March 20, 2016 – How Jide Kosoko Brought Daughter Sola Into Limelight

Nollywood actress Sola Kosoko is one of veteran actor Jide Kosoko’s daughters in the same industry with her father.

In a recent chat with Daily Post, the proud mother of one revealed that her father is the secret of her thriving acting career.

In her words:

“I was actually introduced into the industry by my father, Prince Jide Kosoko. Initially, I didn’t like it. As at that time, I was awaiting admission into the University.

I was like, ‘let me finish schooling, I can always come back to acting because education first’. But he told me that I could always do it with schooling.

I heeded his advice. To God be the glory today, I am a graduate and I have attained this level in my career. My father convinced me before I joined. He asked me to star in a movie titled, ‘Omo Olorire’ and that was in 2001. I had done some before then.

I was in ‘Ola Abata’ in 1999. In 2000, he asked me to feature again and I was like why, you are turning me to an actor just like that. I refused but after shooting that movie, I got into the limelight,”.

    What your father did was best for you. Education first my foot! I had known what I know now, I would have gone straight into business after my secondary school. One thing we would not like to admit is that while university education exposes you, it tends to confine you to that certificate it awards you and you are likely to be lost or frustrated if you do not get that job at last.

    But by making money first, you can always go back and get your degree, and have a big edge over the student that had gone straight into school.

    Education first, that’s true. I have seen a stack illitrate employ graduates in her company and she took the bold step and she’s one today. So its which ever comes first.

    Is good hand work first not education. You can get any certificate at any time in life. After all after graduation, you can’t get any employment in this our country.
