Oscar winner and global superstar Lupita Nyong’o has taken to social media to celebrate a special man in her life

Lupita Nyong’o on Thursday morning took to social media to celebrate Saheem Ali, a director, confidant, travel buddy and ideal snuggle buddy. The usually reserved star wrote;

“I met Saheem Ali 24 years ago and with each passing year, I love him more and more. Today is his birthday, and I am belting out a song of gratitude that we get to share our lives and our talents together. When I was 14 he was Mercutio to my Juliet. Now, 24 years later, we are back at it again with him as my director in #RomeoYJulieta.”
