Kehinde Bankole is one actor in the industry that is deserving of all the recognition and accolades that come her way. She’s truly one of those rare actors that you watch get better by the year but somehow it doesn’t always click that she’s always been so talented. Here is a rating of a few of Kehinde Bankole’s films available on Netflix.

October 1 (2014)

This is one of the first projects I took notice of Kehinde Bankole. The entire film left me speechless and unbelievably impressed by each cast and crew member. Although she had already been in the industry way before October 1, her performance as Miss Tiwa, a small-town teacher, put her in a different limelight. She gave just the right amount of what she was supposed to give without overdoing it.  In terms of delivery, embodiment, and overall performance I would rate it an easy 9.5/10.

Dear Affy (2020)

I watched this 2020 film only just a couple of weeks ago and it solidified my suspicion of Kehinde Bankole being THAT girl. She played the role of Affy, an art gallery owner whose relationship faces obstacles while on the verge of getting married. The entire film was mostly a run-around of Affy trying to remember who she slept with on a drunk night out, but with a sprinkle of romance and many emotional scenes. Before watching this film, I had always had the impression that Kehinde Bankole was a good actor, but after watching this, I now understood why the film has about nine award nominations between 2020 and 2022. Her ability to conjure emotions so raw and undiluted, with ease, is noteworthy and one for the books.  In terms of delivery, embodiment, and overall performance I would rate it an 8.5/10.

Mama Drama (2020)

Although her character, Kemi, in Mama Drama didn’t require intense displays of emotions all the time, it’ll be a lie to say she didn’t eat up her role either way. In my opinion, I believe she’s so effortless in her work, you sometimes don’t realize she’s giving a stellar performance.  In terms of delivery, embodiment, and overall performance I would rate it an 8/10.

The Set Up (2019)

Also a minor role with little screen time, but trust she was able to deliver still. With her role as Grace being a minor role with not enough screentime, I believe she did the best she could with the role. As aforementioned, her performances are so effortless it doesn’t make you think twice.  In terms of delivery, embodiment, and overall performance I would rate it an 8/10.
