According to information made available to, sultry Nollywood actress, Omotola Jalade Ekeinde has shown the lovely side of her as a mother and wife to some selected widows numbering 20.

The Ondo State born Star actress engaged the widows in a 5-day workshop makeover event tagged 'The 20 Widows Makeover', which was done in memory of her mother who died 10 years ago.

Omosexy, as she is fondly called by fans, gave the widows first class treatments. She made them undergo some beauty routines ranging from facial and body massage, total body makeover (facial, hairstyle, costume, etc) done by some professionals in the business.

Top celebrity photographer, Kelechi Amadi was on hand to give the widows nice photo-shoot session after they were made to go for a shopping extravaganza.

The widows were showered gifts at the main event held in Lekki, where they were given bags of rice, kitchen utensils and many other gifts.

In her words, the Amnesty International Ambassador said, “This is something I wish or someone had done for my mother. If you give these women money, they would spend it on their kids.

“When my mother was alive, I didn't know I was going to loose her so soon. This is one thing I would have loved to do for my mum who was a widow for 10 years. It was lovely and fulfilling to see this happen,” the United Nations ambassador emotionally ended her statement.
