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”.
