Legendary superstar Omotola Jalade Ekeinde is the cover of The Career Edition of Glam Africa magazine’s latest issue, in celebration of the Nollywood screen diva’s return to the big screen. 

In the accompanying spread, she speaks to the magazine about her three-year acting hiatus and why the Alter Ego movie – 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.

Omotola also talked about her attachment to the movie saying

“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”.
