‘Coming 2 America’ Actor Rotimi Is Juggling Both His Music and Acting Career Well
The man of multiple talents, Olurotimi Akinosho, aka Rotimi, is handling his professional commitments pretty well even though he works two jobs as an artist. One as an actor and the other as a singer and musician.
Working Two Jobs
The Coming 2 America actor took to his Instagram to write about his two jobs as he shared a picture of himself on the movie sets in November 2020. Rotimi is seen reading a file in the picture, wearing a light grey hoodie sitting comfortably on a couch.
The artist captioned the picture “When you got TWO jobs” and ended it with the hashtags #MovieLife #BackAtIt. Rotimi shared the post after the lockdown was officially removed in the USA, and the movie shoots had just begun after the pandemic.
The fans seemed happy seeing their icon back to shooting as they flooded the comments section with positive responses. One of the top comments read, “You are on the right path, hard work pays off! Much success to you Ro ðŸ‘” while another individual commented, “Multitasker.”
The post was uploaded during his birthday month, November, so his followers also commented several birthday wishes and congratulated him for the success.
Moreover, in a quarantine interview with Hot 97 in May 2020, Rotimi talked about proving himself in the music industry along with some acting tips.
Rotimi has made a huge mark in the acting world with a variety of roles throughout his career. When asked how hard it was to get people to take him seriously as a singer as much as they do him as an actor, the Power actor replied it used to be difficult for people to differentiate him between an actor and a singer but not anymore. Rotimi further explained that the numbers don’t lie as the song views and stream counts globally have been an immense success.
His song ‘Love Rhythm’ globally did a hundred million streams, and its success turned the conversation of his success in both the worlds. The music matches up to the audience’s expectations, he added.
“You know it used to be, but then numbers don’t lie. Love Rhythm globally did a hundred million streams.”
The talented singer also explained that many actors had tried their hands in acting, but few have been able to pull it off. So, one needs to be different to create an impact in both fields. Rotimi gave some examples of legendary artists like Jamie Foxx and Harry Belafonte, who are successful in both areas.
The True to the Game 2 actor also cleared out the misconceptions of the people who thought he entered the music industry after working as an actor. He revealed he had been making music much before he started acting in movies.
“The thing is for me, I have always been doing music way before I started acting, so that’s the misconception.”
In the interaction, he also opened up that he always had a passion for music but is still learning to act. But people are learning about his story recently, he said.

After releasing songs like Love Somebody, Gotta Leave, UNITY, and many more in 2020, he gained a separate fan base as a singer. His acting in the 2020 thriller movie, True to the Game 2 was also appreciated by the audience.
