Sola Sobowale, the Super Story star, is still alive and well. She is eagerly awaiting the start of production on her debut Bollywood film.
Recently, Nollywood actress Sola Sobowale, also known as Toyin Tomato, has been rumored to be dead. It was said that she was allegedly arrested and beheaded in Saudi Arabia for drug-related offenses.
Sola Sobowale was born in Ondo State on December 26, 1965, to her parents Joseph and Esther Olagookun.
Her father was a retired principal, and her mother had previously served as a headmistress.
She was enrolled at the University of Ibadan to study Music after completing her primary and secondary studies. Her love of acting led her to pursue a degree in Theatre Arts.

Sola’s parents initially opposed her acting, but Oyelana persuaded them that it was a respectable vocation and not a path to deviance. Sola’s parents, thankfully, gave their approval.
