Kenya’s Oscar Award winning actress Lupita Nyong’o has proven that her talents know no bounds after releasing a video clip spitting an impressive freestyle. The video has caused quite a stir on social media.
The star who recently revealed that she finally learnt how to cook Ugali, the staple diet in the Kenya, and across the continent has shown that she has what it takes to conquer the game on the microphone.
The 55-second long video was posted this week on Facebook and Instagram and the 33 year-old star took the opportunity to introduce her alter ego, “troublemaker”, rapping over American celebrated rapper, Nas’ “NY State of Mind” off his album Illmatic.
In the video she raps: “Mexican born, Kenya runnin’ through my veins, dark chocolate, plus I keep a sharp mane”,
“Disney on the books, so you know I stay paid. Next stop Katwe, rocking out with David. Don’t do critics — if you’re hating, please save it”.
We applaud the Hollywood star’s impressive rapping skills and we certainly hope a collaboration with American or our very own African rappers is on the way.
