Nigerians Winning: Funke Akindele and Nnedi Okoroafor

This is 2018 and our social media news feeds have been graced with both good news and also sad news, but I am a lover of good news, so let’s share.

Nollywood is our own movie and entertainment industry, same way Hollywood is to the Americans. Over the years, the industry has grown and we have witnessed the rise of so many actors and actresses and those who became producers and directors too.

Nollywood and Hollywood have began a not so long a time collaborations. We have had the likes of Genevieve Nnaji and a few others who Nollywood actors who have also been seen on Hollywood movies.

Yesterday, the social media went crazy over the news of the inclusion of our very own Funke Akindele popularly known as Jenifa as cast in “Avengers: Infinity Wars, set to be released in May, 04 2018.






This was following the news sometime in October 2017 when Nnedi Okoroafor, a Nigeria born science fiction and fantasy writer announced she is to write Marvel’s “Black Panther”

With the news of Nigerians winning globally, I am excited our women are topping the league of world winners.








Who else foresees a Movie where Funke Akindele and Taraji P. Henson acts as twin?
