Lupita is being nominated for her role in the Broadway smash hit Eclipsed where she plays ‘The Girl’.

The play, set in 2003, tells the story of five women near the end of the Second Liberian Civil War.

It is almost entirely set in a small one-room shack where three of the women are being held by the Commanding Officer of a rebel faction, who basically uses them as sex slaves.

Congrats to Lupiat. Making Kenya proud
