OMOTOLA ON THE COVER OF GLAM AFRICA MAGAZINE
5 KEY THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT ANTICIPATED NEW MOVIE, ALTER EGO
In celebration of Omotola’s return to the big screen, the legendary superstar is the cover star of our Glam Africa magazine’s latest issue ‘The Career Edition’, for this cover feature, she speaks to the magazine about her three-year hiatus, insight into her time out of the spotlight and why “Alter Ego” – a hard-hitting film already praised by critics – is so important for women and society as a whole. As a human rights activist in her spare time, Omotola plays an attorney seeking justice for young girls and women.
Here are five key things we learn about the movie in her interview with Glam Africa:
– Alter Ego explores PTSD and mental health issues
– Omotola turned down a number of scripts during her time out of the spotlight, but felt the “Alter Ego” script was “a Godsend”
– Omotola worked closely with Direct Moses Inwang to make sure everything was perfect
– Omotola was heavily involved in the script process
– Shooting the film took over 12 months
Omotola also revealed “When I got the script, I wasn’t actually ready to go back to the big screen, but I liked the script and story. A lot of people don’t talk about PTSD and mental illness in Nigeria, and I like to bring attention to such issues … I wanted something meaningful, the kind of project that I would be proud of having helped create.”
According to Glam Africa’s Editor, Fadekemi Sulaiman “We are proud to be celebrating the legendary and inspiring Omotola. This brilliant new film that will no doubt further solidify her as true Nollywood and African royalty”.
