According to the character profile on Marvel’s website, Funke Akindele would be playing a member of the Dora Milaje pronounced as “dora-meh-LAH-shay” these role will see the Nigerian screen goddess join a female team of personal bodyguards for Black panther, all recruited from Wakanda. Apart from their protective function, they are a group of powerful and superior Wakandans.
The Dora Milaje were assembled as a group of potential suitors for king. The Wakandans put forth a daughter from every tribe to maintain peace and ensure every tribe had a chance at the crown.
As shocking as this may sound, the Wakandans traditionally speak in Hausa dialect, though only to the king and to each other.
