Sexually explicit photos of Hollywood's Kenyan actress Lupita Nyong'o before she took over Hollywood have been released to media and have gone viral.
Now before you start judging her, these photos were taken for a good cause.
One of the biggest roles she played before her big international debut, was that of a young promiscuous lady named 'Anyira' in a Kenyan Sex-education series dubbed 'Shuga'.
She was dating two men in the series, that aired about 5 years ago courtesy of MTV Base. As Anyira, she ends up in danger, fearing she may have contracted the HIV virus.
The show was a major hit in Africa receiving acclamation even internationally.
In 2010, Lupita was interviewed regarding the series and this is what she had to say,"I think one thing [Shuga] is trying to do is talk about how HIV and AIDS is not a death sentence.[HIV] is a condition that can be managed, if one chooses to do so, if one catches it early on you can live a healthy life with HIV. I’ve been able to be an ambassador for HIV and AIDS."
At that point in time, that was a major role and nationwide, newspapers were all the rave about Lupita. She has now gone to even higher heights.
