Veteran Nollywood actor, Prince Jide Kosoko, born to the Kosoko royal family of Lagos Island is one of the few Nigerians who have been able to participate both in Yoruba and English films. He has worked with prominent entertainment stars in the industry. There is no doubt that he is an authority in the film industry and a role model to many actresses and actors. However, it’s indeed a season of mixed feelings for the actor.
A month after he had gotten congratulatory messages on the birth of a new granddaughter from his firstborn, Sola, he also has cause to jubilate as another grandson from his younger daughter cum actor, Bidemi has been born. Sola, who is also an actor, had given birth in April 13, 2019 after a five-year wait. Married to Waheed Abina, the couple, who got married in 2012, welcomed their second child after their first, who is a 5-year-old girl called Oluwasindara.
Meanwhile, Bidemi, had given birth in the last week of May 2019. Jide Kosoko, the new granddad was so happy and took to his Instagram page to celebrate the births.
