OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE + NEW PHOTOS


Atlanta, GA (April 18, 2013) – Nollywood superstar actress, musician and philanthropist, Omotola Jalade Ekeinde gains the coveted position in the most respected and anticipated list of the year, the 2013 TIME 100 Most Influential People In The World. Previous honorees have included Barack Obama, Oprah Winfrey, and Angelina Jolie.

As Africa’s leading lady of showbiz, Omotola joins the select few elite from around the world who TIME Magazine honors as the globes’ most distinguished individuals and who have amassed global achievements in their respective industries. After nearly two decades of consistent on screen success, the African Jewel’s accomplishments have been recognized as a pioneering force of the Nollywood film industry.

Omotola has received dozens of accolades, however, being noted on the TIME 100 not only catapults her superstardom but also reinforces the African film industry as a global powerhouse. Omotola’s influence has transcended across the African continent thanks to her stellar award-winning performances, respected humanitarian efforts, and being coined “The African Magic” by international media outlets alike.

Michael Djaba of I Factory Live & leading African entertainment provider OH BOX remarks, “Omotola epitomizes the 21st century African woman and after executive producing her successful reality show, Omotola: The Real Me, it’s with great joy we congratulate her being recognized as one of the most influential people in the world. She has so much more to come.”

In celebration of the honor, Omotola has been invited to New York City for the TIME 100 Gala on April 23, and will be rubbing shoulders alongside other honorees such as Michelle Obama, Beyoncé, and Steven Spielberg.

The full list and related tributes appear in the April 29 issue of TIME, available on newsstands and tablets on Friday, April 19, and now at www.time.com/time100.
