Sola Sobowale has made a name for herself as our onscreen Yoruba mother, and we love her for that.
Although Sola Sobowale broke into mainstream Nollywood .ing mostly villains, Nigerians fell in love with her regardless. Who can forget how her flawless portrayal of Toyin Tomato in Superstory and the husband-snatching “Madam” in Lepa Shandy?
While those characters proved that she is undoubtedly one of the best actresses in Nollywood, it was her role as the dramatic Tinuade Coker in The Wedding Party franchise that made us love her the more. Her iconic wedding entrance scene has now become a meme and a lesson on how to pepper your haters at an owambe.
Granted that she still looks stunning at 51, we can only imagine how stunning she looked in her younger days. If you need a reason to love her even more, here are a few throwback pictures you probably haven’t seen of the gorgeous Sola Sobowale.
