Nyong’o debuted her rapping alter ego “TROUBLEMAKER” in an Instagram video posted Sunday.
“Mexican born, Kenya running through my veins/ Dark chocolate, plus I keep a sharp mane,” the 12 Years a Slave actress rapped. “Lancôme fresh-faced, looking tailor-made/Disney on the books, so you know I stay paid.”
“Next stop Katwe, rocking out with David/ Don’t do critics if you’re hating please save it,” Nyong’o continued. “Ambassador for elephants trying to save the planet/I’m working on my master plan stunting in a hammock.”
Nyongo completed her rap – which was written by lyricist Robyn Hood/Miriam A. Hyman – with “Shout out to the villagers, hit 3 million!”
Earlier this month, Nyong’o admitted that while she’s been making a name for herself in Hollywood as an actress, she’s still chasing the dream of being a rap star.
“I’m secretly a rapper. It’s so secret I don’t even know it,” Nyong’o told Entertainment Tonight at the Toronto International Film Festival. “I fantasize about being a rapper all the time.”
Nyong’o’s new movie with David Oyelowo, Queen Katwe, is currently in theaters.
