Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o has once again skipped Kenya on her ‘African Tour’… sort of. Last time she was in Africa, she was holidaying in Morocco and this time she’s in Uganda and later South Africa.

The Kenyan actress is in the Pearl of Africa to commence the filming of the Disney movie ‘Queen of Katwe’.

While pointing out the name coincidence on Facebook, Lupita made fun of her fake 6000 pearl Oscar 2015 dress.

From 6000 pearls to just 1: Uganda. Excited to be back in East Africa to work with #MiraNair on#QueenOfKatwe. #MaishaAlive #nofilter
