Nollywood actress and Brand Ambassador, Omotola Jalade Ekeinde turned 40 on the 7th of February 2018, and to celebrate the big age, the mother of four set out out five days to give back to the community, as well as do other things.
Omotola Jalade who kicked off her 40th birthday celebration on February 7 with a ‘Give And Let Give To Widows And Orphans’ event, told Premium Times;
I have always had a soft spot for widows and orphans for many years now because I can relate to their plight. My mum was a widow for 10 years before she passed on 16 years ago. I am also an orphan so I do what it feels like to be an orphan.
”My team have always showed love and encouraged widows who have strived to keep the home front in order despite the demise of their spouses.”
The event would be followed by Couples Retreat themed “Reciprocate, Respect, Mental Health And Avoiding Slavery In Marriage” on February 8.
The grand ball, which was the grand finale of the five days event had in attendance, Africa's richest man, Aliko Dangote, and lots pf Nollywood celebrities.
