In this recession, someone was dashing people money to get the correct spelling of Lupita Nyongo’s name.

Calm down, it’s not in Nigeria. On the ‘Spellbrity’ segment of Jimmy Kimmel’s show, the TV crew members took to the streets and challenged Americans to spell Lupita’s name for a prize which doubled every time someone spelled it wrongly.

All the Oyinbo people failed it o!

But because Nigerians are efikos and don’t like wasting school fees, a Nigerian woman finally won $1280 (N403,000) for spelling it right. She even added the correct apostrophe.

But we need to ask whose daddy was jumping up and down at the end of the video? We love him sha!
