As the Bible aptly states, “Money answereth all things, ” something Lupita Nyong’o is likely aware of. The Kenyan actress is well-heeled financially and probably understands the veracity of this phrase firsthand.
The verse was attributed to the richest man in the Bible-King Solomon. Since money is the means by which material things are obtained, it “meets a response in all things.”
Solomon was fabulously wealthy but he knew that riches had their limitations. He recognised that a materialistic way of life does not unlock the door to happiness.
Lupita recently revealed the tough times she goes through when filming movies. The actress who has all the money she could spend for many lifetimes still desires something only her family can give her-their time, love and companionship.
The Hollywood star recently spoke to British Vogue saying that movie sets can be very lonely places for actors and actresses during shoots.
She explained that she normally gets lonely when fellow cast members go home to their families after their shoots, a privilege she does not enjoy.
“Filming is so time-consuming and intense. With Black Panther, a lot of us were single. On Little Monsters, nobody was single. Everyone, when they are done with their day’s work, wants to go home to their families, which makes a whole lot of sense. When you don’t have that it’s very isolating,” she disclosed.
It should be noted that Kenya’s finest and most well-known actress has no family members abroad as all of them reside in the motherland.
Question is would you rather be like Lupita(with all the money in the world and be far apart from family) or have all the time for family but with little in terms of money?
