Pose like a trophy when Naomis walk in
She need an Oscar for that pretty dark skin
Pretty like Lupita when the cameras close in
Drip broke the levee when my Kellys roll in
I think tonight she might braid her braids
Melanin too dark to throw her shade
She minds her business and wines her waist
Gold like 24k, okay, “ lyrics from the song reads.

She also mentioned her success including winning the Oscar award and her self-love children’s book, Sulwe, which she will be dropping on October 15.

In the book, Lupita seeks to inspire children to see their own unique beauty.
