Sola Kosoko is a Nigerian actress and director. She is also known as Sola Kosoko Abina, she has been working in the film industry since 1999 and was consolidated by her dexterity in the role she played in the movie “Omo Olorire”. In an interview, Sola announced that her father’s influence helped her to progress remarkably as an actress and that she combined this with her agility that earned her recognition far from popularity.
Her father influenced her career choice.
Her childhood ambition was to become a lawyer or a television presenter. Her first appearance can be compared to an accessory appearance. In 1987, She got her first role in a celluloid movie and then went back to school. Immediately after graduating from high school, She started appearing more in film. Some of Dad’s colleagues, like Baba Suwe, came to tell her to come and act out three scenes and that was it.
Her first big movie was Ola Abata in 1999. With this movie, her dad became more convinced that she should take acting seriously. But she felt reluctant because she was looking for university admission. In 2000, her dad wrote another movie and said that she wouldn’t just do two or three scenes, but she would be the main character in the movie. She reluctantly obeyed. She watched the movie and was not very happy with herself. She felt too small and not pretty enough and decided to stop playing games and concentrate on her studies.
In 2001, she had one more opportunity to star in a movie as the main character, she reluctantly accepted it again, but this time when she watched the movie she was happy with what she saw on the screen. She looked more mature, prettier and did well. And it was the movie that put her in the spotlight. With that, she started to receive more invitations from other producers.
