Actress Omoni Oboli Says "I Almost Gave up on Acting but Look at Me Now"-

For Award-winning Nollywood Actress, Director and Producer, life hasn’t
been a bed of roses as she almost packed her bags when she returned to
Nollywood years ago.








The actress who decided to take a break from acting in 1996 to complete
her studies and to give birth to three boys returned to Nollywood in 2009
only to see there was practically no place for her in the industry.

The delectable actress had to show doggedness and resilience in a bid to
show the industry that quitting is not on the menu for her ‘’ I did
Figurine and Anchor Baby shortly after I came back, the two movies made
weighty impacts in the then returning cinema culture’’ Omoni recounts.

Despite the fact that she was making a re-entry into the industry, she
turned down scripts that didn’t align with her ideals ‘’I decided to take
the more difficult but surer route to where I wanted, which is the route
of ‘only good quality jobs’. I decided with my husband and team then that
if the movie production did not spark my interest in terms of a good
storyline and high production value, I won’t do it. It cost me a lot as I
wasn’t doing as
many jobs as many of my colleagues then. Often, even when the money
offered was very attractive, I turned down roles because the movie
production was not what I wanted’’.






The A-list actress whose last three movies Being Mrs Elliot, The First
Lady and Wives on Strike have made box office hits with the last one
becoming the third highest grossing Nollywood movie of all time at the
cinema now has a new work on the horizon titled Okafor’s Law.

Okafor’s Law though yet-to-be-released recently got nominated at the
Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), one of the top 5 film
festivals in the world.

Speaking on the nomination, the amiable actress said ‘’ The selection of
Okafor’s Law, which is my most ambitious movie ever as an actress,
producer and director, at TIFF makes me emotional and nostalgic. I
remember the many nights and days of sacrifices, going the extra mile and
not getting enough credit. The TIFF selection is a form of validation for
my work and I am grateful to God’’.







She went on to thank the cast and crew of Okafor’s Law and with an
emotion-laden show of gratitude, she said '’I say a huge thank you to the
entire cast and crew of Okafor’s Law. Words fail me in this moment, but I
deeply appreciate all of them for giving me their best so
that this movie turned out the way it is. If I have another chance to do

this again, I will certainly do it again with this cast and crew’’.

First Omoni is not an A list actress she is only known in lagos and on blogs,Ononi is not popular, she helped herself with hyping herself on blogs.

Adisa Akomolede said...

Yall come here to spill hate from your months. This woman of virtue @omoni is the most hardworking nollywood actress ive ever met. She was the first to start coming to the cinemas for meet and greet and even go behind the box office at the cinemas to sell her movies. She deserves every good thing she has gotten. You guys think its easy to have three boys and a Happy home and also make box office hits straight in Nigeria cinema. Omoni Oboli you deserve the very best life offers and im sure you wont settle for less. #omonifamtilljesuscomes.
