Popular Kenyan actress, Lupita Nyongo, has announced the breakup of her relationship with TV host, Selema Masekela.
The actress made this known on her Instagram account, revealed that she’s experiencing a season of heartbreak due to a love that was abruptly and painfully extinguished by deceit.
It was gathered that Lupita has removed all the photos of Selema from her social media, including a heartfelt birthday post she shared in August.
She wrote: “There are much more important things going on in the world right now, and my thoughts are with those who are deeply suffering.
“At this moment, it is necessary for me to share a personal truth and publicly dissociate myself from someone I can no longer trust.
“I find myself in a season of heartbreak because of a love suddenly and devastatingly extinguished by deception. I am tempted to run into the shadows and hide, only to return to the light when I have regained my strength enough for me to say, Whatever, my life is better this way.
“But I am reminded that the magnitude of the pain I am feeling is equal to the measure of my capacity for love. And so, I am choosing to face the pain, cultivating the courage to meet my life exactly as it is, and trusting that this, too shall pass. The promise, they say, is that a tender heart is what gives birth to fearlessness. I hope it’s true… I share this to keep it 100, and hoping that the knowledge of my experience might be useful to someone else out there experiencing the grip of heartbreak who is poised to try and escape from the pain and miss out on the wisdom that comes from it.”
