Kenyan business mogul Chris Kirubi has said celebrated actress Lupita Nyongo is wealthier than he is, something he commends her for.
This he revealed during an interview on the weekly TV show Churchill.
‘LUPITA NYONGO’S PARENTS ARE MY GOOD FRIENDS.
HE IS A GENTLEMAN. LUPITA IS A GREAT WOMAN.
I WISH HER MORE LUCK, SHE IS EVEN MORE WEALTHIER AND MORE FAMOUS THAN I AM .
MAYBE IF I HAD GONE INTO THE FILM INDUSTRY I WOULD HAVE COMPETED WITH HER, BUT WE CAN’T BE EVERY WHERE.’
Lupita is best known for her role ’12 Years a Slave’ and ‘Black Panther’.
She has however acted in so many films. She is also an Oscar award winner.
Lupita is daughter to Kisumu governor Anyang Nyong’o and Dorothy Nyong’o.
Chris Kirubi chairs the following companies:
(1) DHL Express Kenya Limited,
(2) Haco Industries Kenya Limited,
(3) Kiruma International Limited, (4) International House Limited.
(5) Nairobi Bottlers Limited.
(6) Sandvik East Africa Limited and Capital FM.
He is also non-executive director of (8) Bayer East Africa Limited, (9) UAP Provincial Insurance Company Limited and (10) Beverage Services of Kenya Limited.
According to an article by Business Today Kirubi is worth around 40 billion.
That goes to tell you that if Kirubi feels that Lupita Nyongo is wealthier than him then she might be in the billionaires club (which I highly doubt).
