Chude Jideonwo spoke with veteran Nollywood actress and producer Sola Sobowale. During the interview, Sola Sobowale discussed the reasons behind her decision to move to London and the lifestyle she led there for many years. She also discussed the enormous sum of money she earned as an actress in Nigeria prior to her move. She claimed she left Nigeria so she could send her kids to a reputable school overseas.

Before moving to England from Nigeria, Sola Sobowale revealed that she had been residing in Enugu while filming the movie “Christ in Me.” When she began receiving more movie roles in Enugu as a result of her work on that film, she made the decision to make Enugu her base. As of the year 2000, Sola claimed she might work one week at a single filming location and make N800,000. She claimed she was hopping between filming locations and earning a lot of money, but she abandoned it all to work in England for £7.50 an hour.

Because she thinks there is dignity in labor, Sola Sobowale noted that she can perform any type of work. As a result, she has swept, cooked, dusted, and performed other cleaning tasks in England, which has allowed her to put food on the table and a roof over her head. When she is on the train or bus, she usually wears her uniform with the name of the company she works for written on it, and when Nigerians see her, they would say, “This can’t be Sola Sobowale,” she said. She said she would tell them that she is actually the one and they would ask her what she is doing in London. She added that she would ask them the same thing in return. In England, Sola Sobowale claimed to have gained many friends, for which she is grateful and content, but all of that is now in the past.
