Star actress Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde has disclosed that she’ll be returning to the music studio soon.
She made this known in an interview published in Punch newspaper when asked if she will be making a return into music studio soon, she said: “Oh! Of course.”
The mother of four, who recently won the best actress AMVCA 2018 in a drama series, further added “I know a lot of people get shocked when I say that I love singing more than acting, but that is just the truth and I would have to speak my truth. I know that people think I have not ‘blown’ (made it big) as a singer so they expect me to just say acting is my love, but I would shock the world soon.
Recall that OmoSexy, as she is fondly called launched her music career in 2005 with the release of her debut album titled GBA. The album produced the singles “Naija Lowa” and “The Things You Do To Me.”
Her unreleased sophomore album, Me, Myself, and Eyes, brought in production from Paul Play and Del B. It was supported by the songs “Feel Alright” (featuring Harry Song) and “Through the Fire” (featuring Uche). The album’s launch party was scheduled to hold in Nigeria, and tables were expected to sell for N1 million.
In late 2012, Omotola began working on her third album and enlisted the help of The Bridge Entertainment. She headed to the musical mecca of Atlanta GA to work with some prominent producers and songwriters who could help create a sound that would resonate to American audiences. Studio sessions included Grammy-winning producer Kendrick Dean, Drumma Boy, Verse Simmonds. She also recorded with Grammy recording artist Bobby V.
