A few days ago, News broke that Top Nollywood actress Funke Akindele-Bello had been cast for a minor role in Hollywood anticipated superhero movie Avengers: Infinity Wars. The movie website and IMDd page also showed the actress listed as a member of the Black Panther’s guards and was listed ‘Dora Milaje’, well, it turned out that the news is fack and the sites were hacked.
According to LIB after investigations, Funke Akindele was never contacted by the movie makers and did not go for any casting. Someone for some reason hacked the website of the movie and added Funke’s name as a cast member. The huge African stars fans spotted it and it immediately became an internet sensation.
The Jenifa actress also said she found out about it just the way everyone did on Wednesday. This explains why she never acknowledged the news on any of her social media platforms. The filmmakers have since then rectified the problem yesterday and removed her name from the list.
We all wish this was true news and hope the deserving actress gets something huge come her way soon.
