Ugandans online have cheered British actor Daniel Kaluuya, who is of Ugandan origin, after he won an Oscar.
Mr Kaluuya won Best Supporting Actor for his role in Judas and the Black Messiah.
In his speech he thanked all his fans from London and Kampala.
His Ugandan mother, who was in the audience, was also credited for her contribution in his career.
Mr Kaluuya’s final words of how incredible it was that his parents had sex and had him made his mother and sister blush:
I feel like Daniel Kaluuya did this is for all the kids whose Mom publicly embarrassed them at some point. That said, based on Moms reaction .. Daniel might wanna go pick a switch before he comes back to the table 😂
