'Tis the season' for Lupita Nyong'o?

Seems love is in the air for actress Lupita Ny'ongo and she is not afraid to show it. On December 23, the Oscar's award winning actress put up a seemingly romantic video of her and her beau dancing to “the King’s Affirmation – Chill Mix” by Iniko. While it is not known how long the two have been together, the comment section on her Instagram post has been buzzing since her announcement with over 8,000 comments, 600 likes and over a million views. The caption on the post reads, "We just click @Selema #thisismylove #nuffsaid," Lupita said in her caption. The man in the post, Selema Masekela, is the son of the late Hugh Masekela who was also know as the father of South African jazz". He is an American show host based in the United States. He is also a professional musician and professionally goes by the name Sal Masekela. In an interesting tweet that he put out in 2016 that has now resurfaced, he said "Hypothetically speaking of course...let's say you're seated behind Lupita Nyong'o on an airplane, what would be your opening line?" He put out another tweet asking folks to help him come with a good opener. "Anyone comes up with a good opener for me with Lupita Nyong'o, send em. Cause i'm really sittin' right behind her on this flight. #stumped"   The Black Panther star dated Somali-born Canadian poet and musician, K'Naan in 2013 before parting ways a year later.
