We appreciate the African story line and set in the highly anticipated movie focused on celebrating black excellence, which was premiere yesterday, Friday, February 16, 2018 across African countries like Nigeria and South Africa.
We have observed many comments about how interesting viewers found the blockbuster movie and how they would have loved if more African actors featured in the film, but because we love celebrating exceptional talents, we are more interested in enlightening you about the Nigerian pearl, Sope Aluko who acted in the movie.
Though a Hollywood actor, Sope Aluko was born in Nigeria but primarily raised in the UK. She has dual-citizenship in both the US and the UK, and speaks four different languages, including her native language, Yoruba.
Sope has been a great actor for some years now but she suddenly gained global recognition after landing a coveted role in highly anticipated movie “Black Panther“.
In the past couple of years, Sope has had roles on 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”. Her film credits include supporting roles in feature films like “Identity Thief”, “Pitch Perfect 2”, “96 Minutes”, “Grass Stains”, “The Good Lie” and more.
Sope is a mother to two teenage boys, and currently splits her time between Miami and Los Angeles.

About Black Panther
The Black Panther movie is based on a comic book series from Marvel Comics. First published in July 1966, the comic was originally created by legendary comic book writer Stan Lee and Jack Kirby.
The comic was groundbreaking at the time since it was the first mainstream American comic series to feature an African-American hero as its titular character during a period of social upheaval surrounding desegregation and the Civil Rights Movement in the United States.
Much like the film, the comic book centers around T’Challa, the king and tireless defender of the fictional African nation of Wakanda. Debuting in the Fantastic Four comic book series, the Black Panther draws his powers from ancient Wakandan rituals as well as his physical strength, expertise in science, hand-to-hand fighting abilities and advanced technology.
