Nollywood actress Sotayo Sobola popularly called Sotayogaga, recently announced her conferment with the title of “Saraunia”, which means queen mother of the Uke Kingdom in Nasarawa state.
The actress took to her Instagram page to share videos from the event as she wrote: So today I officially become the Queen Mother of Uke Kingdom Nasarawa.
Many of her fans and colleagues stormed her comment session with congratulatory messages. The official photos of the event have emerged online.
News recalls that the actress in a recent interview with the Punch Newspaper revealed why she had a secret wedding after dating for seven years.
In her words,: “I am married. My husband is not in the movie industry. I have been married for a while. I had known my husband for about seven years before we got married. If you know me, you will know that I am the kind of person that loves my personal life. I have been with my husband for seven years.
“I read some blog’s posts and laugh; they should feel free to tag anybody. I love keeping my personal life private; that is why I decided to marry secretly. I did not get married this year; I only just posted the pictures some months ago.”
“There is time for everything and I want to believe that whatever you want to do, you create the time for it. For me, some people send me messages saying that they have not been seeing me in movies like they used to; sometimes you leave work to pursue money. There are times that I choose a time to do movies and whoever calls me at that time, if I am free, I will shoot about two or three movies.
“There are other times that I can not do movies. Trust me, this clothing business takes time, except you just don’t have that vision. I recently opened a branch in Abuja where I have a house because I have a lot of customers there. Right now, I am more into my business ― making and selling clothes.
“I have the face already. If I leave the movie industry for a while to do my business, I will return and no one will notice that I was gone. I have plenty of films that are not out yet. So, when I am busy doing some other things, those ones will come out. That is how I try to balance them. It is when I have time that I shoot movies”.
