As the year comes to an end Lupita Nyong’o couldn’t help but share her top ten memorable moments of 2015. The award-winning actress started off by commending Anne Kansiime whom she met in Uganda during her shoot for the queen of Katwe, that’s expected to be released sometime next year.
‘I met Anne Kansiime, a woman that has kept me laughing all year long with her antics on Don’t Mess With Kansiime. What heart, what spirit!’
Her heart warming comments cheered up the Ugandan queen of comedy as she said,
It’s fine when you get a gig, make people laugh, get paid and go home.
But when a real gem acknowledges your struggle, it’s everything.
To late for those that hadn’t wished me a Merry Xmas.
My xmas is merry enough already now.
Thank you Lupita Nyong’o.
When the two first met back in April, it was all smiles. ‘First of all, I could hardly speak, I was screaming inside, I had a thousand questions to ask but instead stared at her throughout,’ Kansiime said before commending the 12 years a slave actress ‘she is so real, so botanical indeed, she hasn’t forgotten herself at all and am still recovering from the whole experience.’
