The 12 Years a Slave actress Lupita Nyong’o only has eyes for one man these days – and it’s definitely not Jared Leto.

The Oscar-winning actress has apparently had a boyfriend for six months, rapper K’Naan, according to American celebrity magazine US Weekly. K’Naan (36) is the rapper behind Wavin’ Flag, the theme song for the 2010  Soccer World Cup in South Africa.

The beautiful Lupita (31) appears to be head-over-heels. She’s especially impressed with K’Naan’s humanitarianism and the couple are said to both be ‘‘passionate about African issues.’’. K’Naan was born in Somalia. Lupita’s parents are Kenyan. She was born in Mexico, but grew up in Kenya.

It’s not the first time there have been rumours about the two. Shortly after Lupita had received her Oscar statuette for best actress in a supporting role, they were photographed together leaving a TV studio in New York, where Lupita had been interviewed.

They looked extremely loving and K’Naan was holding Lupita’s Oscar as they walked arm in arm. They apparently live in New York. But they’re taking things slowly, a friend says.

Rumour has it Lupita, who has never been married, still hasn’t met K’Naan’s two sons from his ex-wife, Deqa Warsame. Lupita’s  agent understandably refuses to comment on the actress’ private life. Come on, Lupita, fill us in . . .
