Igbos are doing their biz in each and every country/state/city in the world and have town union meetings too which they attend. They organize events, do charity and generally take care of the community they reside in.

Ask lupita who she buys her pro African attires from and it’s probably a Nigerian and a high probability it’s an igboid Igbo ipob etc. people like lupita don’t shop in regular boutiques as her tailor must come based on recommendation.

I don’t blame her, she should learn the language so she can haggle better and stop falling mugu when she’s shopping.

Its a good thing she's learning Igbo cause a lot of Nigerians bashed her on Twitter for she wasn't qualified to play that role cause of the Igbo language and accent she lacks

I like that Lupita is so comfortable in her skin. I hope our own acting celebs will learn something from her.

Small fame, gretyrivs.

@topic, Welcome to Lagos Lupita, The African Queen.

The rate the issue of TRIBALISM is going on in this forum is getting more sickening by the day

Just imagine comments from the so called leaders of tomorrow!
