Lupita Nyong'O Crowned 2014's Most Beautiful Woman In The World

People Magazine has officially crowned Oscar winner Lupita Nyong'O as 2014's Most Beautiful Woman In The World and I bet not too many people would disagree!

Lupita may have just signed a lucrative contract with Lancome Paris but she "never dreamed" she would be touted as "Most Beautiful" for the entire world to see, according to People.

The actress immediately took to Twitter to express her happiness:

"It was exciting and just a major, major compliment," the 31-year-old says of gracing this year's cover. And especially, I was happy for all the girls who would see me on [it] and feel a little more seen."

Lupita took home the Oscar this year for Best Female Supporting Actress for her role in Steve McQueen's 12 Years A Slave. During her acceptance speech she moved the crowed and offered inspiration to any young woman who aspires to go where she has gone in her career. 

«"When I look down at this golden statue, may it remind me, and every little child that no matter where you are from your dreams are valid."

Also of note is her famous skin colour speech at this year's Essence Black Women in Hollywood Luncheon where she confessed how 'she prayed for God to change her skin color to white every night before going to bed'.

Well, guess girlfriend needs no skin-color-prayer-change right now because "she's beautiful just the way she is."

Do you guys agree with People Magazine about Lupita Nyong'O??

Nursing Students Protest Imposition of Principal

Students of the Edo State School of Nursing protested alleged imposition of a principal in the school, non‑accreditation of the school in the last two years and insufficient teachers in the state-owned institution.

The students marched to the state Government House, the Edo State House of Assembly complex and the state secretariat of the Nigeria Union of Journalists, Benin City.

The Vice President, Students Union Government (SUG) of the school, Marris Osadolor, said: "What we want now is how to get our accreditation and not changing principals from school to school. Until government restores our accreditation and gives us a new principal, the school will not open and that is the reason we are protesting."

An official who pleaded anonymity explained that the principal was sent there in acting capacity because their substantive principal retired few days ago and with time, a substantive principal will be appointed.

He also explained that the non- accreditation of the school does not affect the old students, but that the school suspended admission of new intakes while those already there would complete their programme.

Beyoncé and Jay Z to Relocate to London

Beyoncé and Jay Z are allegedly moving to London!

The Drunk In Love couple have purchased a huge £5.5million townhouse in the capital after hunting for a property in Mayfair and the Cotswolds.

The tabloid claims that they finally settled on a detached pad in West London, and are thought to have exchanged on the house four weeks ago.

A source revealed: "Both Jay and Beyoncé are Anglophiles and have been toying with the idea of getting a pad for a couple of years now.

"On previous trips, they have stayed in five star hotels and, on one occasion, a rented mansion. While money isn't an issue, it makes sense for them to have a more permanent base and get to know one particular area."

Fuelling reports of a joint Mr and Mrs Carter UK tour, the insider added: "They are coming to England this year and touring before the year is out."

The newspaper adds that Queen B and Jigga's new home is close to a number of top primary schools for two-year old daughter Blue Ivy if they decided to make the move more permanent.

Former Eagles' Player is Dead

Nigerian soccer icon, Albert Onyeawuna has been reported dead at aged 78 years.
Seasoned sports journalist, Kayode Tijani, who broke the news, said: "Albert Onyeawuna died yesterday evening after going into a coma for less than one hour.

"His wife called me, crying and yelling that her husband had gone into a coma at their Festac residence (Lagos State) and after about an hour she confirmed that her husband was dead.
"Late Onyeawuna has been struggling with his health for decades, especially with his eyes, which saw him endure repeated operations countless times and he bore the cost of these operations with his life savings which saw him go broke and struggling financially for years but he consistently swore that he will never beg Nigeria, the country he served but which he said abandoned him for help.

"Onyeawuna also stopped granting media interviews some years ago when it published that he was pleading for Nigeria to come to his aid. Some years ago he was again involved in a ghastly auto accident that complicated his health but again he bore the cost and implications. At a time, attempts were made by some close associates to make the Lagos State Government help him with his eye operations but it never really happened."

