Soólè: How I was going back and forth from meet and greet to the hospital – Adunni Ade narrates [VIDEO]
Award-winning Nollywood actress, Adunni Ade has narrated how she was going back and forth from meet and greet in cinemas to the hospital for IV.
The light-skinned thespian opened up on the many difficulties she faced while taking Soóle the movie, to cinemas.
Adunni Ade revealed she was so ill, she had to go back and forth from meet and greet in the cinemas, and then return to the hospital for drips, despite her doctor warning her against leaving.
On the latest episode of Lilian Afegbai‘s Youtube show, Lilian’s Couch, Adunni Ade revealed she put a lot of work and thought into the movie Soólè, which is also on Netflix. She said in part:
“Now filming, shooting a movie, it can be stressful but then actually having that project in cinemas, that is something totally different.
Man, if you’re not sound, if you’re not mentally stable, you can lose it. So many people didn’t know this.
In fact, I think maybe one or two people knew, but I was ill, I was sick, I had lost so much weight. I was doing meet and greet back and forth [between hospital and cinema] . I would leave the hospital on admission, receive IVs, I have very bad veins, my leg being poked, popped up on hospital beds taking IVs and doctors telling me “ma’am you can’t leave”. I’m like no, I have money to be made. He’d be like “no, you need your life”. I said I understand, but let me make this money so I can come and pay this hospital bill. And I would take IVs, I would leave. Go straight to the cinema, stand there, smile with people, meet a lot of amazing people.
And I have to be honest with you, a lot of people I actually met there actually came there to watch Soole. But then you have a few people who will tell you “I don’t watch Nigerian movies”, and that makes me cringe. I mean, it’s okay, you have your own options or what you identify with, but you don’t have to – hmm, it was just an experience. I don’t know. It was crazy.
People appreciating Soole, it means the world to me, so I can only push further. That’s all I want to do. Now it’s what’s the next thing..”
