The first movie I saw Omoni Oboli in was The Figurine, which was produced and directed by Kunle Afolayan and the first thought that greeted my heart was, ”This woman is pretty!”
Her eyes are so cute and I loved the way she talked.
Then I watched Fifty; I absolutely fell in love with her anew, and even followed her on Instagram. Apart from her physical attractiveness, I love her versatility. She inspires me and challenges me in many ways. She has become one of the most loved actresses in Nollywood and she deserves it.
Come with me, let me show you who this woman crush is.
