Sola Kosoko Career

Speaking to Showtime Celebrity, she had this to say about what influenced your choice of career.

To be honest, my dad influenced my choice of career. My ambition as a child was to become a lawyer or a broadcaster. My first appearance could be likened to a prop-like appearance. In 1987, I got my first role in a celluloid film after which I went back to school. Immediately after my secondary school education, I started appearing more in films. Some of daddy’s colleagues like Baba Suwe would come around and would tell me to come and act about three scenes and that was it. My first major film was Ola Abata in 1999 because I was cast for the role Alaja Wosilat. With that movie, my dad became more convinced that I should take acting seriously. But I wasn’t keen about it because I was seeking admission into the University. In the year 2000, my dad scripted another movie and he said I would not just take two or three scenes, but would be the main character in the film. I obliged reluctantly. I watched the film and I was not too happy with myself . I felt like I was too small and not beautiful enough and I decided to quit acting and concentrate on my academics. In the year 2001, I had another opportunity to act in a film as the main character again, I accepted reluctantly yet again but this time when I watched the movie, I was happy with what I saw on the screen. I was looking more matured, beautiful and I performed well. And that was the movie that shot me into limelight. With this, I started getting more invitations from other producers.
