public acceptance as she has emerged Vanguardmedia's 'Sexiest Woman in Nollywood' in their Nollywood 2009 Reloaded Awards.
Omotola polled a total of 11, 622 votes , giving her a clear lead over runner-up, Genevieve Nnaji who polled 10,677 votes and second runner-up, Chika Ike, who polled 8,579 votes. Other contenders are Mercy Johnson who was voted fourth, Cossy, Orjiakor, Ini Edo, Oge Okoye, Ebube Nwagbo, Chioma Chukwuka, and Tonto Dike. Omotola also wears the Best Booty of Nollywood crown with 5,207 votes.
Though many keep wondering how she has continued to keep her features intact even after four children, Omotola's emergence as the sexiest actress in Nollywood is no surprise to many in the industry as she has continued to keep herself relevant in the industry catching up with new international trends that can make her compete favorably with actresses across the globe. Her latest movie, Ije is the longest running Nigerian movie in the cinemas.
Five years after she took her passion for music seriously by making an album, Omotola hosted a 5-star album launch for her sophomore album late last month at the Eko Hotels and Suites.
