Twitter Streets: The Most Talked About Trends Today – September 16
Lupita caught in the middle of KOT vs Nigeria Tweef
Kenyans and Nigerians on Twitter are tweefing over our girl Lupita staring in the upcoming movie Americanah. She’ll be playing a Nigerian character in the movie adaptation of Chimamanda Adichie’s novel of the same name.
Lupita is African so are:
Shatta Wale…etc (King Lion;The gift)

Lupita is going to play Ifemelu from Igbo land Nigeria? I love Lupita a lot, but this is not it. Feels like she’s the default pick whenever Hollywood needs an African Actress. If it’s too hard to find one in Nigeria, give us Yvonne Orji? Cynthia Erivo? Tracy Ifeachor? https://t.co/jbgey6CUvx

So this is the Igbo accent that Nigerians think Lupita can’t mimic? Even a two year old can do it effortlessly. pic.twitter.com/o2n2D6wsfd

Stop Letting your Kids Watch Love & Hip Hop!
Foul mouthed unanamed kid went viral on twitter for going on a love & Hip-Hop-esque rant. He was upset with someone named Nikita

Nikita’s Dad responded
Nonsense, Nikita is clearly the bully and the boy just acted out of anger https://t.co/0BejTbhHsw

I have no doubt nikita ran her mouth, she did, if you grow up in a religious home in Kenya you grow up as a homophobe, calling him gay isn’t an issue to most parents, Nikita isn’t wrong to them, him acting feminine is an issue. There is the issue.

Assuming this is real, Baba Nikita is soooooo full of shit. Like, he is gagging in it. Pretending to be concerned about the boy, while basically ignoring his daughter’s part in all this….and all but calling for the boy’s expulsion from school.
He is a HUGE part of the problem pic.twitter.com/cBDfdNxrX0