Bola Tinubu - How Nigeria can defeat Boko Haram

Ashiwaju Bola Tinubu said only a bi-partisan approach can reign in Boko Haram and secure the country,
Nigeria's current political and security challenge is salvageable if leaders at all levels shed their egos, forgo their selfishness and renew their commitment to the people who elected them.
Mr. Tinubu said only a bi-partisan approach can reign in Boko Haram and secure the country
A former governor of Lagos State, Bola Tinubu, made the call in his Easter message to Nigerians.
"As we remember the death of Jesus and celebrate his resurrection, we must never forget that if not for the sacrifice he made for all, there could never have been a celebration and hope for a better future. Such is the message of Easter to all our leaders to make the sacrifices necessary so that our country will be better".
Mr. Tinubu, while wishing all Christians a happy and wonderful Easter, called on them to remain fervent in prayers for Nigeria so that God will turn the country's fortune around.

Man City is Still Hungry - Pellgrini

Manuel Pellegrini insists his Manchester City players will keep fighting for the Premier League title, despite their week to forget.
Liverpool's 3-2 win at Norwich on Easter Sunday means City sit nine points behind the Reds, albeit with two games in hand, ahead of Monday's encounter with West Brom.
Pellegrini's side were held to a surprise 2-2 home draw by bottom club Sunderland in midweek - a result the Chilean blamed on lingering effects of a 3-2 defeat by Brendan Rodgers' side just days earlier.
But he shrugged off suggestions that Liverpool's continued charge could further sap motivation against the Baggies.
"No, I think it was more difficult between Liverpool and Sunderland," Pellegrini said. "Now we have more time for the team to recover.

"I think that we are all conscious that we cannot play in the same way that we played against Sunderland.
"And I think it will not be so difficult (to raise players' spirits) as for the last game."
Liverpool's victory at Carrow Road was their 11th in a row but Pellegrini predicted further late twists, as Sunderland again provided with a shock win at Chelsea.
"I am absolutely sure the other teams will drop points in the same way we did in the last game," he said.
"We have 15 more points to play for and we will try and win the most amount of points.
"The game against Sunderland was a disappointment because we always want to win but, as I said before that game, playing against relegation-threatened teams during the last games of the season is not easy.
"It happened with Everton against Crystal Palace and with us.
"The performance in every game is very important and I hope we are going to improve our performance against West Brom."

No drugs or alcohol were in the star's system at the time.

The medical examiner officially classified the death as "atherosclerotic/arteriosclerotic cardiovascular disease," otherwise known as heart disease.

He was reportedly clutching his chest outside an Arizona hotel at the time of his death.

Known for his face paint, which appeared to pay homage to warrior cultures like the Maori, Warrior was an icon to pro wrestling fans.

Nigerian Witch-hunter to be Banned from UK

Activists in UK have called for the deportation of Nigerian movie producer and preacher, Lady Apostle Helen Ukpabio, founder of the controversial Liberty Foundation Ministries who runs a branch of her ministry in UK where she has now relocated to.

The activists in their letter claim she is a major threat to children, based on her doctrine that if a child under age two screams and cries in the middle of the night and with health conditions, that child is a servant of satan. 

Home Secretary, Theresa May has been urged to look into the case of this Nigerian witch hunter, ban her, and prevent her from further revivals which she does at different UK locations.

The preacher who claims to have been betrothed to Satan in her teens before being rescued from a cult at the age of 17 now specialises in deliverance sessions for liberating witchcraft captives.
The move which is said to put children's safety at  risk

As at the time of filing this report, we learnt Ms Ukpabio hasn't been tracked down.

Popular Blogger Commits Suicide

Beautiful creator of the uplifting website, ForBrownGirls.com Karyn Washington, 22, has died, due to an apparent suicide.
Karyen created the site as an "inspiration destination" where Black women with darker skin could go and feel beautiful. She also sparked the hashtag #DarkSkinRedLipProject after A$AP Rocky boldly stated that dark-skin women shouldn't wear red lipstick. This was a place where thousands of dark skin women posted stunning photos of themselves in red lipstick to dispel that wicked myth.
It's being reported that Karyn struggled with mental illness and depression and despite giving all the love in her heart to others, she wasn't able to give that same love to herself. Yes, Black women are strong, but that doesn't mean that we don't need help, or a shoulder to cry on every once in a while.
It's heartbreaking to report this because one would think that someone like Karyn, a woman who lived her life to uplift others, had it all together. Or was at least happy. But her suicide is evidence that there was something missing. At just 22-year-old, Karyn's short life is a sad testament to the increasing trend of suicide. According to the CDC's latest fact sheet on suicide, "The prevalence of suicidal thoughts, suicide planning and suicide attempts is significantly higher among young adults aged 18-29 years than among adults aged ≥30 years."
