Omotola Jalade: Nollywood actress says she doesn’t “care much” if her daughters marry at 18‎


Nollywood Diva, Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde divulged in an interview that ‎only her husband can control her strong personality‎ and if she hadn’t married him, Captain Matthew Ekeinde, she probably wouldn’t have gotten married.

In her words, “I don’t think there is any man that can handle me apart from my husband. Not because I am a bad person, it is because I am a very strong personality. I can understand why a lot of female artistes find it very difficult to find the right person” she told Vanguard.

“When you achieve some kind of success, you become really confused as to who really loves you for who you are. It’s not really easy, it is very hard finding those people who really love you. If you are not a very grounded person, you can also contribute in some kind of way to your own problems and so I might have contributed to my own problems” she added.

‎Omotola Jalade recently got an endorsement deal with her second daughter, Meraiah and was asked her thoughts on her daughters ‎going into entertainment or marrying early like Omotola herself did.

She replied, “Absolutely, she can come into the industry. What our generation is doing by God’s grace is to make sure that we work hard to leave infrastructure for them. I don’t want my daughter to meet the industry the way I met it. Luckily, we have been able to take some steps, we are working very hard. As you know, I am building my film village.”‎

On the part of marriage at 18, the screen diva says she doesn’t “care much about it‎” as far as she “like the guy and we feel like she is mature enough to handle it and the person is responsible, then why not? We can endorse it. I don’t regret anything. Everything is a blessing to me. I won’t stop her, but it just has to be the right person. I married the right person” she said.
