Akindele was initially listed alongside other cast of the movies, including Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Robert Downey Jr, Scarlet Johannson among others.
“Avengers: Infinity War” is the most anticipated film of 2018, and assembles all superheroes in the Marvel cinematic universe.
The 1st trailer for the movie became the most-viewed trailer debut ever, with over 230 million views in its first 24 hours.

Reactions to the removal of Akindele’s name from “Avengers: Infinity War” IMDB Page

For my @TNSnigeria column, I wrote a bit about the efforts of Marvel Studios and Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures to appeal to Nigerian audiences. https://tns.ng/funke-akindele-in-avengers-what-does-this-mean-for-nollywood/amp/?__twitter_impression=true …
UPDATE: Funke Akindele’s name has been removed from the film’s IMDb page. Was this studio-engineered “fake news” designed to drum up interest in the film among Nigerian audiences?
I knew it when funke Akindele did not acknowledge the receipt of your appreciation tweets towards her inclusion in the avengers that something was amiss.
lol people are saying they removed funke akindele’s name from the cast when she was never even a cast in the movie
Can’t believe some Nigerians are happy Funke Akindele’s name was reportedly removed from Avengers: Infinity War cast.
It’s funny some of you were so happy funke akindele’s name was removed from avengers cast. Like we’re from another country and we’re beefing Nigerians or something. Why so happy tho?
Conspiracy theory,
Bubu bribed Imdb to put Funke Akindele up so that Nigerians would forget the Fulani herdsmen killings.😢😢
Funke Akindele is one of Nigeria’s finest actresses. With a career that has spanned two decades, Akindele has many hit movies in her filmography.

L. A Prisoners Infect Themselves With Coronavirus To Get Early Release (VIDEO)

Published

By

A group of silly L.A area prison inmates were very eager to contract the dreaded coronavirus .

They attempted this because they believed that would trigger their ticket out of prison.

According to the L.A. County Sheriff Alex Villanueva who made the startling revelation Monday, said about twenty-four (24) inmates at the Pitchess Detention Center in Castaic attempted (and somewhat succeeded, apparently) to infect themselves way back in mid-April 2020.

The Sheriff revealed that their department saw an increase in spike in confirmed cases out of nowhere.

He said that when they investigated, they found a high number of inmates living in one block of the prison appeared to be deliberately trying to infect each other with COVID-19 any way they could from behind bars.

When Alex Villanueva played the surveillance footages he and his team combed through carefully , and it showed several inmates hanging out in a common area and passing around what Alex described as a hot cup of water, as well as one face mask they’d each put on all in hopes of getting sympathy from a judge to spring them from the facility and let them go home.

But it turns out, their little ploy worked but, only halfway.

Villanueva reported that 21 of the inmates (out of 50 in the block) caught the ‘Coronavirus.

“What they won’t catch is a break” said the Sheriff.

The Buhari administration has been known for enforcing the Nigerian people to patronize Nigerian made goods though without much strategy to make life easier while this transition to economic growth is enforced. Many Nigerians have tagged it a harsh move that is insensitive and inhumane but moreso, Reno Omokri has singled out signals of hypocrisy in the President of Nigeria by outlining certain traits of family moves of the President that shows that he(Buhari) as the No.1 citizen has no regards for anything made in Nigeria but yet wants other Nigerians to embrace Nigerian made goods.

Reno Omokri ‘s tweet reads:

His kids schooled in England. His wife just returned from a 3 month UK stay. His daughter gave birth to his grandchild in Spain (made in Spain), yet
@MBuhari
