We can even push the envelope to 20 or 30 depending. OC can definitely pull it off. Just watched him on 2 Brides and a Baby and he does have that typical teenage boyish body. He speaks the language fluently and the phonetics must be in place and heard since the character is coming from a village.

I wonder if he went for the role

Thanks MW. We are off to a good start

Alright then, more names!

If youthful look was the criteria used then both have it. I would have preferred OC because he would nail the character and the language. Looking forward to seeing how John performs.

Second Character - Odenigbo the young professor, dark in complexion, hairy chest and legs, head full of thick hair.

Please suggest others and remember that the role went to Chiwetel Ejiofor.

PS: I haven't read the book, am only suggesting based on the character descriptions. I intend to read it soon though.

I think Chiwetel fits this part perfectly but David is just so striking.
The character is suppose to be dark in complexion and David beats them there. All three gentlemen are more than qualified to play this role. This character also had an afro that he parts to the side. Can't wait to see how Chiwetel breathes life into this character.

Take a look at David

With shapely, I'm thinking Mercy Johnson. But factor in the oval face, large eyes, fair skin, long hair na for weave and I'm going for Omotola, Nse Ekpe or Chelsea Eze or even Megalyn Echikunwoke

Nice ones. I see Nse as a stronger candidate for this character.

Kainene - thin, very tall, belgian chocolate skin color, enigmatic figure who refuses to belong to someone, not just like a son, she’s like two, and a smoker. I do believe that the character's head was shaved.

suggestions please

i'm thinking Nse. or Mercy Johnson if she looses the weight.
these two ladies are fire and can pull off most roles.
