Kemi Adetiba drives you hard to get the best out of you – Sola Sobowale
Sola Sobowale says Kemi Adetiba drives every member of cat hard to get the best out of them while on the set of ‘King Of Boys.’
“Kemi is a killer, I almost died. Kemi is a slave driver but thank God. She would say to me do you want to look bad on that screen at the end of the day, everything I am doing is for you to look and we thank God for the result but the one that baffles me is when she commends a scene and says that was nice, that was beautiful but says we should have another take and before you know it, we would have had 10 or 15 takes.
“I remember a particular scene we were shooting and I was already in action and I heard a distance voice faintly saying get aunty S a chair, get her a bottle of water, I asked what was going on and Kemi said aunty S, you are fainting and I sat down and didn’t know I was shaking vigorously. That is the kind of director Kemi is, the type who sees the work and sees the person, other locations, maybe I would have been dead by now,” She said.
