32 Year Old Temitope Solaja Hails from Ogun state, South Western Nigeria

Temitope Basira Solaja was born on February 14th, 1992, and she is an indigene of Sagamu in Ogun State, Southwest region of Nigeria. She is of the Yoruba tribe of the country, and she spent much of her early years in the region.

How Temitope Solaja Began her 17 Year-Old Acting Career

Temitope happens to be among the many actresses whose present career was a passion nursed since their early years. The Yoruba actress would recall herself mimicking most of her favorite actresses, and even while growing up, she hoped to become a movie star someday.

Her dreams came to fruition when in her first year at the Univesity, she was introduced to a well-applauded Yoruba movie actor, producer, and MC, Afeez Eniola, who was at the University to shoot his movie, “Bamitale.” Bamitale became the stepping stone Solaja needed to join the Nigerian movie industry. However, she credits “Okpolo,” another Yoruba movie, for bringing her to the limelight. The 2009 movie, which also starred other Yoruba actors like Mercy Aigbe, and Funmi Emmanuel Muyideen Oladapo, was produced by Sola Adetunde.

Though largely considered a Yoruba actress, Tope has also appeared in a couple of English-speaking movies. One such movie is the 2015 movie Bella Bella which was written and produced by Tayo Sobola and featured other stars like Yemi Blaq, Bukola Ajayi, and Biodun Okeowo, among a host of others.

In June 2022, a phone conversation between the Stargirl and Adebanke Adeyeye, better known as Debankee, on their relationship with male colleagues Bolanle Ninalowo and Itele D Icon was leaked online by controversial blogger, Gistlovers.
