Friday, September 23, 2016 - Despite winning an Oscar and starring in several movies, Lupita Nyong’o’s name has proven particularly difficult for Americans to not only pronounce but also spell.
The beautiful actress was on the Jimmy Kimmel show on Wednesday night to promote her new movie ‘Queen of Katwe’ and during the ‘Spellebrity’, segment, Kimmel went to the street to ask Americans to spell the name ‘Lupita Nyong’o’.
He started with $5 and doubled the money every time someone got it wrong.
As expected several people got the word Nyong’o wrong until one lady of Nigerian origin got it right and walked away with a tidy $1280.
