It was neither Genevieve Nnaji nor Funke Akindele – rather, it was Sope Aluko who turned out to be the Nigerian who landed a highly coveted role in Marvel’s Black Panther movie.

Sope Aluko with Lupita Nyong’o

The actress made us proud, wearing Nigerian brand, Deola Sagoe to the movie’s world premiere purple carpet on January 29.

Sope donned a beautiful green and orange lace dress that exuded the ‘Black Royalty’ theme of the premiere.

Sope wore the green custom-made Chantilly lace floor-length dress with an orange peplum detail from leading fashion brand Deola Sagoe. She accessorised with a bracelet from HStern, earrings from Neil Lane, a pair of Stuart Weitzman shoes and a Tyler Ellis clutch.

Sope’s resume has grown steadily over the last few years and the actress has starred in roles including Netflix’s “Bloodline”, NBC’s “Law & Order SVU” and “Parks & Recreation”, and guest appearances on USA Network’s “Burn Notice”, “Graceland” and Lifetime’s “Army Wives” and more.

We look forward to seeing more Nigerians conquering Hollywood.
