Social Media: Twitter reacts as Kenyan Lupita acts Igbo character in movie

Nigerians have taken to Twitter to express their opinion about the decision of American movie Giant, WarnerMedia Entertainment, to have US-based, Oscar-winning Kenyan actress, Lupita Nyong’o, play a Nigerian character in the movie adaptation of Chimamanda Adichie’s novel, Americanah.



Lupita, daughter of a Kenyan politician, was born in Mexico City, where her father was teaching, and was raised in Kenya from the age of one.

WarnerMedia Entertainment had announced on Friday that a quartet of Plan B Entertainment, Eba Productions, Potboiler Television and D2 Productions will produce adaptation of Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s best-selling novel, Americanah.



Americanah is an epic story of a woman born in Nigeria who leaves for America and her extraordinary experiences with love, heartache, adversity and self-discovery.

However, Nigerians have expressed different perspectives about the casting. (Punch)
