While a number of her colleagues are hungry for meaty career leaps, Omotola has a plentiful plate this year, from blockbuster movies to high brow concerts to tongue lashes, but highly passionate about entertainment, the mother of four joggling a career in music and acting at the same time seems unstoppable. Her trip to the United States is more than could be told by pictures.

She paved the way for other African stars when she paid an official visit to the Atlanta Chapter of the Grammy Office; the first by any African or Nollywood star and was received by the chapter president Ms. Michele Caplinge. Highly impressed with her personality, the meeting ended with Ms. Michele Caplinge saying she is looking forward to having Omotola back.

Talking of huge career leaps, Omotola recently signed a management deal with Bishop Entertainment Consult (BEC) in America and the partnership has opened up new frontiers and given Omosexy many first(s) in the industry.

Toing the path of well known celebrity philanthropists Omotola visited the 2Pac Foundation where she shared her vision to have Omotola Youth Empowerment Programme (OYEP), her NGO collaborate with 2Pac Center for Arts and Learning in helping to get kids off the street and making their life count in Nigeria. She met director of 2Pac Community Outreach, Dr. Carlos Coleman and talk is ongoing on how to perfect the collaborations.

Loved home and abroad, the beautiful actress was hosted in Atlanta by a waiting crowd of over a thousand people for meet and greet / Birthday Bash at the Valley Nite Club in Atlanta. An official birthday cake made by Atlanta celerity cake maker who makes cake for such celeb as Gucci Mane, Luda, Young Geezy etc was presented to OmoSexy by Samtex Entertainment CEO Mr. Dele Daniel & Mr. Samson CEO Valley Nite Club.

Omo T appeared on CBS owned V103FM Frank & Wanda Morning show in Atlanta Georgia and on IK tunes Radio Show produced by Castle Hill Recording Studio in New York City.

Omotola’s interview broke the record as the most listened to interview on Castle Hill. As at the last count close to 600,000 people had listed to or downloaded the interview. This interview drove the sales of OmoSexy music CD “Me, Myself & Eyes” to over 5000 copies.

This interview happened shortly after Omo T walked the official 53rd Grammy Awards Red Carpet, the first African recording artiste to do so. Femi Kuti was the first African to be nominated for a Grammy but he did not walk the red carpet. Omotola’s presence on the Grammy red carpet is owed to her first song that was released to the American market ‘Stop the War’, her ambassadorial role in the UN as well as her new Digital Distribution deal with Bungalo/Universal Records.

Invited to as one of the Celebrities to headline the 2Pac @40 Birthday Concert also to be attended by Afeni Shakur, Mike Epps, Snoop, Outlawz, Dr. Dre, Dog Pound family and others on June 16, 2011, in Atlanta, Omotola’s career is set to take a bigger swing in 2011.
