Oscar Award winning actress, Lupita Nyong’o was in the country last weekend under very tight security and press involvement, at the invitation of the Kisumu Governor, Anyang’ Nyong’o, who is also her father.
She was in the company of esteemed Ghanaian-British architect, Sir David Frank Adjaye, who was the lead designer of the National Museum of African American History and Culture, located at the National Mall in Washington, DC.
It was mentioned last year that the County government was planning to build a theatre and arts centre which will help nurture the talents and encourage the creativity of young people in Kisumu and it seems like this was on the main agenda of Lupita’s short visit this time around with Architect Adjaye.
Lupita met with various artists from the Lake region and urged them to master their art and promote high quality.
They also had a chance to meet with Hon. Raila Odinga.
