On the 23rd of this month, The Wedding Party movie was announced to hold the biggest opening week in history of Nollywood as it raked in N66million.
Sola Sobowale, who played the role of Tinuade Coker, brought life to the character making her the love of her audience.
In a post on her Instagram page yesterday, the veteran actress shared how she became a part of the movie and how director, Kemi Adetiba was also instrumental to it.
Kemi, Oh Kemi, so much to say but where do I start? Most people don’t know the story leading up to this moment right here. But I’ll share.
I first heard of the #weddingpartymovie in early April but for some reason, I overlooked it. My daughter, who manages me, called me from the UK and filled me in on what the movie was about but I was caught between 2 jobs.
With much persuasion, my other daughters, instructing me not to miss the audition. Eventually, I managed to make the audition on the last day – with my daughter, @themiimiisworld, on my tail; calling me every 5 minutes
To tell you how last minute it was, I had forgotten my reading glasses so when it came to the lines, I could only see certain words. But in true Sola fashion, I decided to freestyle.
During the audition, I just remember seeing a lady, full of excitement, joy and eagerness. It was like she couldn’t wait for the auditions to be over. She had already made her mind up at that spot, making me the Tinuade Coker that you all love today. That lady was the beautiful @kemiadetiba.
Thank you so much for believing in me and being stern in your decision. I love you now and forever.
