The mother of four said that her father died when she was 12 years old, describing it as a devastating event that left her emotionless because she never grieved his death.

Because of the difficulties she endured at a young age, the actress said she was on the verge of turning to prostitution to survive.

“I think everything has been today, positively or badly, because of my father’s death, it affected me so deeply,” Omotola Jalade remarked.

I did not weep for my father.

“I understand that I was his only kid for a long time and my dad and I were very close, he was the manager of Lagos country club at the time, many powerful people visit there and because of that, I started rolling with people of influence from a young age.

“When they came to bring me up from school when I was 13, I felt something was wrong and prayed that nothing bad had happened to my father.

“When I arrived home, I learned my father was gone, so I didn’t know how to respond and I didn’t know how I was feeling, so I was just mute, but now that I’m older, I guess I understand.”

Everything is clear to me. So I just became emotionless, and it has stayed with me to this day.

“There is nothing anyone says to me that can move me, I am so confident in who I am and I don’t fear anyone. I don’t fear for my life; I would have probably become a prostitute today because I was desperate to do anything and declared I would rather sell my body than have anyone tear my younger brother apart.”
