Toni Tones spits truth about Sola Sobowale in King of Boys

The Nollywood actress Toni Tones says she even had to drop about 40pounds and crack her voice a bit in a bit to sound like Sola Sobowale in the movie just screened on Netflix. For her it wasn’t a straightforward process, it took some very careful planning.

She explained: “I studied Aunty Sola everyday for two months straight, so much, I saw and heard her in my dreams. Putting on weight for this role was no joke, 15kg to be exact and I still haven’t finished loosing the weight. Cracking my voice on purpose was quite dangerous to be honest especially because I’m also a musician. It took 6 weeks after shoot for my voice to go back to normal, I took this #YoungEni’s voice to my next project. I started to panick at one point because it was taking so long and I began to wander if my voice would ever go back to normal Or I had done permanent damage to it.”
