“Why I Don’t Have Close Friends In Nollywood” – Omotola Shares

Nollywood veteran actress, Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde has shared why she doesn’t have close friends in the Nollywood movie industry. In a recent chat with Potpourri, the actress emphatically stated that all she has in the industry are colleagues and never close friends. She said:
“Most of my friends are friends I have had forever. I am a very loyal person. I try to keep a very small group of friends. It is not that I don’t make new friends, but I call them acquaintances. When you say friends, they are people I have known for a long time,since I was a child,” “Everybody is my colleague. I don’t have very close friends in the industry,”.

When asked why, she explained:

“We don’t live around each other to start with. I live very far away from so many people. Secondly,I am not too much of a party person. We probably won’t see often. I am also not very good at visiting people, so, we probably won’t have that kind of bond.”
