it is not news that actress, Funke Akindele aka Jenifa has been proclaimed to star in Marvel’s forthcoming heavyweight movie, Avengers: infinity war.
Amidst the congratulatory messages loading up on social media per second, just however deep is her character and who exactly she is playing as in this movie?
According to the character profile on Marvel’s website, Funke Akindele would be taking part in a member of the Dora Milaje pronounced as “dora-meh-LAH-shay” these role will see the Nigerian screen goddess be a part of a feminine team of personal bodyguards for black panther, all recruited from Wakanda.
Apart from their protecting function, they’re a gaggle of powerful and superior Wakandans.
The Dora Milaje were assembled as a group of potential suitors for king. The Wakandans put forth a daughter from each tribe to maintain peace and guarantee each tribe had a chance at the crown.
As surprising as this might sound, the Wakandans historically speak in Hausa dialect, although solely to the king and to each other.
