Every thing About Lupita Nyong’o’s Boyfriend, Selema Masekela

On Friday, Lupita Nyong’o and Selema Masekela went Instagram official with an lovable declaration of their love. The Black Panther star and the TV host shared a group of clips during which they’re snapping in unison while their outfits change to the song “The King’s Affirmation (Chill Mix)” by Iniko, featuring Reuel Williams.

“We just click!” Nyong’o wrote within the caption, tagging Masekela, adding the hashtags #thisismylove #nuffsaid.

He shared the identical reel on his page, captioning it, “Hearts are synched. My whole and actual love @lupitanyongo. #outkickedthecoverage.”

Here’s all the pieces we find out about Nyong’o’s recent partner.

Who’s Selema Masekela?

Masekela is from Latest York, and he’s the son of famous South African jazz musician Hugh Masekela. The TV host mostly covers sports, and has reported on the Winter X Games for ESPN and the Summer Olympics for NBC. He’s also done some acting and singing in his entertainment profession.

How long have they been together?

They have not yet shared how they met or when, but Masekela has been vocal about his interest within the actress since 2016.

“Hypothetically speaking in fact…let’s say you’re seated behind Lupita Nyong’o on an airplane, what can be your opening line?” Masekela tweeted that April. “Anyone comes up with an excellent opener for me with Lupita Nyong’o, send em. Cause I’m really sittin’ right behind her on this flight. #stumped.”

He eventually retweeted the suggestion, “Say hello, wait for her to reply. Tell her [your] dad shouted her out at a performance & freestyle from there.”

Masekela responded, “Yes!!! Well played. I’ll use this one. #playthedadcard @Lupita_Nyongo.”

So, perhaps they introduced themselves.

Who else has Nyong’o been connected to romantically?

In March of 2014, Us Weekly reported that Nyong’o was dating Somali-born rapper K’naan. They split a 12 months later, and the actress went on up to now fashion editor Mobolaji Dawodu. There have been also unconfirmed rumors she had a relationship with actor Jared Leto.

“He’s still on speed dial because we were on that [Oscar campaign] journey together and he’s so embracing of me,” she told Net-a-Porter in March 2019. “There was an intimacy that grew from that, that goes beyond the dating rumors, beyond all that.”

Nyong’o has also denied dating rumors about herself and Michael B. Jordan, and told Vogue UK in December 2019 that “privacy is a commodity that is difficult to come back by.”

“Filming is so time-consuming. And intense,” she said. “With Black Panther, loads of us were single. On Little Monsters, no one was single.”

She added, “Everyone — after they’re done with their day’s work — desires to go home to their families, which makes an entire lot of sense. Once you don’t have that, it’s very isolating.”
