Bad boys are very hard to resist…
He was apparently seen by the 12 Years A Slave actress' side after her big win on Sunday, and was spotted on her Instagram account in the (above) snap taken at the start of award season about 3 months ago.
Keinan Warsame (that's his real name) was born in Somalia but fled to Canada in the early '90s, where he lived in a rough Toronto neighborhood, falling into a gang.
Did we fail to mention he was arrested more than 12 times in his teens?!
Luckily, since becoming a successful rapper, K'naan cleaned up his act quite a bit - practicing the Muslim religion, and he doesn't even drink or smoke anymore!
Maybe this *REFORMED* bad boy is just what Miz Nyong'o needs right now…
We'll be on the hardcore lookout for more sightings of these two!
