MTV to celebrate Lupita Nyong’o on Oscar win

MTV Base is celebrating the Oscar success of Kenyan actress Lupita Nyong’o after her triumph in the Best Supporting Actress category at the 86th annual Academy Awards.
The Kenyan actress, who won her Oscar for her part of Patsey in the movie “12 Years a Slave”, had her first professional acting role in a HIV and AIDS awareness drama, Shuga.
Shot in Kenya by MTV Base and the MTV Staying Alive Foundation, Shuga starred Nyong’o in the role of Ayira, a confident and vivacious Nairobi college student who is forced to come to terms with the consequences of her reckless lifestyle.

Alex Okosi, Senior Vice President & Managing Director, Viacom International Media Networks (VIMN) Africa, said “as a brand that has dedicated itself to promoting and pushing African talent both in Africa and internationally, MTV Base is delighted that Lupita is enjoying such success and critical acclaim. Her win provides young Africans with an inspiring role model who shows them that anything and everything is possible.”
