Omotola Jalade Ekeinde has made waves and is still making high waves in the world of make belief but that world where she rules like a colossus is a different kettle of fish from the real world where everything is real – no cuts, edit or re-cast.
Therefore, it was no surprise when the Nollywood diva initially expressed reservations about her reality show tagged “Omotola: Real Me”. According to her, “if I sit down and tell you I’m confident about this, I would be lying to you. I’m very nervous about the show because everything about me is going to be in the public domain now” she said.
But contrary to her fears, initial reports indicate that the show which premiered yesterday, Thursday, November 6th on DSTV, shattered the records of AfricaMagic Entertainment (DSTV Channel 151) as the most watched TV show of all time.
According to reports, more than 30 minutes before the airing of the show, the channel started experiencing heavy traffic and as the show eventually started, nearly every home that has access to the channel or other medium, tuned in.
With this news, the beautiful and sexy actress can be rest assured that the project will not ‘mar’ her career as she first feared, but may actually go on to catapault her to new heights than ever before.
Who watched the show yesterday? Did it meet your expectations or not?
