Best birthday ever!

Lupita Nyong'o and her Black Panther co-sta, Danai Gurira, threw a joint birthdayo ver the weekend in honor of their 34th and 39th big days respectively, and the theme to mark the occasion was Coming to America -- Eddie Murphy's instant classic 1988 comedy!

"We love #ComingToAmerica this much! Joint birthday party shenanigans with @danaigurira @kaluuya. #WakandansInZamunda," Nyong'o wrote on Instagram, "Wakandans" of course being a reference to the fictional African nation in Marvel lore.
