Nigerian screen diva, Genevieve Nnaji‘s name has replaced Funke Akindele on the cast list for the yet to be released Hollywood superhero film “Avengers: Infinity War”.
Though it hasn’t been confirmed if it is yet another hacker’s stunt, however in the new cast list, Genevieve Nnaji’s name took up Funke Akindele’s alleged role as a member of the Black Panther’s guards – the ‘Dora Milaje’.
This is coming after we reported that actress Funke Akindele, whose name was taken off the cast list just after she became a viral celebrity sensation for having a role in the movie, was never contacted for the movie.
It was gathered the stunt was pulled by a hacker, who indirectly made Funke Akindele a viral celebrity sensation when Nigerians spotted the name.
