We all love him and up till recently, we thought he could no wrong. And we can’t be blamed. Daniel Kaluuya has given Ugandans hope that they can also make it in Hollywood.
The Ugandan British born actor has starred in major Hollywood films like Get Out before also scoring one of the major roles in the Marvel blockbuster film, Black Panther.
When he showed up at the premiere of Black Panther in a Kanzu, a traditional outfit for some tribes in Uganda, we could not be more proud. However, Kaluuya seems to have let go of his fashion adviser or stylist as his latest choice of outfit to this year’s Met Gala has raised a few eye brows.
For the first time he has suffered criticism for choosing an ill-fitting suit at Hollywood’s biggest fashion event, The Met Gala. Now that is an event that all celebs dress to impress.
Kaluuya, who seems to have gained some more weight since the filming of Black Panther, played it safe in a grey Prada suit but fans were not impressed and immediately bashed him on social media.
Here are some of the reactions.
Barack Baraka: Looks like a Ugandan politician in the 70’s.
