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.
