Just a few days ago, “Anikulapo” was declared the Year 2022’s most-watched movie on Netflix, and definitely one of the best movies of 2022.

Just when many were still talking about his role in “Anikulapo”, Toyin Abraham premiered, her latest movie “Ijakumo” on cinemas, with Kunle Remi as one of the leads as well where he played a Pastor.

According to him “growing up, I think I had wanted to be a Pastor, I admired Pastors, I think I have the calling, I have always been meaning to act the character.

“My role as a Pastor in Ijakumo is like a journey, like Saro in Anikulapo, I really enjoyed making Ijakumo with Toyin Abraham.”

He also nailed the role, and fans have been commending him for his talents and creativity in taking up and interpreting unusual roles perfectly. He was taken out of his comfort zone (interpreting the role of a playboy or lover boy) in movies, to a more challenging role up to the extent, that he had to speak typical Yoruba the dialect in Ibadan language fluently, and he was still able to do it perfectly.

This made his rating soar and he gained more prominence globally, with lots of A-list producers already waiting in line to feature him in movies.
