Blessing Awodibu Hints At Upcoming Show, Shares Throwbacks With Fans

Blessing Awodibu has hinted that he’s prepping for a show currently, although fans have been left in the dark as to what show exactly he’s referring to.

Blessing Awodibu is looking absolutely shredded these days — but the real question is: why? Fans were left wondering when Awodibu posted an ambiguous selfie of his progress with a crazed expression on his face and the caption “16 weeks to get sliced & diced.” 16 weeks until what, Blessing?!


With a lot of the bodybuilding competitions starting to bounce back from COVID-19 cancellations, including this year’s Arnold being pushed to September in the hopes that vaccinations will have made it possible for people to actually attend.

As always, Blessing’s form is impeccable and his chest striations and vascularity are crazy enough to make any amateur bodybuilder jealous. Blessing also shared some throwback pictures of his physique with fans, including one shot of one of his first ever posedowns after going pro in 2017. You can see the post in full below.



Many bodybuilders have used the coronavirus pandemic as a chance to get in the best shape of their lives. It’s all about whether you’re willing to rise to the challenge. As the pace of modern life has dramatically slowed down, many of us have an opportunity to return to the basics of fitness and are in turn reminded of the reasons we truly love the sport — the opportunity to work out, feel good in your body, and push yourself beyond your limits to see what you’re truly capable of. Blessing Awodibu is no exception as he looks to be in some of the best shape of his professional career and there’s no telling where that momentum will carry him into 2021.


Blessing also reflected on his humble beginnings in the sport and all the blood, sweat, and tears that went into making his award-winning physique. In this post, also from his debut in 2017, he admits to fans that it was “definitely [his] worst look” on a competitive stage.

“My body was so tired as I literally prepped all year and won all the pro qualifying shows all over Europe that year, I was unstoppable,” he added.

Even though his form is something any amateur would love to have, Blessing still wasn’t satisfied and continued to push forward. All the weight training, bulking, and cutting that professionals go through to make it on the Olympia stage can be rough on the human body and the first few years after going pro can be a tough adjustment period for anyone. However, Blessing didn’t get discouraged; he learned from his mistakes and treated his failures as opportunities to grow. That’s what makes him one of the greatest in the sport today and we can’t wait to see how he does in this upcoming mystery show!
