Kenyan actor Lupita Nyong’o and American singer, Janelle Monae, on Tuesday made headlines when a video of them dancing to ‘I Got The Juice’ surfaced and circulated on social media.
Janelle was making a stop for her Dirty Computer tour at London’s SSE Wembley Arena and surprised the audience by announcing the arrival of her “queen” and special guest Nyong’o, right before bringing her to the stage.
The Academy Award-winning actor twerked with Janelle while the singer was spanking her as the Us actor turned and dry humped the singer.

In the videos and images shared online, Lupita and Janelle are seen dancing together during an event dubbed Met Gala 2019, an annual fundraiser in support of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute in New York.
