Why I abandoned my career for London – Sola Sobowale
Nollywood actress, Sola Sobowale has explained why she abandoned her blooming career for menial jobs in London.
The King of Boys gave a recount of events in an interview with Chude Jideonwo.
“I left the shores of Nigeria for a purpose. Children are not asked to be born, the moment you decide that you want to have children, then you must be ready to take full responsibility for those children.
“They’re beautiful creatures, you don’t bring them to this world to suffer, you don’t. You don’t bring them to this world for anybody to take care of them, you brought them, then stay with them and do the work.
“My father, a retired principal, my mother, retired headmistress, may their souls Rest In Peace. I know what they did for me and my siblings and I know what is called education, that is the only legacy you can give your children.
“I got married to an HR man, so when they want to give employment, I know what it’s like. I know the university, I know how they select people from abroad in premier universities, up to state before going to private.
“And I looked and said ehen! So I said my children they either go to the University of Ibadan, Ife, or Unilag. But unfortunately, today strike, Tomorrow strike, a course of 3 years they will end up doing 6 years and I said no if I can be paying this much for primary and secondary, I’m not going to throw that at a university, so let my children leave Nigeria.
“That was why I moved my children out of Nigeria to London.”
