Omotola made her acting debut in Hollywood in 2013 in a VH1 drama series titled Hit the Floor. The actress was part of the cast for the fifth episode of the first season of the drama series. She was chosen to act as Senegalese-American singer Akon’s date in the series. The thespian has paid her dues in the Nigerian entertainment scene, having put in over 25 years of hard work and dedication to her career before moving to the US.

  4. Ain’t she a lil too old to be breaking into Hollywood? Not age shaming but realistically, the focus is usually on young, fresh talents not accomplished veterans

    Wish her the best though

    1. Millions of young, beautiful and talented actresses working as waitresses in LA and praying for the big break in Hollywood to no avail -
      Omotola should have gone into actor /producer lane in Nollywood and push from there instead of relocating.
      Or is her marriage over?

    2. Sรณ older people don't get roles? How old do u think Gabriel Union, Angelina Jolie etc are?

    3. Well every mallam with him kettle. I don't really believe in relocating after a certain age, a time to retire and be returning back home. Nigeria must be very hard now for people to be leaving in droves.
      If you want to travel out try it maximum in your 30s when you still have energy to hussle but anything near 50 I don't really support and if you sell your property to travel out, when you make money try and replace that property, I don't support selling properties to travel. For those abroad that swore never to go ack to naija you can't be too sure.

    4. That's not true... Hollywood is not like Nollywood, also, age is just numbers, what matters most is delivery.
      Samuel L Jackson comes to mind, he was 42 when he finally made his mark in Coming to America. Not to forget Morgan Freeman, he was 50 before his big break.

      All the best to Omotola!

    5. And you say what about uzo Aduba and Voila Davis and so many others? Hello!

    6. To be honest. It is going to be superrrr hard. Hopefully she links up with tyler Perry. He can give her a few roles in his movies. She can start from there. I pray she makes it sha. But it will be very hard

    7. They are all Americans, born and raised there. Wait until you hear their Hollywood stories. Going into an industry you know no one or nothing about, and being a Nigerian, is not a pot of beans.
      It's ok to chase your dreams et al, except it's an African story, like something similar to 12 years a slave that brought out Lupita, it's going to be tough for her.
      A ga ara ya toootooo for America.

    8. How can she acts African story when she doesn't look like a typical African woman. Kate Henshaw can still fit into such role

    9. Lolll, thank God none of you are God.
      How about you just wish her the best and keep it moving.
      Some people are not afraid to reach for their dreams, must be super hard to relate, I know.

    10. Anon 14:10 has it occurred to you that some people relocate because of better healthcare,peace of mind,better transportation systems,security and better quality of life and not because they want to go and hustle?

      Delete
    11. Asin anon 15.10 see analysis unto another person life. I hope you all have your lives extremely perfect. Just wish her well. Thats all

    12. Eka that’s not what I’m saying now

      Angelina Jolie had always been in the limelight and started acting since she was quite young, same with Gabby union and co

      I’m not saying she’s too old to be in Hollywood movies, I’m saying it might be a bit difficult for her to break into Hollywood as a relatively new and unknown actress in that industry due to her age. Plus she’s black and she’s a woman. More glass ceilings for her. Hollywood loves to catch them young and white.

      Of course there are a minuscule number of exceptions like Taraji Henson but my point still stands

    13. All these ppl saying 'just wish her well', apparently, the concept of hearing the other side, is totally alien to you all. There are ppl who appreciate varying analyses, to gain greater perspectives. Not everybody wants to come on here to BORE themselves hearing everybody say the same thing. That's why it's a public platform; it's open to different viewpoints. Say ur own and move on.

    14. But there are roles for older people....a Lead characters Mother, Grandmother etc. She can be a supporting actor in a movie. She must not always be the Glam young Lead actress. There are so many other roles in a movie for older ppl.

      Delete
    15. Same thing I thought. They are making it sound like movies have just the lead actress. There are so many other roles she could act. She could even still do Nigerian movies from there. I m sure she considered all her options before moving.

    1. Amen!!! Glad she she didnt listen to naysayers advice before relocating.
      If you cant accomplish your own dreams, thats fine.
      Don't dissuade others from reaching theirs.
      She's not using your time, energy or money to do so.
      When she succeeds, you lot will gather like flies shouting 'awa daughter', 'awa kini kan' .
      If she doesn't get the big break, trust me, she's still light years away from those of you picking your nose on the sidelines of your own life.๐Ÿ™‚

  10. If you have lived abroad, you will understand what I said about Nigerian celebrities. They lack poise. The only Nigerian celebrity working on himself and getting it right is Ik Osekioduwa. Other na local champions. Omotola should work on herself first. Did you not watch that her reality?

  11. Anon 15:13 so those American actors are angels or they have two heads??. Omotola I wish you best of luck jare.

  12. To break into Hollywood she might have to do some low budget movies first and knack one or two high profile agents...it is what it is

  13. She is a known Nigerian veteran and not a wannabe, if she has the right contacts, and with God's intervention, she will make her mark. Black actors were leaving London in droves 15 years ago, due to racism and are making it big in the states.

  14. Because many of you can't even get the opportunity so jealousy has eating you people up ,even if she get mama role is it not good for her ,many of you will gladly get driver work if you ever get the opportunity to relocate,instead of wishing her well and move on,awon analyst isonu

  15. I wish her all the best. But she needs a
    strategy. You see elite white people you can work with them, interact with them but not all will accept you into their inner circles. The micro racism is too much. You will feel different without anyone telling you. First of all she has an accent that is not American. Don't want to be Debbie downer but why should she acept low budget movies as some suggests. Even Tyler Perry movies is not that great. Americans can be very picky and critical.

  16. I don’t know her age but many people are leaving Nigeria because it has zero health care & they want to increase their odds of living long though it’s all in God’s hands. Many die needlessly of ailments that were either never properly diagnosed nor treated at young ages in Nigeria. It’s not everyone that can continue living on the edge with the possibility of home invasion robbery (a rarity here), traffic armed robbery, and mafia operated kidnappings/terror attacks. Ask yourself how many countries will tolerate kidnappers holding some victims 2 months after the kaduna train attack? Where does that happen? Keep defending mediocrity and criticizing those who choose to struggle to leave. Pray that Nigeria does not implode. Many fiddle while Rome is burning. Owanbes, BBNs, BBL etc while ordinary CPR cannot be performed & rich folks die in Uber en route substandard hospitals at 50 something. Very few ambulances even in Lagos! No CPR trainings that teenagers take before babysitting here! Even if she cleans or is a PA in LA, as long as she is content & has peace, she has already made her mark in life.

    She was a member of the Oscar Academy well before Funke’s nomination this year! Let’s fix Nigeria! Many of us thought we would retire there years ago but not anymore! We tried from here, funded or helped endsars one way or another but there is no critical mass of peaceful focused persistent protesters to force mediocre, corrupt rulers out. May God help us all. To those traditional religion folks especially those that “jazz” relatives whose money they feel entitled to, why don’t you target your wickedness on your wicked rulers? Your relative in the diaspora is overtaxed & going through inflation as well. Use all your village power against governors wearing N300m wristwatch not your Aunty or cousin schooling or working in the US.

  17. Watch Genevieve & Omotola on Netflix! You will see the mediocrity in current Nollywood! “Ije the Journey”, “Alter ego”, “Tango with me”, etc are masterpieces compared to the mediocrity that is causing Netflix move their African hub away from Nigeria to SA

  18. Even RMD lives more in the US nowadays
