Lupita Nyongo Boyfriend: Lupita Nyong’o is making a stylish entrance with her beau. The 39-year-old Oscar-winning actress announced her romance with TV anchor and sportscaster Selema Masekela by joining a popular Instagram trend.
“We click! @selema #thisismylove #nuffsaid,” Nyong’o captioned the post.
As they switch between the clothing in the amusing reel, the two snap their fingers together to the rhythm of “The King’s Affirmation” by Iniko and Reuel Williams. The pair first dons matching blue and white robes and fluffy slippers before changing into corresponding purple bikinis with cheetah prints.
With their subsequent outfits, the duo amplifies the glitter. The two decide on a light blue and yellow look, with Masekela donning a matching yellow suit and Nyong’o donning a long evening gown with pineapple motifs. The next outfit features Nyong’o in a black dress with orange motifs and a matching headpiece, and her partner is dressed in an orange suit with black trimming and black sunglasses.
The couple closes the clip in their final outfits: Masekela in a black suit and an orange undershirt, Nyong’o in a sparkly orange dress with pink rose- or Camellia-flower-like detailing. At the video’s conclusion, the two momentarily buck the pattern and begin free dancing.
Although the Black Panther: Wakanda Forever actress has kept her love life private, she has previously sparked romance rumors with her co-star Michael B. Jordan. At the InStyle & Warner Bros. Golden Globes afterparty in 2019, the couple staged a makeout session in a photo booth, but neither admitted to dating at the time.
“It’s flattering at the end of the day,” Nyong’o explained to Entertainment Tonight. “I think it’s such a rare thing to find people you have good chemistry with, and too for us to find each other as actors and get to work together, it makes the work richer that we truly enjoy each other’s company on and off the screen.”
After growing close to Jared Leto during the 2014 awards season, there were rumors that she was also dating him. However, Nyong’o made it clear that they are only close friends.

“Jared Leto, he’s still on speed dial because we were on that [Oscar campaign] journey together and he’s so embracing of me,” the actress said in 2019. “There was an intimacy that grew from that, beyond the dating rumors, beyond all that.”
“Privacy is a commodity that is hard to come by,” she said, explaining why she was reluctant to comment on her personal life to Vogue U.K. in 2019.
“Filming is so time-consuming. And intense,” She went on. “Many of us had Black Panther while we were all single. Nobody was single on the show Little Monsters. Everyone wants to return home to their families after a long day of work, which makes perfect sense. Lack of that makes you feel quite alone.” Keep yourself updated with all the latest news from our website Newswatchlist.com and get all the recent updates.
