Lupita Nyong’o’s Sulwe comes home

Sulwe, a children book by Lupita is finally available for purchase in Kenya

Sulwe ,unveiled by the Academy Award winner back in 2019 is finally home. The book is Lupita’s answer to colourism. Through this book, she seeks to inspire and encourage other girls, specifically children, who feel less than beautiful because they don’t resemble the people they watch on TV or see in magazines. 

Announcing the news of the book’s arrival in Kenya, she wrote “Sulwe is coming home! You can now find editions in Kenya in English, Swahili & my mother tongue, Luo. My childhood inspired story. I hope its message can travel the world for readers of all ages, but it’s especially meaningful to bring it home!”

Kenyan book publishers also took to Twitter to announce and introduce the East Africa edition of the children’s book.

The book is currently available for purchase at Textbook centre and Bunk Books.
