A primary school in Dandora, Kenya has been renamed in honor of Academy Award-winner, Lupita Nyong’o.

Formerly Eagles Safe Hands Education Centre, the school will be known as Lupita Bright Stars Educational Centre. Speaking to The Nairobian, the school’s founder, Alice Anyasi Shiangala said wanted to celebrate Lupita’s success. “I decided to rename my school after watching Lupita’s father, Prof Anyang’ Nyong’o, being interviewed by Jeff Koinange on KTN. I was touched by her story. She is a true star who deserves better recognition. She has brought fame to our country,” Alice explained.

“I talked to my husband about changing the school’s name and he agreed. We are now working on the legal process, including replacing old signposts and banners.”

Although born in Mexico City, Nyong’o’s parents are from Kenya. The actress says she identifies herself as being Mexican-Kenyan.

Music’s most amazing night went down Sunday at the Microsoft Theater in L.A. and we have to say the night was all about the ladies!

That’s right the 45th American Music Awards had some major moments and some major girl power starting with Pink and Kelly Clarkson.

The duo got the show started singing R.E.M.’s “Everybody Hurts”, but it was their solo performances that had fans going nuts.

Kelly Clarkson returned to the stage and had everyone on their feet with a medley of her classic tracks and new single “Love So Soft.”

While Pink took her career to new heights leaping off the side of a building while performing her hit single “Beautiful Trauma.”

Christina Aguilera, paid tribute to Whitney Houston with a commemorative performance for the 25th anniversary of The Bodyguard.

But the #Majah moment of the night had to be Diana Ross. The Motown legend was given the Lifetime Achievement Award, and performed some of her greatest hits before accepting the honor.
