Veteran actress, Omotola Jalade Ekeinde was a guest on Channels TV‘s early morning show “Sunrise,” and there, she discussed her love for human rights activism, her acting career, and the role her family plays in balancing both worlds.

She also talked about the reason she went into modeling before she started her acting career.

On her love for activism 

I’ve always been an activist, as far back as when I was a child. That’s what drives me. I tell people I’m more of an activist than a humanitarian and people sometimes get it confusing.

For me, my passion is human rights. I look forward to a time in my life where everyone can pursue their rights, stand up for their rights and fight for their rights.

If my rights were trampled upon, I look forward to a just society where I can actually sue and get compensation for that, so that people wouldn’t trample on people’s right anymore because you know that someone’s gonna take it up. that’s how you have a sane society.

Society is not sane today, not because we have the worst president in the world but because we have the worse judiciary. When you have a society that the law works and is enforced, everyone will fall in line.

Her advice to young girls

Know what you want from the beginning. You’re never too young to have a dream and you’re never too young to start a plan. I remember as far back as when I was 15, I wrote down all my dreams. Most of them I have done. Write down your dreams. Aim high. Don’t be afraid. You are in the age gap where it is easy to dream and dream big you must. Dream big but most importantly, write down your dreams, goals, and vision. Also, see to it that you always read them and work towards them. Listen to your parents, they know what they are saying but have your convictions yourself.

Educate yourself. You are in the generation where you have the internet and a lot of information, use it wisely. Don’t use social media to be there and slay and get into everybody’s business. Use it mostly to inform yourself. Just get all this wealth of knowledge.

Be prepared because when an opportunity comes and you’re not prepared, it will pass you by onto the next person.
