According to Solace, her mother lost all the properties after her father passed away when she was 4 because she couldn't deliver a male child.

Left to cater for 5 daughters alone, her mother struggled to make ends meet.

She said there wasn't any term in primary school they weren't sent home for not paying their school fees.
