Sola Sobowale, the ace actress, says the 2018 blockbuster ‘King of Boys’ remains the biggest movie she has featured in.
The movie star spoke about her role in the movie during the latest episode of #WithChude hosted by Chude Jideonwo, the media personality.
In the film, Sobowale acted as Eniola Salami, the businesswoman and villain whose insatiable appetite for power drives her into politics.
The actress described ‘King of Boys’ as an opportunity for her to showcase her potential.
“I have never done anything as big as that. You know you can do something and that opportunity never came, and out of nowhere someone somewhere gave you the opportunity,” she said.
“Not only that someone met me and said, but she also said she wrote it for me. I was like, ‘so you believe in me?’, because when I met the one and only Kemi Adetiba and she said, ‘this is what you are going to do’. I looked at her, and my first question to her was, ‘Are you a gambler?’ because what she brought to me was huge, massive.
“This is a woman you haven’t met before asides from meeting her during The Wedding Party. ‘You have this much belief in me?’ and I said, ‘Okay, give me the baton and let’s run’.”
Sobowale said she was nervous throughout the movie production.
“For me not to disappoint her, throughout I wasn’t myself until the movie came out and I saw the review and the way people now embraced it. That was when I said, ‘All glory be to the father,’” she added.
The actress also recounted how she left stardom to do menial jobs in England for the sake of her children.
