The buzz of inclusion and removal of Nollywood actress, Funke Akindele to the cast list of yet to be released Marvel Studio’s movie “Avengers: Infinity War”, is not dying down soon as Cool FM OAP, Daddy Freeze, has lent his voice to the struggle.
Here’s what he wrote;
Apparently Funke AKINDELE was not billed to be a part of the latest #Avengers Infinity. The latest gist is that her pic was put there by a hacker…..
If only Marvel studios knew what the hacker had done for them, they would have found him paid him and quickly contacted @funkejenifaakindele, found a role for her, shot her along with the cast and with the publicity and sales in Africa alone, possibly doubled their income.
I was heart broken when I saw that she was taken off the list……..
Funke Akindele’s colleague, Tonto Dikeh, who commented on the post, wrote;
Sad,was so happy) well,she is our Star and we love her regardless..it will happen,this just paved the way I sense it..
