American singer and actor Tyrese of the Why you gotta act like that fame has surprised many Ugandans when he shared a photo of a Ugandan model, Ayak Veronica on his social media.
Tyrese, who had watched the Marvel Blockbluster film, Black Panther for the second time, could not hold his excitement as he felt more ‘black’ than ever.
He captioned the picture, “#OurBlackIsBeatiful went to watch #BlackPanther again last night to contribute to it being #1 again and I can’t tell you how proud I am of that epic level of #AfricanPride I’ve been doing movies for a while now and they always said movies with black leads don’t do well overseas other than one of my heroes Will Smith’s films at the time… This is a great time and space in Hollywood cause everything is changing…I repeat…everything.”
The picture he shared was from The KONA Campaign and shot by fashion photographer Guilio Molfese
Ayak is a 15-Year-Old student who was discovered from the first Ultimate Model Search scouting tour by Joram Muzira Model Management and is arguably one of the faces to watch out for in the modelling industry.
Tyrese has featured in movies like Fast and Furious and Transformers.
