Kenyan actress Lupita Nyong’o just turned 37.

The Hollywood hotshot, who is currently in Nigeria shooting Americanah, turned a year older on Sunday, March 1, and celebrated her birthday like a true queen.

The Award-winning actress was in the company of Naija artist D’banj and celebrated writer Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie as they partied the night away.

Lupita stepped out in a tiny, print decorated dress as the trio sang and danced through the night.

Americanah is a 2013 novel by the Nigerian author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, for which Adichie won the 2013 National Book Critics Circle Fiction award.

Americanah tells the story of a young Nigerian woman, Ifemelu, who immigrates to the United States to attend university.

The novel traces Ifemelu’s life in both countries, threaded by her love story with high school classmate Obinze.
