Oscar-winner Lupita Nyong’o celebrated her 34th birthday party with Danai Gurira, the Zimbabwean/American actress in The Walking Dead and author of the Tony Award-winning Eclipsed.
The party theme was Coming to America and Lupita posted some pics under the hashtag #WakandansInZamunda. Wakanda is the imaginary African nation in the Marvel series The Avengers (and it’ll be where Black Panther is set). Eddie Murphy plays Prince Akeem Joffer, the prince of Zamunda, in the classic Coming to America.

Imani Izzy could have been his queen. Remember that song: 'Free from infection, to be used at your discretion...'
