Lesson to all upcoming actors and actresses, spend less money on weaves and red bottom shoes and producing crap (cough cough yvonne nelson, rukky sanda etc etc etc) and invest in taking some courses in Yale or some good acting school. She invested in learning from a great ivy league and it paid off.  

ITS A HIGH TIME WE STOP PRAISING MEDIOCRITY (bad acting, bad producing, nonsensical scriptwriting, foolish titles, several parts etc) THAT HAS BOMBARDED IN AFRICAN MOVIES AND LETS PROOF TO THE WORLD AFRICA HAS WAY MORE GREAT TALENTS SUCH AS LUPITA. I HOPE SHE IS INSPIRING MANY.
.
I love Lupita, She is a Natural Beauty, No Weaves - no Fakes, just Natural Beauty coupled with talent. I mean am so tempted to even cut my perm short and go natural like hers. She is a role model for black beauty.  I mean watch her interviews, very well poised articulate, funny and everything. SHE IS A TRUE STAR. Hollywood cant get enough of her. 
.
She is making Kenya Proud and all of Africa very proud..
.
Thank You Lupita.
Short Bio 
.
Lupita Nyong’o was born in 1983 in Mexico but raised in Kenya. She has five siblings. Her father is Peter Anyang’ Nyong’o, a politician serving in the Kenyan Senate and her mother is Dorothy Nyong’o. Her cousin Isis was named one of Africa’s most powerful women in Forbes in 2012 for being the vice president and managing director of African operations of InMobi, the world’s largest independent mobile advertising network. Her other cousin Tavia Nyong’o is an associate professor at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts. Nyong’o has worked on the production teams of critically acclaimed films including The Constant Gardener (2005) directed by Fernando Mereilles and The Namesake (2006) directed by Mira Nair. 
.
During her summer break from Hampshire College in Amherst, Massachusetts, she flown back to Nairobi to work as a production runner on the set of The Constant Gardener. “Ralph Fiennes was a pivotal influence on me,” she told the New York Post. “He asked me, ‘So what is it you want to do?’ I very shyly, timidly admitted that I wanted to be an actor. He sighed, and he said, ‘Lupita, only be an actor if you feel there is nothing else in the world you want to do – only do it if you feel you cannot live without acting.’ She took his advice and never looked back. 
.
Soon she enrolled at the prestigious Yale School of Drama to brush up on her acting. In May 2012 – three weeks before graduating from Yale – she landed her first film role as Patsey in “12 Years a Slave”. “Never in my wildest dreams did I believe that I’d be involved with a project of this magnitude right after graduating from drama school,” said Lupita. Lupita’s debut feature-length film was creating, producing, directing and editing “In My Genes” – her final thesis project at Hampshire college, where she graduated in 2007. 
.
In My Genes addresses the personal and societal challenges that people with albinism face as members of one of the most hyper-visible and misunderstood minority groups of Kenya’s predominantly black society through the experiences of eight individuals from different cultural and socio-economic backgrounds. 
.
Nyong’o starred in the 2008 short film “East River”, directed by Marc Grey and shot in Brooklyn, New York. She moved back to Nairobi in August 2008 and produced the award-winning MTV Music Video, Little Things We Do, song created and performed by celebrated Wahu and Bobby Wine. Apart from her passion for film and video, Lupita also has over ten years experience in stage acting. She enjoys and practices capoeira and attempts to play the harmonica. In November 2009 she starred in the Kenyan television miniseries “Shuga” as Ayira. 
.
She joined the Yale School of Drama in September 2009 for a Master of Fine Arts in Acting. At Yale she appeared in many stage productions, including Gertrude Stein’s Doctor Faustus Lights the Lights, Chekhov’s Uncle Vanya, and Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew and The Winter’s Tale. Lupita will next be featured in Liam Neeson’s upcoming film “Non-Stop”, set to be released on February 28, 2014.
