A tweet from a social media user has caught the attention of Kenyan actress Lupita Nyongo, and for a good reason.
The popular actress was last seen in Kenya last year when she visited her parents, and a video of her cooking ugali went viral. Kenyans praised her for improving her cooking skills with many describing her as wife-material.
She has been in the news lately after a US basketballer termed her ‘ugly’ saying he doesn’t find dark-skinned women good to look at. He was quickly forced to retract his statement after it created an uproar on the internet.
Lupita yesterday responded to a tweet from a twitter fan who made a comment about her and American singer Rihanna. In the tweet, the fan seems to have been excited after seeing a photo of the ‘Queen of Katwe’ actress at a fashion show.
The caption from the fan read;
‘They look like they’re in a heist movie with Rihanna as the tough-as-nails leader/master thief and Lupita as the genius computer hacker.’
This is the photo below. Do you agree?
Check out Lupita’s response to the hilarious comment.
