Yahoo! Movies Names Omotola as One The Highest-Grossing Movie Stars

Omotola
Nigerian actress and businesswoman Omotola Jalade Ekeinde was listed among the list of the highest-grossing movie stars that has never been heard of.
The list highlight actors and actresses who have achieved great success for their work but receive little international recognition.

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.
