Sola Sobowale Praises Kemi Adetiba For Bringing Out The Best In Her
Nollywood Queen of drama Sola Sobowale has acknowledged the woman behind her superstar status in the entertainment industry.
In a chat with Chude Jideonwo yesterday, Sobowale spoke about her role in Kemi Adetiba’s top rated King of Boys movie.
Here is what the actress said about the producer who contributed to her success.
“There’s something about Kemi Adetiba. Kemi Adetiba will tell you who Sola Sobowale is. I don’t even know myself. Kemi knows me more than I know myself.”
“Kemi Adetiba brought me out. I will say it anywhere. I don’t mind if it sounds like a broken record. I will echo it. I will sing it. I will shout it. She brought me out.”
“I don’t watch myself but I had to watch myself during King of Boys”.
Despite joining Nollywood in 1992, Sobowale became popular in 2001 when she played the role of “Toyin Tomato” in Wale Adenuga’s Super Story.
However, the actress experienced renewed fame in Kemi Adetiba’s Wedding Party, released in 2016.
But in 2018, Adetiba’s King of Boys shot the actress to stardom due to her alpha female role and the strong personality she exuded in the movie.
Speaking of her role in the movie, the actress added, “You know you can do something but that opportunity never came.”
