NAIJ.com earlier shared the big news of Nollywood actress, Funke Akindele being cast in Hollywood block buster movie, Avengers Infinity War. The movie which is set to be released this year will feature the 40-year-old famous Jenifa actress.
Nigerians who have heard of the sterling feat of the actress have shown how proud they are on various social media platforms with most congratulating her for achieving such greatness in the international scene.
Just as Nigerians keep praising Funke, a certain social commentator, Mark Anthony Osuchukwu wrote an open letter to the actress, thanking her for making Nigerians proud and putting Nigeria's name on the map for good.
In his letter which he shared on social media, Mark said:
"Funke Akindele Bello!!
You have bellowed your name into the ears of Africa and now, woman’s international. You know, things like this makes me generally emotional and mushy. I mean, this is a stark case of grace, hard work and drive. When I saw the news that you are making an appearance in an Avengers movie, I was elated. For a while, I tried to sink that in."
"When you started the Jenifas diary, I had people who said that you are all about scattering good English and poisoning our generation with bad English. I laughed because they were mostly people that voted for Buhari. I mean, what else can come out from their brains except worm infested ideas and thoughts? I am happy that you are a source of pride for we Nigerians."
"You have done for us what Buhari and his gang haven’t done. Putting us on the map for a good reason. Wizkid and Davido have done theirs and are still doing theirs. Great day to be a Nigerian! Let’s keep working and ignore Buhari."
Funke who has been trending on social media since the news came out is yet to respond to the praises she has been getting from her fans. However, the Jenifa character has been busy giving her fans doses of comedic scenes in her popular TV series, Jenifa Diaries every other week.
