Oscar-winner Lupita Nynog’o is reportedly dating GQ Style fashion editor Mobolaji Dawodu for six months now. The Kenya-raised actress, 33, and Dawodu were introduced through mutual friends in the fashion world, reported Us magazine quoting a friend.
Both of them share a passion for fashion and clothing. She and Dawodu, who has a young daughter, are clearly on the same fashion page. In a June 12 Instagram he shared with his nearly 6,000 Instagram followers, they posed in coordinated denim and orange-hued outfits. Dawodu has apparently told his friends about his new relationship. “He’s discreetly told people they are dating,” the friend said.
Recently the Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o was in talks to join Chadwick Boseman in director Ryan Coogler’s Black Panther movie. The Creed filmmaker is adapting the comic book for the big screen and he wants the 33-year-old “12 Years a Slave” star to join him, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Boseman was introduced as the Black Panther in the new Captain America movie earlier this month. N’yongo’s character has not been revealed, but insiders suggest she’s circling the role of the title character’s love interest.
Lupita Nyong’o was left in awe with the “resilience of spirit” in Uganda, after filming her new film “Queen of Katwe” in one of the country’s poorest neighbourhoods.
She portrays Harriet Mutesi, the mother of real-life chess prodigy Phiona Mutesi who despite their family’s impoverished circumstances becomes a world champion, in the film, reported Contactmusic.
“There is an ease in the Ugandan demeanour that is very welcoming,” she said.
“I love the melody of the accent, the food, the music and the people’s inherent style. There was a familiarity with my home country, being right next door, but also complete surprise in what was so different. There is a resilience of spirit in Uganda
