Nyong’o gushes about Noah
Soon after arriving in South Africa this week, gorgeous Kenyan movie star Lupita Nyong’o imparted some beauty advice.
Laughter provides an excellent abdominal work-out, Nyong’o told her fans online.
The 32-year-old actress was referring to local funnyman Trevor Noah’s one-man show Lost in Translation, which apparently had her in stitches at the Teatro at Montecasino, Joburg, on Friday evening.
“Best ab work-out of the week laughing at his genius stand-up,” she wrote on Instagram.
“Just watched his live show at Montecasino. Run and go and see it.”
Noah tweeted: “I was already having a great time performing in Johannesburg and then Lupita Nyong’o dropped in and made my night.”
Jozi folk should keep their eyes peeled as the actress may be in town for a while to shoot scenes for her latest flick, Queen of Katwe, directed by Indian film maker Mira Nair.
The Disney movie officially began filming in the Ugandan capital, Kampala, on March 28.
Due to delays, the production only moved to South Africa this week, a month later than originally planned.
Based on a true story, the film is about Ugandan Phiona Mutesi, who becomes an international chess champion. Nyong’o plays the role of Harriet Mutesi, Phiona’s mother, whose husband died of an Aidsrelated illness.
