South Africans angry with Trevor Noah for choosing Lupita Nyong’O for upcoming “Born A Crime” biopic

Earlier yesterday, we announced that Oscar award winning actress, Lupita Nyong’o announced that South African comedian, Trevor Noah, has chosen her to star as his mother in his biopic, Born a Crime. Well, it appears this news isn’t sitting well with many South Africans who believe that a local actor should play the role although fans of Lupita are pleased.
Noah will be producing the project through his Ark Angel Productions, and he will be working alongside Norman Aladjem, Derek Van Pelt and Sanaz Yamin of Mainstay Entertainment.

Born a Crime tells the story of Noah in post-apartheid South Africa, the son of a white father and black mother, and his struggles fitting into a dysfunctional and religious community.
