Lupita Nyong’o dazzles fans with impressive rap skills on Live TV show

Oscar Award winning actress Lupita Nyong’o, has impressed people with her rap skills during Jimmy & The Roots segment, on the Tonight show with Jimmy Fallon.

The actress wowed people as she freestyled along to Olly Murs song “Troublemaker”. In her rap, Lupita mentioned how she loved the Carters, adored them, and how they inspire her being a brown skin girl.

The Hollywood star also mentioned her Oscars and her new book Sulwe as she concluded her verse.

Lupita recently launched ‘Sulwe’ a book about a girl whose skin color is darker than everyone else’s in her family.

It’s a book that talks about colourism, self-esteem, and learning that true beauty comes from within.

Last month, she caused a stir on social media after American movie giant, Warner Media Entertainment, chose the star to play the role of a Nigerian character in the movie Adaptation of Chimamanda Ngozi’s 'Americanah'.

Nigerians took to Twitter to express their displeasure stating that Nigeria has fine actresses who can play the role better than Lupita and even suggested Genevive NNaji.

Kenyans on Twitter responded swiftly, defending Lupita whose light continues to shine across the globe, winning one award after another and taking her acting career to the next level.

She has also featured in a theatrical zombie comedy called ‘Little Monsters’ and a movie called ‘Us’.
