If there is anything Blossom Chukwujekwu does, it is to fully immerse himself in any role he plays in a movie, so much so that you wonder how he does it. His role in the 2015 movie, The Visit, where he played Lanre Shagaya, and as Eric in the 2023 movie, The Trade, come to mind. He is what one can call a methodical actor, he learns new mannerisms, dialects, and languages to perform his roles. Some of the movies are not the best, but he would usually perform his role in a stellar manner.
