The 12 Years a Slave actress and Oscar winner Lupita Nyong'o has been hailed a positive role model for black girls by a fan.

Kenyan actress and Oscar winner Lupita Nyong'o revealed she received a letter from a fan who thanked her for the positive influence the Hollywood newcomer had on her.

Nyong'o read part of the letter out during a speech she gave at Essence magazine luncheon in Hollywood: "Dear Lupita, I think you're really lucky to be this Black but yet this successful in Hollywood overnight.



"I was just about to buy [Cameroonian pop star] Dencia's Whitenicious cream to lighten my skin when you appeared on the world map and saved me."

Dencia - who has been strongly criticised for promoting skin whitening cream Whitenicious - did not like the comments and took to Twitter.

"Every year the Oscars use 1 black scape goat 2 fool blacks 2 support them, this is ur year" she wrote in one tweet.
