Lupita Nyongo

The award-winning actress is among the first Kenyan celebrity to have a verified Instagram account and currently tops the list with a 9million following. She rose to stardom after winning an Oscar for Twelve Years a Slave, and as her star in Hollywood rises, the more people become hungry for more information about her; lifestyle, fashion sense, and friends, thus the increasing numbers on social media.
