It is the wish of every entertainer to be appreciated for their craft. It is an indication that their labours have not gone unnoticed, and that they have the respect of their peers, and the general public.
In light of the foregone, one can imagine how excited fast-rising actress, Jumoke Odetola, felt when she bagged the All Youths Tush Awards (2015) for Next Rated Movie Act on Sunday, December 6, 2015, at the Lamboghiny Event Centre, Lekki, Lagos. She beat other promising actresses like Kiki Omeili, Ivie Okujaye, Kehinde Bakole, and Moyo Lawal to clinch the top prize.
However, for many who have been following the career of the beautiful and unassuming role-interpreter, the award didn’t come as a surprise. Jumoke has been doing well for herself, and she has been spotlighted and profiled by many news media lately.
Her role in Mercy Aigbe’s latest movie, ‘Victims’ is still a vibrant topic of discussion, as a lot of people who watched the film had positive reviews for her.
Determined, focused and prolific with an irresistible combination of beauty and brains, Jumoke has also proved her mettle in movies such as ‘Heroes and Zeros,’ ‘Ebi Tawaani,’ ‘Injustice,’ ‘Oju Apa,’ ‘Moremi,’ among others.
She has starred in television productions like ‘Kilanta,’ ‘Tinsel,’ ‘Family Ties,’ ‘Super Story,’ ‘Papa Ajasco,’ and several others.
It is without a doubt that 2016 would be a better and bigger year for Jumoke. Many pundits and industry observers have already named her as one of the promising stars to watch out for next year.
