Delectable actress, Jumoke Odetola, is a Nollywood screen diva, who was nominated for the forthcoming African Magic Viewers Choice Awards, AMVCAs.
Jumoke, who scooped the ‘Next Rated Award’ at the 2015 edition of the annual TUSH Awards, is known for her characteristic role in English and Yoruba speaking movies.
With Nollywood flicks such as ‘Victims’, ‘Freezing Point’, ‘Binta Ofege’, ‘Family Ties’ among several others to her name, in a recent chat, she bared her mind on certain industry issues notably the current trend on rivalry.
According to her, envy, jealousy and rivalry are psychological boosts for the creative industry to be at its best, “Under Psychology and Cognitive Behavioural Therapies, we have positive and negative emotions. Envy, jealousy and rivalry could either be positive or negative. Envy can be beneficial when it is healthy, as it enables you to become aware of what you want. It can provoke aspirations, motivation and goal setting.
‘‘For example, the world’s greatest footballers, Messi and C. Ronaldo may not have pushed themselves to their best limits if the rivalry was not there. The same applies with two of the best faces in Nollywood, Omotola and Genevieve. I tagged their rivalries as healthy because they have nurtured it professionally thereby achieving the greatest heights any actress would dream of.”
