Ever since the premiere of the movie “King of Boys”, accolades have been pouring in for Nigerian indigenous rapper, Reminisce for his role in the movie.
The rapper who played the role of “Makanaki” shared the first-hand acting experience with Hip Tv during a recent interview. The rapper stated that the acting prowess of Sola Sobowale left him intimidated during the first day on set.
“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”.
The LRR boss stated it took lots of convincing and 8 long months to finally accept the role.
“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”, he said.
