Omotola has within the space of 10 years been able to play major roles in numerous movies. She has played a prostitute, a prisoner, the lonely housewife, the bitchy manipulator and the girl next door. Omotola radiates the aura of a real star. She recently waxed a music album titled 'Gba' in 2006, and she sees herself as moving up like one rung from just being an actor to an entertainer. Omosexy as she is called by her fans, would not respond to anything that she claims "does not add value to my life".

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 is working on her second album to be released the early part of 2009.
