PICS: Lupita Nyong'o in Uganda

Academy Award winning actress Lupita Nyong'o is currently in Uganda working on a new highly anticipated movie 'Queen of Katwe'.
Btw, I love that Lupita wore a dress from a Ugandan label, Kwesh in the pic above! Gotta support our own!

The upcoming Disney flick 'Queen of Katwe' will be based on the life of Fiona Mutesi (pictured above) a Ugandan teenage girl who grew up on the streets of Katwe playing chess since her childhood and because of that, she has traveled and met prominent people like Gary Kasparov, the greatest chess player ever, Bill Gates, Bill Clinton among others. Lupita will player her Fiona's mother in the movie

Lupita received a warm welcome at a fundraiser and discussion on the movie in Kampala on Saturday. A few fans even snuck in a few selfies...I can just imagine the excitement in the air!

Lupita shared the pic above with fans tweeting: "From 6000 pearls to just 1: Uganda. Excited to be back in East Africa to work with @MiraPagliNair on #QueenOfKatwe'

Can't wait to watch it!
