God Ordained Me To Be An Actress – Sola Sobowale

Published

on

Veteran Yoruba actress, Sola Sobowale has said God ordained her to be an actress. In an interview with Pulse on Thursday, Sola Sobowale took out time to explain her role in the recently released movie ‘King of Boys’, which was directed by Kemi Adetiba.

Speaking on the movie, Sola who played the main character referred to Kemi Adetiba as someone who brings the best out of you.

“Kemi is a killer, I almost died. Kemi is a slave driver but thank God. She would say to me: ‘Do you want to look bad on that screen at the end of the day? We thank God for the result. However, what baffles me is when she commends a scene and says ‘that was nice, that was beautiful’, but says we should have another take and before you know it, we would have had 10 or 15 takes.

“I remember a particular scene we were shooting and I was already in action and I heard a distant voice saying ‘Get Aunty S a chair; get her a bottle of water’. I asked what was going on and Kemi said ‘Aunty S, you are fainting’. I sat down and didn’t know I was shaking vigorously. That is the kind of director Kemi is — the type who sees the work and sees the person. Other locations, maybe I would have been dead by now.

“I got the King of Boys script after a lunch with Kemi Adetiba. After The Wedding Party, I got a call from Kemi Adetiba — she calls me Aunty S. She said ‘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.”

Speaking on her acting career, she said: “This is what God has ordained me to do”.

“I told her I have 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 have given me a chance to do this because this is all I 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 a she has believed in me, I won’t let her down and God will do wonders and God did it. It’s teamwork but I have to thank Kemi Adetiba for giving me the chance and opportunity” . She added.

Water tank driver accuses Duncan Mighty of assaulting him in Rivers

Self-acclaimed Port Harcourt First Son, Duncan Mighty is currently trending on social media for the wrong reasons.

A water tank driver, Okabam John has accused singer, Duncan Mighty of assaulting him in Port Harcourt, Rivers state.

It was gathered that the incident reportedly happened on Saturday, November 21, 2020 at about 9:40am when the driver was on duty.

Narrating his ordeal to some Civil Rights Activists on Tuesday November 24, after he was allegedly discharged from the hospital, John, a native of Elele Town in Ikwerre Local Government Area of the state and an employee of Julius Berger Nigeria Limited, claimed that the musician struck him on the head with a traditional staff made of elephant tusk.

According to the driver, while on duty a private car was parked close to his water filling spot. He tried notifying the driver who refused to wind down. He reportedly bent his head to talk to the driver only to discover it was Duncan Mighty.

John said that before he could speak, the singer allegedly struck his head using a traditional staff. He said the second strike was blocked with his hand. He claimed that he could not see when the singer drove off as his eyes were covered with blood.

Confirming the incident on Tuesday, one Ndubueze Obodowhuo, accused Duncan Mighty of using his VIP status to intimidate his people. He also shared a ‘medical report’ stating that John was treated for “shoulder dislocation and scalp laceration.”

Mr John is now calling on his employer, the management of Julius Berger, Security Agencies and Human Rights Organisations to help him get justice. His post below:

“This is Mr. OKABAM JOHN a native of Elele town in Ikwerre LGA of Rivers State, he’s currently employed by JULIUS BERGER NIG.PLC in Port Harcourt and his service engagement is within Judges quarters elelenwo-street, GRA Port Harcourt.

“According to Mr. OKABAM JOHN a Water-tank driver with Julius Berger, Tanker number – B8751, On Saturday 21st of November 2020 at about 9:40am while he was on duty. A private car was parked close to his water filling spot, he tried notifying the driver who refused to wine down, he bent his head to talk with the driver surprisingly, it was Duncan mighty.

“Before he could explain, his head was struck by Duncan mighty using a traditional staff(Elephant tusk), the second strike was blocked with his hand. He(Okabam John) didn’t see how the artist drove off because, blood covered his eyes at that moment.

“Mr. Okabam John narrated this incident after being discharged from the hospital. Duncan doesn’t show up when he’s publicly needed, rather he uses his VIP influence to undo his people. Celebrities should be celebrated by their positivity, their influence shouldn’t pose danger to the society rather it should serve as liberation to the people.

“Mr. OKABAM JOHN is calling on the management of Julius Berger, Security Agents and Human Rights Organisations for justice to be done in his case, to avoid a re-occurance.”
