On a television interview with NTV’s Larry Madowo, Award winning actress Lupita Nyong’o revealed that she could not cook Ugali for the life of her. Interestingly, this is her homeland’s staple food and one of the deal breakers when dating a Luo man. The actress confessed that she just can’t get the right combination of maize flour and hot water. Despite her inability to cook this dish Lupita misses Ugali a lot when she is out winning and dinning in Hollywood with her fellow celebrities.
