Omotola Gives Back To The Society

Omotola at SOS children village in Lagos

Star actress and mother of four, Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde’s charitable side
was again displayed recently when she stormed the Heart of Gold Hospices and
SOS children village in Isolo, Lagos. The beautiful actress who’s charitable
side has never been in question was right at hand to give twenty percent of
proceeds from her album sales to charity as was promised during her album
launch.

Commencing the two-day charity tour was a four-hour visit to the Heart Of
Gold Hospices by the actress and members of OYEP (Omotola Youth Empowerment
Programme) on the 15th of December, 2010; guided by Mrs. Adedoyin the
founder of the orphanage, the star actress cum musician went round the
orphanage and showed her sympathy to the children while revealing that she
can’t imagine the wickedness that exists in the mind of the parents of some
of the children. The most sympathetic part of her visit was her meeting a
baby who suffered from a formation malfunction at this point. The
*Gba*crooner couldn’t hide her emotional side as she was almost moved
to tears at the little boy’s plight, she thereafter moved to other
rooms where she
motivated and played with the kids before giving out gifts that
include toiletries, clothes and products from Chivita.

The next day, on the 16th, the Omotola Give-and-Let-Give train moved to the
SOS children village isolo. Where Omotola and her crew met with the social
official in-charge. The social official in charge then showed the crew round
the village: to the children’s hostels, classroom, the children where so
elated to see the role model pay them a visit as the mother of four advised
the children to be focus and be good children. Omotola and her crew then
donated, cloths, shoes, food stuff, biscuit, and products from Chivita to
SOS village.

Explaining the rationale behind her visit to the orphanage, Omotola
disclosed that it is pertinent to give back to the society, “All religions
encourage this, it is a sure way to make other people happy and the sad
thing is that these children did not put themselves in this position, they
met themselves in that condition because of some people’s mistakes, said
Omotola who is also a UN ambassador for World Food Programme (WFP).

It will be good to note that all through Omotola’s career that has spanned
over 15 years, the actress has in one way or the other being a
‘philanthropist-celebrity’ just last year, she became the first African to
step into the shoes of Nicholas Cage and Bono when she was engaged by the
biggest non-governmental organization (NGO), Amnesty International in
war-torn Sierra Leone to raise awareness for the menace of high maternal
mortality rate.
