Two people we never thought could be paired together are rapper Common and actress Lupita Nyong’o but according to a few eye-witnesses the two stars were spotted on a date on Tuesday as they went from a dinner date to a movie date and then to a bar.

They were spotted by fans who took to Twitter to share their excitement.

While it did not cross our minds before, we can totally see Common and Lupita being the new ‘It’ couple in Hollywood.

Common has been linked with Tennis Pro Serena Williams in the past while Lupita has been linked with another rapper, Knaan.

What do you think? Will they make a striking couple?

In terms of things they have in common (no pun intended), they are both Oscar Winners and they share the same stylist, Micaela.

    One of the few successful black men in Hollywood who actually date black women. Not those hypocrites who are always yapping about racism while holding the hands of their white wives. No big deal about marrying from any race but for many black men in Hollywood it’s a sell out. The while media will feature you more if you have a white woman on your hands case in point John Legend.

      Oh please! People should be allowed to date whoever they want to date. It’s called preferences. Its just like most women preferring to be with tall, dark and handsome men and they don’t get flack for their preferences.

      Why would you call someone a fool because of an opinion stated which is very true?????? You might want to get a mental check up !

    Ha! Ha!! Bella Naija, it looks like you took poison ivy’s advise, which was posted on the Chika Ike tennis post and you skedaddled to necole bitchie for this.

    Anyway, I don’t think they are dating. It was just a date. There will always be speculation with any guy she’s seen out with.

    Chai! Common was in my zones last week and I didn’t know! I could have met him and we would have finally hit it off…now this?!! I will proceed to go stab myself in the thigh with a pen now….thank you.

      Nne, it’s like the universe knew that you’d kidnap him if given half a chance, and thus kept you safely out of the know.

      I kid, I kid. 😀 Common is also one of my “real FYNE brotha” crushes so I share your angst. However, I love Lupita so ridiculously that I’ll gladly give him up so they can make cute, intelligent, afro-conscious choco babies together…

    • Carliforniabawlar

      March 12, 2015 at 9:42 pm

      hehehe! I for kidnap am pass!! He came to give a talk and was meeting everyone one on one….na otumokpo I for put for my hand…fiam!! inside my room…lols. I’m with you on giving him up for Lupita sha…the babies they will make will be out of this world!

    Common is 40+, Luppy is a young chick.. Common has a habit of dating Nubian sisters, unfortunately it never lasts.

      And so what, age don’t marra okay, Lupi is 32 she’s a grown woman and can make her own decisions.

    I find it difficult to comprehend that people can call other people who date or marry outside their race sell out.. Biko, what are you selling? Relationship shouldnt be about colour or race.. Dont box yourself up it’s 2015 – this is how Selma, the butler, 12 years a slave, a walk to freedom, biafra and all the struggles started o!

    Dont grow up to be parents whose kids must only marry from their tribe or race..

  25. Noooooooo

    March 12, 2015 at 6:08 pm

    Common, please don’t go there! You have a history of dating successful strong black women with acclaim and then dump them after you’ve caught them. Seems like a game of chess for you (bad habit) so please don’t waste my Lupita’s time. Go and holler at your regular African American women. #dontspoilagoodthing #hiss
