Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde - Afrian Voices - December 2013 - BellaNaija 01
The actress who was called the “Queen of Nollywood” by Stella Magazine, speaks to CNN correspondent Vladimir Duthiers about her upbringing, career achievements, passion for activism and future plans.

“I’ve reached a point in my life where I’ve realised I have to leave something. I have to have a legacy. I decided I will be an activist for Africa. My experience with the UN and other humanitarian organisations inspired me to want to speak out and say more and there’s so much you can just say with words. This was my motivation for singing.”
