Nollywood actress and mother of four, Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde, plans to feature award-winning, Senegalese-born star Akon as a special guest in her new album. Omotola, popularly known as Omosexy, has not done any major work in music since her first album titled 'Gba' in 2006.

She has been kept off music by her busy schedule in the movies and most recently, her reality show, 'The Real Omosexy'.

In preparation for her forthcoming album, Omotola disclosed she has "enlisted help from the producers of Akon's Konvict Music."

"I am currently working with Grammy award-winning producer Kendrick Dean and Verse Simmonds from Konvict Music and we are working towards featuring a special guest," she told NET.

The actress has been branded the sexiest African woman and even bagged awards for it. She was mentioned in the lyrics of D'Banj's award-winning hit Oliver Twist. She said, "it's very flattering and it's nice to be recognised and I wish him all the best."
