Funke Akindele, whom we all know as “Jenifa”, has been named as one of the personal bodyguards for the Black Panther in the movie, Avengers: Infinity War. The latest Avengers movie is to released later this year, 2018.
Funke Akindele’s name was published on IMDB, a movie database website owned by Amazon.
Honestly, I was pleasantly shocked and surprised that our very own ‘Jenifa’ has joined the ranks of Nigerians breaking into the international movie and music scene. But a friend then said, “Hope say she no go use wrong grammar as she take dey do for Jenifa?”
That question or observation was quite hilarious because I know Funke Akindele to be quite educated. And by the way, she most likely won’t get to speak in the movie. I don’t think bodyguards do much talking like that.
Anyways, what’s Marvel’s latest Avengers movie about?
Remember that bad guy in Guardians of the Galaxy? The tough, big, and kinda ugly dude? He also showed up in Thor. Yeah, THANOS. He’s going to be the newest danger the Avengers and their allies will have to face. His plan will be to collect all six Infinity Stones (they’ve been showing up in the Marvel Cinematic Universe) and use them to dominate the universe(s)?
Anyways, get ready for a whole lot of action, fight scenes, and comedy. The Guardians of the Galaxy are involved, so it can’t be all that serious? Yeah?
We’ve got movie stars like Scarlett Johansson, Bernicio Del Toro, Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jnr, Zoe Saldana, and so many more; making Avengers: Infinity War the most anticipated superhero flick of the year.
Congrats, Funke Akindele. We’re proud of you and every other Nigerian making waves out there.
