In Wakanda Forever, a war erupted as the Jabari, a small tribe of Wakanda with a special connection to gorillas, fought to retain their faith. After the death of King T’Chaka, the Jabari began the cult of the sacred White Gorilla, a practice that was considered blasphemy by more fundamentalist tribes. When they began plans to conquer all of Wakanda, the new King T’Challa condemned the tribe and dispersed them throughout the country. The Jabari used to be known by another name, but began calling themselves the Jabari in honor of one of their greatest warriors, who gave his life for his people.

Jermaine Brantley’s Work
“As a creator, performer, and director, I’ve always had an admiration for how films are made. The creativeness and ingenuity it takes to make a production come to life from inception to the film screen is astonishing!”.
“Through the lens of an actor, working with my colleagues filming scenes where we can be vulnerable, tapping into a variety of emotions from sad moments to celebratory times, is also moving to me. Everyone on set works as a team and is passionate about the work that we are all doing to not just entertain but inspire the world.”
“My purpose is to help others by being a positive influence in society, becoming a better business man, leader, teacher, and the lists goes on. When you are constantly growing mentally, spiritually, and physically, it is beyond fulfilling.”
“I see myself continuing to do what I love and work on growing (in every area of life), to be that power beacon of light by sharing my story through my work in the entertainment industry”.
