Jussie Smollett: Abel Osundairo Lands Movie Role

Abel Osundairo

A year ago, you can imagine that very few people knew who Abel Osundairo was. But add a pretend attack, some serious buzz and Jussie Smollett’s career and he is now acting in lead roles in movies.

Abel Osundairo who along with his brother perpetrated a staged attack against Jussie Smollett, has copped an acting gig in a movie called ‘Friends, Family and Lovers’ In it, he plays the main character, Dushan.

Little is known about the movie, but it’s safe to say it’s a low-budget movie that wouldn’t be winning any awards soon.


The brothers have been doing all they can to move on from the Jussie Smollett scandal even announcing a visit to Nigeria to carry out a medical outreach in an Instagram post which was captioned: “If you’re in Lagos Nigeria, come and get a free checkup. Hypertension is the single most common risk factor for stroke, chronic kidney disease, and heart failure among adult Nigerians. There is need for increased public health awareness campaigns focused on prevention, early detection, and prompt treatment of hypertension. ”

In an accompanying video they talked about how they had “ medicine, we have water… we have love and good energy.”

Meanwhile Jussie Smollett is busy counter suing the city of Chicago for malicious prosecution after the latter brought a suit claiming damages for the hundreds of man-hours pursuing his case.

Abel Osundairo now has an acting credit to his name and it will be interesting to see how he moves on from here. Is this a one off, or are we about to witness the birth of a new movie star? Time will tell.
