Following the criticism that bedeviled her for overplaying the raunchy scenes in the movie “Alter Ego”, Nigerian popular Actress, Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde has opened up on how she feels when she badly acts a sex scene.
The mother of four made said if a sex scene wouldn’t be well done, there’s no need to venture into it in the first place.
She said “when I wasn’t even that confident, I starred in a movie called The Prostitute, which was released 22 years ago. If I didn’t die then, is it now? I am ready for them.
“I don’t even like watching myself on screen. If I do, I will feel like burning inside and might even start crying because I criticise myself a lot. Sometimes, I pity those watching especially when I poorly do a sex scene. I would be like ‘what was that for?’ It can kill the whole movie when it’s poorly done. For me, if a sex scene is not going to be well done, then why do it in the first place? If you must kiss, you should be able to kiss well; make it professional.”
Also, talking about her music career, she said she would be coming back to the music industry in a way, that she would always be at concerts and she doesn’t care what people will say.
She says “I want to get back to the music industry so bad. I am coming back. It is not like I care what people are saying but I will be back soon.
“I want to do music in a way that I would always be at concerts. I don’t want to be like Tiwa Savage because that is her first career and I have movies as my first. I can’t compete with Tiwa. I like to express myself with music and I like to perform where people can come and watch me. So, I am planning on shaping my music career towards that end.”
Recall that, in 2014 the delectable Actress released a song entitled “Baren Land”, but never got the applause of fans who criticized her venturing into music, suffering a media lynching at the time.
She is however, not the only Actress who has dabbled into music and suffered a media butchering. Others are Genevieve Nnaji and Tonto Dikeh.
