Sola Kosoko, the daughter of  veteran Nollywood actor, Prince Jide Kosoko started her acting career as a kid actor when she featured in a movie titled, Omo Orukan, but never knew she would become this popular.
She was off and on the screen until her father, Jide Kosoko, persuaded her otherwise. She listened to him and took the plunge that has ended well for her.

Today, the Olabisi Onabanjo University graduate of Sociology has no regret choosing acting as a career.
While narrating how her father lured her into Nollywood, she said “My advice is always that if you want to be great in life, take one step after the other. There is no shortcut to success. In my own case, I would say I’m lucky because my father had already created the platform for me. He was even the one that lured me into acting. And ever since then, I have been working so hard to attain this status that I am. So, the up and coming actresses should remain focused, they should not give room to any distraction. And of course, prayer is the key, they should be very prayerful. Surely, the sky is their limit.” She concluded.
