Enwongo Cleopas: I will pronounce your name —Lupita Nyong’o

While trying to scale over my Facebook fence today, I saw this wonderful post from my friend, Enwongo Cleopas: “I will pronounce your name —Lupita Nyong’o”. So I decided to share it with you. Read and tell me what you think.

I will pronounce your name —Lupita Nyong’o

I never heard about this name until last year.
I was curious to find out about this name.
And then I watched “12 years A Slave” and instantly appreciated it so much. (The same way I did with the movie “The Help”)
I appreciated Lupita’s touching role.
I read about her a little bit more.

And in a space of four (4) months this name is speedingly becoming One that my children will reckon with as a force in History.
I am not obsessed with this name.
But I cannot help but smile whenever I hear it pronounced.
I have this intense pride about this name.
This name encourages and motivates me in a way I cannot explain.
And I glad that I am in the generation that birthed this Great Lady ‘Lupita Nyong’o.
And I am grateful to God for this Wonderful creation of His.
I will pronounce your name, again and again.
