Black Panther actress Lupita Nyong’o is on the spotlight after accepting an ambassadorial deal with De Beers Group – an international corporation that specializes in diamond mining, diamond exploitation, diamond retail, diamond trading and industrial diamond manufacturing sectors.
According to critics, Lupita should have declined the role because she is a Kenyan native, an African & the company has been in the limelight in the past for exploiting Africans.
Activist Bonface Mwangi, in a Tweet has said that the partnership “has disturbed him deeply”.
