LUPITA NYONGO AND DAD ANYANG NYONGO

Kenyan-Mexican actress Lupita Nyong'o sent her father, Kisumu Governor Peter Anyang' Nyong'o, a happy fathers day message. Just like hundreds of Kenyans, Lupita took to social media to express her appreciation for her father. In the post, she wrote. 


"I am the daughter of the son of The Long One, who walks on the backs of Elephants and Hippos. I am the daughter of the great one," Lupita posted on Facebook.


Adding, 


"Happy Fathers Day, Daddy. Cherishing the precious few moments, I have to just chill out with you and hear your tales. I love you! Governor Anyang' Nyong'o," Lupita said.


The Kenyan Oscar-winning actress was proposed by many Kenyans on social media as the perfect choice as Kenya's Tourism ambassador, but In January, Lupita laughed off claims by Tourism Cabinet Secretary Najib Balala that the film star wasn't settled on as Kenya's Tourism ambassador because she was inaccessible to the Kenyan Government.


Taking to her Twitter page Friday, Lupita posted a picture of herself in animated laughter, ostensibly to mock Balala over his claim.

"Me when I hear the Kenyan Ministry of Tourism has been looking for me for fives years. #Imrightherebaby #alternativefacts," she said, suggesting that the minister had not reached her to discuss the deal.
