Swanky JKA reveals technique adopted in Living in Bondage sequel

Nollywood actor Swanky JKA has revealed the technique he adopted in perfecting his role in the movie Living In Bondage: Breaking Free.

In an Instagram post on Tuesday, the actor shared a clip of the part in the movie where he seemed to stab himself, alongside clips of other actors including Hollywood veteran Will Smith, revealing that he asked his colleague Shawn Faqua who acted as his brother in the movie to hit him in the groin.

‚ÄúTobe (@shawnfaqua) kicked me in the Gonads to inspire me. Actors get in here. Politicians and Performers. Even Will Smith in slide 3 used it in Pursuit of Happiness…,” he wrote.

Born Jideofor Achufusi, Swanky started out as a model, but later began acting with minor roles.

His character as Nnamdi Okeke in 2019 movie Living in Bondage: Breaking Free earned him a Best Actor nomination and a Trailblazer award, both at the Africa Magic Viewers’ Choice Awards in 2020.
