Omotola’s 40th birthday celebration tagged #Omotola4point0 kicked off her with a party for widows and orphans in Lagos last Wednesday.
The actress 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.”
After her ‘Give And Let Give To Widows And Orphans’ event, a Couples Retreat, themed “Reciprocate, Respect, Mental Health And Avoiding Slavery In Marriage” followed on February 8.
There was also a ”Renaissance Trip To Trace The Beginning Of Slavery” on February 9, 2018 which was where Omotola told Nigerians to stop using their money to buy data they will use to insult celebrities.
This event was followed by a Symposium on “Mental Slavery And The Emancipation Of The Black Race” on Saturday.
The climax was on February 11 when Omotola Jalade Ekeinde celebrated her 40th birthday with a ball, themed “The Omosexy Ball.”
