Reminisce Reveals Why He Almost Rejected “King Of Boys” Role
Nigerian rapper, Reminisce, has revealed how he almost rejected his role as ‘Makanaki’ in the blockbuster film, “King of Boys” after he saw Sola Sobowale acting her role in one of the scenes.
In a recent chat with Hip TV, the indigenous rapper disclosed that it took eight months before Kemi Adetiba was able to convince him to feature in the movie.
He said he was unsure of his ability to pull through his role in the film after he saw the veteran actress in her full element on set, while playing the role of Eniola Salami.
His words: “So, yeah, I took up the challenge and my first day on set, I saw aunty Sola Sobowale in her full element. It was my birthday and Olamide was waiting for me at a night club but I had to shoot some scenes.”
“So, I saw her in her full element and I told Kemi I can’t do this. She asked why I said look at this woman na, I can’t do this. This woman is in another world, I don’t want to mess up, I can’t do this. But Kemi convinced me and said she believed I can do it and I went back home and returned to give my best like you all saw in the movie”.
“I wasn’t so sure I could do it because I had so much going on at that time but Kemi Adetiba was able to convince me and this took about eight months. Though there were a lot of other names flying around but she said no, that she wanted Reminisce to do this.”
