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,”.
