Nollywood super star actress, Omotola Jalade Ekeinde is currently being called out by fans on social media for an interview she granted last year with a news site where she revealed that her husband, Captain Matthew Ekeinde, does the family shopping at the local market.
This action she said was due to her status in the Nigerian entertainment. She further stressed that being a household name in Nigeria would absolutely make shopping difficult for her.

Let me tell you something more, my husband is actually the one who goes to the market. I don’t go to the market because I can’t. Because of my status, I can’t. But my husband didn’t say you know traditionally, a man is not suppposed to go to the market, I’m not gonna go, no. My husband actually goes to the market. In my earlier career, I used to go with him but I‘ll stay in the car, because our cars are tainted, so I’ll stay in the car. But then, one time we went to Tejuosho and someone found out I was in the car, it became a major security risk. So, he said don’t ever go with me again. He goes and he has fun, and he comes back home and I do the cooking, so you see, we strengthen each other.”
Somehow somewhere, the interview surfaced on social media today and Nigerians are reacting to the actress statement. If people had bothered to read the interview they would see that Omotola due to her status as a celebrity had an experience at the market that threatened her security, her husband was so concerned about it, he decided he would go to the market instead of her.
