Without a doubt, Sola Sobowale is a huge movie star made popular by some of her movie roles.
Nollywood actress, Sola Sobowale has positioned herself as one of the fantastic actresses in Nollywood with defining characters in the last two decades.
Sobowale’s choices in roles have been stellar and this has endeared her to millions of fans across the world.
Sola Sobowale’s acting career has been characterised by several huge roles that have been her most famous.
Here are the three defining characters in Sola Sobowale’s acting career which is over three decades.
Sola Sobowale first struck a chord in the minds of her fans when she landed a role in Wale Adenuga’s hit TV series ‘SuperStory: Oh Father, Oh Daughter’. She played the role of Toyin, a manipulative and calculative woman, who wrecked the home of Suara. Her interpretation of the role got Sobowale recognition all over the country. She went on to feature in some Yoruba films but none matched the fame Toyin Tomato gave her. Sobowale was widely referred to as Toyin Tomato for a very long time. The 2001 production, which became an instant hit, was the first in a series of Wale Adenuga’s TV shows.
Over a decade after playing the role of Toyin Tomato, Sola Sobowale returned to the scene. She had relocated to the United Kingdom to raise her daughters but returned to start getting movie roles. She was unmistakable by her fans when she appeared in ‘The Wedding Party’ where she played the role of Mrs. Tinuade Coker. Sobowale aptly interpreted the role of a Yoruba bride’s mum. Married to Bamidele Coker played by Alibaba, Sobowale grabbed headlines again with her brilliant interpretation of the mother of the bride trying to outshine the groom’s mother. She plays the Adesua Etomi-Wellington’s mother in the film that went on to become the highest-grossing Nollywood film.
Sola Sobowale currently holds the title of the ‘King Of Boys’ after taking up the lead role in Kemi Adetiba’s film, ‘King Of Boys’. The dazzling actress plays the role of Alhaja Eniola Salami, a mean, cold and brutal character. Aside from grabbing headlines again, she has been nominated for several wards and won many for the interpretation of her role as Eniola Salami. Again, she worked with Adesua Etomi-Wellington on the film, which registered itself as one of the record-breakers in Nollywood.
