Omotola Ekeinde burst into the Nollywood film industry with the movie “Mortal Inheritance” (1995) where she played a sickle-cell patient who fights for her life even when she knows she might not be able to live. This film which received good reviews, won her awards for her role in the movie and is still known as one of Nigeria’s best movies ever made. she has starred in blockbuster movies like “Games Women Play”, “Blood Sisters”, “All my life”, “Last Wedding”,My StoryThe Woman in Meand a host of others.

She features as a writer for the Saturday SUN (Omotola’s Diary) and occasionally gets involved in Social Services for women and charity homes.

In the year 2005 some actors were found to have been collecting huge fees from producers due to the fact of their A-list celebrity status. The Actor’s Guild of Nigeria thereby placed the actors on a 1-year ban due to the behaviour. Among the actors were Omotola Ekeinde, Genevieve Nnaji, Stella Damasus Aboderin, Nkem Owoh, Ramsey Noah, Pete Edochie, Richard Mofe Damijo. This caused some actors to venture into music. The ban placed on these actors was seen as “doom” in Nollywood, since these were the industry “shakers”. But the actors, including Omotola, have returned to filming movies.

Omotola Jalade in 2012  joined Amnesty International a non-governmental organisation focused on human rights. The objective of the organisation is “to conduct research and generate action to prevent and end grave abuses of human rights, and to demand justice for those whose rights have been violated. she was nominated in 2012 for the Best Actress in a leading role in the Nollywood Movie Awards (NMA) for her role in the film “Private Storm”. She was also nominated for Best Actress in Supporting Role in the 2012 African Movie Academy Awards (AMAA) for her role in the film “Ties that Bind”.
