Bolanle shared the news as a caption beneath her video post which was a BTS from her birthday photoshoot:

52 today! Thankful and grateful to ALL the people who have been a part of my imperfect journey. From Lawyer with the United Nations @ the Palais des Nation in Geneva living the glam lifestyle; to UNHCR in Addis Ababa working with the displaced/refugees giving me grounding and teaching me compassion; to Namibia working on development programmes and alleviating poverty; to Law firms teaching me to defend the defenceless and finally to Terra Kulture discovering my soul and meeting the soul of Nigerians and teaching me "TO LOVE". My Terrakulture team. You are the best and all those who passed through us and are passing through us and will pass through us, thank you for teaching me to identify and respect talent. I cherish every memory. As I continue this path with the release of another movie "Palava", I am thankful for the gift of creativity bestowed upon me by God Almighty.
 Palava is a thought-provoking drama addressing topical issues such as family conflict, corrupt agents and love. Will keep you posted. With amazing performances from @bammybestowed @kelechiudegbe@etimeffiong @chiomakpotha @zainab Balogun @ kennethokolie @manuelbimbo @adelaoye@odunsitobi @gregoryojefua@vandora.Vanessa...
