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.
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.
