Bigger Than Jussie: The Disturbing Need For A Modern-Day Lynching
When Jussie Smollett took Bola Osundairo under his wing, grooming him for greater roles in Hollywood, the UNTHINKABLE happens… Bola Osundairo couldn’t believe his luck when actor, Jussie Smollett, took an interest in him. He barely knew the man when he was hired to be an extra on the hit show Empire. Within a short time, thanks to Jussie’s assistance, Bola became a stand-in. His star was on the rise. Ola Osundairo became an extra on Empire before Bola. Soon he was in a picture with the creator of the show that was posted on Instagram. His acting career was blasting off. When Jussie asks for a favor, Bola is only too happy to help. At first, when he heard Jussie’s plan, he thought it was a joke. Why would Jussie need a modern-day lynching? Jussie assured him things like this were normal in Hollywood. When Jussie asked if Bola knew of someone who could help, Bola knew his brother, Ola, would be perfect. Things didn’t go as planned, at least the brothers didn’t think so. Ola was instructed by Jussie to place one of the ‘props’, a rope made into a noose, around Jussie’s neck. But that didn’t happen. Ola got spooked and ran off before doing so. When word got out about the modern-day lynching, the brothers learned when Jussie reported the ‘crime’ he wore the noose. Why did he put the noose around his own neck? No man would ever willingly put a noose on themselves, much less a black man! Suddenly, Bola and Ola find themselves outcasts in Hollywood, dropped by a major casting agency, and their lives totally turned upside down. Who are Ola and Bola Osundairo? They are so much more than the ‘attackers’ in Jussie’s modern-day lynching hoax. Get to know the American-Nigerian brothers. Find out why Jussie knew Bola would agree to help him before he ever asked him to. The truth of this hoax comes to light through text messages, emails, and never-before-seen evidence that removes all doubt of the brother's involvement and explains why Bola and Ola agreed to take on this role. Was Jussie really trying to help the Osundairo brothers, or was he preparing them for the acting role that would prevent them from ever acting again? Take a deep dive into the Smollett case, with a special emphasis on the biographical elements. As Bola and Ola strive to rise from the ashes, they are troubled by unanswered questions which leads to their quest for the truth. What they learn brings to light one controversial question that when combined with historical facts leaves one to think, was there a political need for modern-day lynching? Was the real motive Bigger Than Jussie?
