Beyoncé Is Reportedly the Top Choice to Voice Nala in the Lion King Live-Action Remake


TheLion King live-action reboot might be getting just a little more flawless.

According to Variety, Beyoncé is reportedly the top choice for director Jon Favreau for the role of Nala. The film has already secured Atlanta star Donald Glover to voice Simba, while James Earl Jones will reprise his role as Simba’s father, Mufasa. Favreau helmed the recent live-action remake of The Jungle Book; The Lion King will follow a similar style with realistic animated animals.

Queen Bey, who’s currently pregnant with twins, has reportedly not made a decision yet about whether or not she’ll take the role.

Hundreds of schoolchildren are missing after Boko Haram’s largest-ever mass kidnapping, reports say

Hundreds of children remain missing while officials refuse to acknowledge the largest-ever mass abduction of Nigerian schoolchildren by Boko Haram Islamic extremists, Human Rights Watch said Thursday.

Boko Haram kidnapped hundreds of children in the northeastern town of Damasak on Nov. 24, 2014, the New York-based organization said in a dispatch from researcher Mausi Segun.

She quoted traditional leaders as saying they submitted a list of 501 missing children to police and local government officials in April 2015, when the town was briefly freed from Boko Haram, but have never received a response.

International outrage met the separate April 2014 abduction of 276 girls from a school in Chibok. Dozens escaped early on and Nigeria’s government last year negotiated the release of 21. More than 200 Chibok schoolgirls remain missing.

But there has been no word about the children of Damasak. Nigerian officials in the past have not responded…

Abuja ? A Gudu Upper Area Court, Abuja, has sentenced a 49-year-old man, Ibrahim Jibril to six weeks imprisonment for stealing a purse.

Jibril of no fixed address pleaded guilty and was subsequently convicted on a two-count charge of criminal trespass and theft levelled against him.

The judge, Mr Umar Kagarko, however, gave the convict an option of N6,000 fine.

In life you can’t grow unless you step outside your comfort zone – it’s that simple. Nobody became great by laying around and doing nothing. Whenever we decide to face our fears and worries – that’s when we progress! We are not the social status, physic or intellect we receive in the day we are born, we are the decisions we take in the present moment. Do you want to know why there are so many people who talk about their dreams and end up with the eloquently said words imprisoned in their mouth? Because they never get to follow their instinct,they are afraid of the world and the troubles it may present. They find comfort in staying in the same place their entire…

A casement of magical spirit shinning
Through the tenement so rugged and free
Find a family in kindred spirits abiding
Wafting together through desert and sea
Free-styled soul, beautified so wholly
Scenting the serene vicinity
In the midst of foul scamps and unholy
The sacredness in sanctity
Such damp, dour and dreary members
Are garbed in sweetness of songs
For all are saints not short of fallen glory
Each holds the tendrils of the other
Sharing such sweet songs, story
Of peace painted in pure order
Worthy of worth and winners
