I am not there alone, I have my dad, Abbey Lanre, Fathia Balogun and Toyosi Adesanya. We just finished writing our last papers a few weeks ago. And we are yet to do our practical in stage performance. It was meant to be 6 months but this is our 9 months due to the unnecessary strike.”

Addressing the issue of her marriage to Mr. Abina, Sola revealed what has kept her marriage going over the years through the help of her father, Jide Kosoko.
Sola Kosoko said: “It is all for God. It takes only the grace of God to keep moving in that journey. I don’t bite more than I can chew. More so, my father’s advice has kept my marriage going because he told me then before I got married to be careful and watchful about any man that I want to marry, because after your marriage, there is nothing like coming back home as a divorcee. That alone keeps my marriage.”
