Blossom Chuwujekwu is one of the talented actors that is making the movie industry tick at the moment. His fluid acting skills have also endeared him to many.
In an interview with Sunday Scoop, the actor said people often told him that his rise to stardom was swift. He said, “I think I achieved fame earlier than I thought. Everybody tells me that my rise was really fast. It has been amazing. There have been challenges but we have surmounted them and I don’t have any regrets. There are things one might think one could have done better, but there is really no time to regret. The most important thing is to move on and correct any mistake one thinks one has made. My journey, so far, has been really amazing and rewarding. I would credit it all to the grace of God. However, working hard and having the right people around one has been strategic as well. Also, one cannot discount the place of humility. Humility opens doors. One has to stay humble, irrespective of what one thinks one has achieved. I like to learn from people I work with, whether the person is experienced or inexperienced.”
Asked if he had ever rejected a movie script, the ‘Oloture’ actor said, “I had been rejecting movie scripts right from when I started my career. For me, the message and execution is important. That is not to say I have not done some not-so-good ones but I reject scripts a lot. It has to fit my direction and appeal to my spirit. That is apart from the fact that scheduling might also make me reject a script.”
On how he has fared in the throes of the COVID-19 pandemic, Chukwujekwu said, “I play by different rules. I do not operate on this climate. I don’t mean to sound insensitive because I understand that a lot of people were really affected by this. I did what I could in my own little way to help. I pray that all this ends really soon.”
