In a brief Facebook post, a star struck Trevor said it was an honour for him to be the one to present the mother-daughter duo with the HSA award.

Without masking his joy, the South African born TV host said he views himself as the actress's best friend and that is not something anyone can take away from him.

The Visionary Lineage Award was presented to the two humanitarians on Monday, October 21, during a highly packed, star studded event.

The Twelve Years a Slave star's father Governor Anyang' Nyong'o said the win would announce to the world that Kenya is a cradle of history makers.

As earlier reported, the Kisumu governor said Lupita's win which followed legendary marathoner Eliud Kipchoge's homecoming was a step in the right direction for the country.

"This award, coming just days after the back from the moon, jaw-dropping No Human is Limited Ineos achievement by the history-making Eliud Kipchoge, underscores Kenya’s position as the home of history makers in Africa in the fields of performing arts and sports," said Nyong'o.

Lupita's mum is currently the Managing Trustee of the Africa Cancer Foundation and Director of the 7th Sense Communication Limited.

She has participated and organised several conferences around the world to sensitize people on ways to overcome cancer menace.
