Omotola "Omosexy" Has Been Named As One of The World's Top Grossing Movie Stars By Yahoo

Omotola's success story is one that has gone past Africa, Yahoo listed her among the top grossing movie stars that are not well noticed in the world. Omosexy was more than happy to share the news on her facebook page which she captioned "Hopefully someday this could be a thing of the past? ... # gratefulstill # omosexy @20 # 20yrsanniversary https://uk.yahoo.com/movies/the-highest-grossing-movie-stars-youvenever-107601608266.html?cmp=ukfb". Below is what yahoo had to say about her.
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.
