lupita1Kenyan-Mexican actress Lupita Nyong’o has earned yet another enviable accolade to her growing list of commendations.

Coming off a splendid performance of the play ‘Eclipsed’ recently, the actress has had a day dedicated to her. This is after the Harlem Community declared October 20th Lupita Nyong’o Day in Harlem, New York.

Coincidentally, it is the same date Kenyans celebrate ‘Mashujaa Day’, a public holiday set aside to honor Kenyan heroes.

A jubilant Lupita took to her Facebook page to thank the Harlem community by saying; “October 20th declared Lupita Nyong’o Day in Harlem?! My heart is swollen with the love and welcome I just received from the Harlem Community at @MIST_harlem @michaelaangelad ‪#‎EclipsedPlay‬‪#‎HarlemWorld‬ @publictheaterny THANK YOU”
