Shortly after filming Bombshell, Obirora started a seven-month run in the play Elmina’s Kitchen written by Kwame Kwei-Armah, at the Garrick Theatre. He also had a role in the stage play Exclude Me, completing a successful 11-week run on stage at The Chelsea Theatre and lead roles in the play Fallout at the Royal Court Theatre and Badnuff at The Soho Theatre.

Obiora has had television roles in My Family, Judge John Deed, Misfits, Sea of Souls, ITV1’s Afterlife , Doctor Who, Doctors, Powers, The Bill and Holby City. He was in four episodes of EastEnders, the first episode of which aired on 11 June 2009, in which he played playboy footballer, Ellis Prince.

Obiora played receptionist Ben Trueman in the BBC One drama series Hotel Babylon, which was cancelled after its fourth series. He will join the cast of the long-running medical drama Casualty for its 26th season playing the part of Lloyd, a nurse.
