Lupita Nyong'o is Kenya's biggest success story as far as entertainment goes.

The famous daughter of Kisumu governor, Anyang' Nyong'o became a worldwide phenom after her break-out performance in "12 years a slave", that also won her an Oscar award.

Since then, the dark-skinned beauty has become a fashion icon and trendsetter in all things style, constantly making it onto Hollywood best-dressed lists.

As such any small change in her appearance will elicit either praise or scrutiny from her fans and neautrals alike.

This week the "Black Panther" actress debuted a new hairstyle that has got her fans in a tizzy. Her new hairstyle is a dark-brown weave(or is it human hair?) with curls flowing over her beautiful face.

Let's not forget that Lupita is a fan of wearing her natural hair and is best known for sporting short cuts most of the time.

A change is as good as a rest they say and I think the Hollywood star wanted to don something different on her head.

Her caption read, "Yes, it's my hair - I bought it! #Hairxperimentation."

And what did her fans and followers think?

We’re so lucky that we get to play with our range! 

It's the caption for me

We love you Lupita!

Exactly it’s yours!!

Would you like to go out with me tomorrow night


I just gasped . So lovely!

Love her and she’s right it’s her hair she bought it but that hair is not for her


I like it, but I like your natural hair better.

It looks so good on you

You're beautiful
