Why are people always intent on casting a slur when one of our own is making good progress? Isn’t the success of one a success for all? Omotola has done so much for the movie industry and what she is achieving now is only fruits of her labor from all the years of hard work? So why try to disparage her image?
A blogger named Sheifunmi is currently making an allegation that Omotola paid $650,00 to get on the Time 100 list. The suggestion of this allegation alone cast a big question mark on the blogger who has no idea the authority Time Magazine wields which would not even entertain a case of monetary bribery. Anyway, below is the full allegation she made. Read it and judge for yourself:
“Before we get into it and stans or celebrities with mild relevance start coming at me with a bullet-less gun thinking they have a shot, let’s get one thing out of the way; This is a gossip type website. Any information contained on this site is reported as rumor and not actual facts unless receipts (proofs) are shown, official news/confirmation from a celeb’s rep/camp or i am talking about my own experiences. Do not take offense to any material on this site because everyone has the right to their side of the story. I am willing to hear all sides. Anyone in this industry, including myself will be subject to being put on blast. What you see is what you get! This is all for your own entertainment purposes… Now moving on.
An insider who happens to work closely with the most loved actress squealed details about Omotola making 2013 TIME Magazine 100 (Most Influential People in the World) list, stating that the actress paid a whooping sum of 650,000 dollars (which is over a 100 million naira if converted) to get a slot on that list.
Now i don’t know how true this is but i won’t find it amusing if she paid to make the list. Rich people (especially Nigerians) tend to pay for a lot of things (like Grammy, MTV, Bet award tickets which comes in different packages but the one they mostly go for is the full package with the hotel covered, access to Clive David’s pre-grammys party, red carpet, a seat next to a celebrity and after party, Forbes list, etc) to get recognized or live that ‘party with celebrities’ lifestyle.”
