Which is why he was honored due to the body of work he has done in his life and continues to do. The village had a ceremony for him and bestowed him Chief. Forgive me I forgot his African Name and full title.

Just saw a comment asking “Why is Forest Whittaker still talking in his African Voice like he’s still filming the movie?” This is his natural accent. His mother is Akhan (Ghana) and his father Igbo (Nigeria). Both his parents are highly educated as is he. Do better. He is also a Chief, this is a very prestigious title!!! I had the pleasure of meeting and working with Forest when I was cast in North and South. In fact, it was Patrick Swayze that introduced us to the Warner Bros. set and his voice was just the same back then in the 80’s. He’s so humble and blesses. Wakanda forever. Well I went to see black panther today, and it took me about 30 minutes to stop speaking in an African accent, if I was around native Africans that spoke English with their accent for a month, I will probably continue to speak like that forever it sounds so beautiful to me. He doesn’t seem to speak with any accent at all. He just sounds like himself.

Whatever the case, the movie was awesome. For brown people, it surely brought a range of emotions that many may not understand. I took my daughter and she had a thousand questions, which let me know I need to do better in educating her about her roots, but it was amazing for her to see people on screen, in positive roles, who look like her. I was just so impressed and pleased with the movie and its message. Well, there it is family bet many did know that. In my world view its no crime to change up speaking dialect wish many of us were the privilege to that. Others do it. You do there’s nothing like a specific African accent. Am akan as well. My english accent differs from people from other tribes in ghana. In ghana its mostly about your tribe and the town you went to school. Am guessing it the same with nigerians. I met an yuroba who didn’t sound like an Igbo speaking english.
