The movie screened alongside 11 other films in the just concluded Nollywood Travel Film Festival held in Toronto.
In the movie which treats Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), the actress played the lead role of ‘Ada’, a successful law attorney who has an unrelenting passion for prosecuting sex offenders.
Her character however, has an inordinate urge for sex as a weakness; a factor that birthed some of the sex scenes in the movie.
`Alter Ego’ was trailed with mixed reactions after its release of its first trailer due to the popular sex scene between Omotola and fellow actor, Wale Ojo.
Since her Nollywood debut in 1995, the screen diva has appeared in over 300 films, selling millions of video copies.
Beyond her show business accomplishments, she is also applauded for her remarkable humanitarian efforts.
In 2014, she was honoured by the Nigerian government as a Member of the Order of the Federal Republic for her contributions to Nigerian Entertainment Industry.
The actress recently featured in Kunle Afolayan’s ‘The Tribunal’ and is set to feature in a new movie, ‘Shadow Parties’
