Sola Sobowale played the main character, Eniola Salami, in the movie, ‘King of Boys’ and as expected, she delivered!
From being the powerful godfather of political aspirants who had the whole world in her hands to being at the mercy of her subjects and regaining power, ruling from outside her country, Sola Sobowale’s role in the movie has gathered applause from thousands of people who have seen the movie.
And that role proved she was “The King of Boys!”
In a chat with Pulse.ng, the actress, who has been in the movie industry for decades shared how she got the role and how grateful she is to Kemi Adetiba, the producer and director of the movie for believing in her skills.
After the wedding party, I got a call from Kemi Adetiba. She said, ‘Aunty S, where are you?’ and I told her I was home. She asked me to join her for lunch somewhere in Victoria Island and I joined her because I love food and I love her personality.
After eating, she brought out a script out and gave it to me. I said ‘what is this’ and she said it is the script for her new movie called, King of Boys. I asked her if she knew what she was doing after flipping the script and how much it will cost and she said God will do it.
Then I asked again, ‘what are you giving me to do?’ and she said, ‘The King.’ I laughed and asked her if she believed so much in me to deliver the role and she said yes. I told her she will be gambling with her life, her saving, career and everything for me and she said yes.
I looked at her, I said, ‘who are you?’
I said I’ve been around for a while. From my days in NTA, Village Headmaster, Mirror in the Sun, Suara and several other productions but she wasn’t moved, she said the role was for me and I looked at her and said, Kemi after all these year, you are giving me a chance to do this because this is what I love to do, this is what I know how to do best, this is what God has ordained me to do and you Kemi are the one giving me this, you are giving me opportunity to shine, for the whole wide world to know this is what Sola knows how to do best.
And I promised her that as she has believed in me, I won’t let her down and God will do wonders and God did it. Its team work but I have to thank Kemi Adetiba for giving me the chance and opportunity.
