Kerry Washington who sent down the birthday wish through her Twitter handle, tweeted:

…translating to “Happy birthday. Thanks be to God

Replying her, excited Uzo Aduba tweeted:

Heh! Nwannem nwanyi, i na asu Igbo??!? Maka o di mma! Nwanne, daalu maka ubochi omumu m.

…translating to “eh! Dear sister, you speak Igbo??!? For he (Nnamdi) is good! Brother, thank you for my birthday.

Washington is married to Nnamdi Asomugha, a Nigerian American actor, producer and former American football cornerback who got drafted in the first round of the 2003 NFL Draft by the Oakland Raiders.
