Oscar-winning actress and Black Panther star Lupita Nyong’o is the latest celebrity that fans have taken ownership of in terms of whether they approve of their significant other.

Not long after Nyong’o’s new boyfriend, South African native Selema “Sal” Masekela, made their romance Instagram official, folks naturally weighed in on her choice of companionship — and not all of them were favorable. 

The pairing seems natural on the surface. Nyong’o is a world-famous actress who won a Best Actress Academy Award for her performance in 12 Years a Slave.

Masekela’s lineage is also entertainment-based. He is the son of South African jazz artist Hugh Masekela. He reportedly works as a sports commentator and TV host and covered the Olympic Games and NBA games in the early 2000s.

In the announcement of their relationship on Instagram, the two created a beautiful video montage of synchronized movements that crystallizes their chemistry and bond.

However, some Black Twitter users were brutal in their assessment of Nyong’o’s boyfriend’s countenance, as if this singular physical attribute is all that is required to earn courtship with the stunning cocoa-coated cutie.
