One of Nollywood’s most finest actors and I’m not talking about physique alone, Blossom Chukwujekwu came into the industry about a decade ago and is surely here to stay. He’s turned into one of Netflix’s most popular actors with at least seven of his films in the film catalogue. Here’s a rating of a few of Blossom Chukwujekwu’s films available on Netflix.
This 2017 crime-drama follows the story of a career woman, Abby Bello who was found dead on her wedding anniversary. The detectives on the case suspect foul play and pin her husband, Bello as the prime suspect. Other characters in her life, such as her coworker Brume Idolor (Blossom Chukwujekwu), are also brought in for questioning and are revealed to have plausible motives. Blossom played the hard guy turned fearful-deer character so well in my opinion but I still felt the role was a bit off for him. If he’s not the lead character what’s the point? In terms of delivery, embodiment and overall performance I would rate it a 7/10.
THE VISIT (2015)
Undeniably one of the best Nigerian movies out there (If you don’t agree, na you sabi). There’s a certain je ne sais quoi that makes it so good. Maybe its the almost perfect cast line up made up of Blossom Chukwujekwu, Nse Ikpe-Etim, Femi Jacobs and Bhaira Mcwizu. All I can say is, it’s a great film that exposes the secret of two neighbouring couples as one of them pays the other. Blossom plays the role of Lanre Shagaya, the loud, foul mouth music producer that married the female version of himself Ajiri (Nse Ikpe-Etim). I think loud, reckless roles fit him better, maybe because his physique helps him to express the character better. In terms of delivery, embodiment and overall performance I would rate it a 10/10.
Who’s The Boss (2020)
A feel good movie that tells the story of a brilliant advertising executive, Liah (Sharon Ooja) who creates a fake boss to run her secret ad agency.Blossom plays the role of Lekan a theatre actor and owner and also the fake boss of Liah’s secret advertising agency. Blossom’s role in this film is more like arrogant rich hard guy turned soft lover boy and I can’t lie it fit him, maybe I even blushed. In terms of delivery, embodiment and overall performance I would rate it an 8/10.
Blossom is one actor I genuinely get excited to see on screen because I’m rest assured he always understands the assignment. These three films barely scratch the surface of Blossom Chukwujekwu showreel, if you want to see more of his performances there’s more than enough on Netflix.
