Sola Sobowale DEBUNKS drug trafficking, d3ath rumours

Nollywood veteran, Sola Sobowale, has thrown light on the rumour surrounding her alleged arrest for drug trafficking in Saudi Arabia.

The 58-year-old thespian recalled that when she left Nigeria for the United Kingdom, lots of negative things were said about her, including reports that she was k!lled in the Gulf nation.

Sobowale stated these in a live chat on the ‘Teju Baby Face Show’.

“God has compensated me because there were so many things written about me when I left the shores of Nigeria – so many negative things,” Sobowale said.

She, however, said the negative reports did not bother her, saying, “So far I’m at peace with God, then I’m good.

“Remember, when I was in the UK doing my thing, they wrote a lot of things in Nigerian newspapers – from grace to grass.”

She equally recalled how her name was dragged in the mud as reports had it that she was selling food in a London restaurant owned by her elder sister, Kike Oyelami.

“So, I go there anytime I’m off work. I make eba, pound yam and help my sister to serve food. They saw me. They wrote ‘Sola Sobowale now sells eba,” she chuckled.

The Ondo State-born veteran, noted for her versatility in movie roles, added that some people said she was working as a cleaner in a restaurant in London.

She narrated that she wasn’t displeased with those comments even as she formerly owned a restaurant in Nigeria – Sola’s Kitchen, before finally taking a career in acting.

However, the worst lie, according to the thespian, was when some publications said she had been killed in Saudi Arabia for drug trafficking.

She said sarcastically, “They killed me in Saudi Arabia that I carried cocaine. They got me arrested and there, they amputated my leg, my hand, and I said to them that I’m a star in Nigeria. And because of that, I said they should kill me and they did.”

The actress who starred in the Kemi Adetiba-directed movie, ‘King of Boys,’ noted that when she arrived in Nigeria, she debunked the story, adding that she never knew where Saudi Arabia lies on the map.
