There's Actually A Wrong Way To Do The 'Wakanda Salute'

Don't get caught slippin. 

The Wakanda salute is simple to understand but Black Panther star Daniel Kaluuya offered a simple tip to Tiffany Haddish to make sure hers was just right.

The adorable moment happened during the Oscars red carpet Sunday (Mar. 4) when the funny lady interrupted ABC host Michael Strahan's interview with the Best Actor nominee. While dressed in her Eritrea-themed gown, Haddish stepped on the platform greeting the guys with, "The Princess of Eritrea has arrived." It was a quick flip on the Black Panther line ("The Prince of T'Challa has arrived"), which went over Strahan's head.

Kaluuya welcomed the moment with a smile as Haddish did battle move from the film. The actor, who plays W'Kabi, the head of security of Wakanda's Border Tribe, showed the actress how to properly do the Wakanda salute.

"It's right over left, right over left," Kaluuya said.

The cast has enjoyed exchanging the salute. Chadwick Boseman did the move at the Spirit Awards while presented the award for Best Feature to Jordan Peele and Kaluuya for Get Out.

Check out both moments and the Black Panther cast's spin on the Wakanda salute below.

Kylie Jenner Doubles Down On Being Crowned A "Self Made" Billionaire

The premise of "self-made" and its interpretation when it comes to privileged celebrities has been a huge debate. When Kylie Jenner was named Forbes' youngest self-made billionaire, debates were raised due to her timeline in the limelight and her wealthy family. The 21-year-old defended her title, explaining how she doesn't fall into any ofter category.

"There’s really no other word to use other than self-made because that is the truth," she said in Q&A with Interview Magazine's German edition. "That is the category that I fall under," she started.

She acknowledged how her fan base equated to her success but refuted claims that she used her family's money to jump-start her wildly successful Kylie Cosmetics line.

"Although, I am a special case because before I started Kylie Cosmetics, I had a huge platform and lots of fans. I did not get money from my parents past the age of 15. I used 100 percent of my own money to start the company, not a dime in my bank account is inherited… and I am very proud of that."

Earlier this month (March 5) the mother-of-one officially surpassed Mark Zuckerberg as the youngest person to reach billionaire status, when Kylie Cosmetics hit a billion dollars in revenue.
