VENO NEWS: “I swept, cooked, washed, mopped, cleaned offices in United Kingdom --- Ace Actress, Sola Sobowale Declares
Date: 30-07-22




Sola Sobowale, the ace actress, has recalled how she left Nigeria to do menial jobs in order to cater to her children who were schooling in the United Kingdom.

Speaking in the latest episode of #WithChude, the film star said she left the fame and stardom to give her children the motherly love they so “richly desire” while they were studying in UK varsities.

Sobowale also recounted how she left her mouthwatering acting job, which was fetching her over N5 million within months — during the early 2000s — for menial jobs in England.

She said while in the UK, she worked multiple “7.5 pounds per hour” jobs like cleaning, cooking, and mopping office floors to make ends meet.

“I went back to England and noticed the kids lack motherly touch. Then I moved to England and forget stardom,” she told Chude Jideonwo, the media personality.

“Now, all of them are working and now they appreciate me for my sacrifice and ask me to go back to what I know how to do best so that’s why I’m back in Nigeria.

“I was practically living in Enugu because I shot a movie, ‘Christ In Me’, after the movie the fame came. So I was given another job, to film one and come back, but eventually, I got over 10 movies so I was stationed at Enugu. And in one location I spent one week. In that one week, I was on N800,000 and that was in the year 2000. “Now, all of them are working and now they appreciate me for my sacrifice and ask me to go back to what I know how to do best so that’s why I’m back in Nigeria.

So like that, when I’m coming back to Lagos, I had over N5 million within how many months, the money was blowing.

“So I left that for 7 pounds per hour jobs in England. Then before I could make 1000 pounds I have to work extra hard. There is nothing this woman cannot do because I know what is called dignity in labour. I will sweep anywhere so far it will put food on my table, cloth on my children, and shelter on my head.

“I swept, cooked, washed, mopped, cleaned offices. Yes, I did all those. The other thing is I wasn’t sleeping. On the train or bus, I make sure I wear my uniform with the name of the company like that.

We love her honesty ❤️ 💕
