Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have named their baby daughter North West.

Sources close to the couple confirmed the decision, which comes five days after Kim welcomed her first child at a hospital in Los Angeles.

The revelation ends the intense speculation over the child’s name, with other rumoured options said to include Kaidence Donda, in honour of Kanye’s late mother.

And a  source told UsWeekly that the couple have already given their daughter a nickname – she will be ‘Nori for short’.

They added that the child has no middle name.

TMZ witnessed a signed birth certificate with the name North West signed by Kim, 32, and Kanye, 36, at Cedars-Sinai hospital.

People magazine confirmed the news with a source close to the Kardashian family.

The name North had previously been suggested as a possibility for the child, although many Kardashian fans had dismissed the idea as a joke.

And the revelation certainly proved fruitful amongst Twitter users, as North West began trending within minutes.

It also sparked a slew of jokes from would-be comedians amused by the choice.

Back in March, Kim denied rumours that Kanye wanted to name the baby North.

‘I do like Easton, Easton West,’ she joked on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno at the time.

Indeed prior to the baby’s birth on Saturday it had been expected that the pair would continue the ‘K’ theme that runs in Kim’s family – which is something that Kim has spoken about in the past.

 

While North was to prove her final choice, Kim was said to be very keen on Kaidence, to match her family’s fondness of the letter ‘K’.

The reality star was reported to like the idea of calling the baby Kai for short.

And further report claimed the middle name would be Donda, in honour of Kanye’s late mother, who died in 2007 due to complications from cosmetic surgery.

Meanwhile Kim’s close friend Larsa Pippen recently revealed that she had been to visit the baby in the hospital and a decision was nearly made.

But she said Kim didn’t welcome her suggestions.

‘We kind of went back and forth and the name that I wanted, [Kim] didn’t love,’ she said.

While fans had been desperate to know the name of the baby, the child’s step uncle Brody Jenner revealed on Thursday that he didn’t want to know.

‘It’s so new, so I’m going to give her some time and then as soon as she’s ready, I’ll come see her,’ he told Ryan Seacrest.

Kim gave birth to her first child Saturday 15 June – a month ahead of her due date.

Mail Online exclusively revealed that the reality star had been admitted to hospital in Beverly Hills the night before.

Kim had taken out a birthing suite at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center – a hospital of choice among many celebrities including Britney Spears, Victoria Beckham and Jessica Simpson.

Hours later – around 1:30 a.m. – she gave birth to her baby girl, now believed to be named North.

Her partner, rapper Kanye West, and mother Kris Jenner were reportedly at her side.

Kim’s due date was reportedly July 12 – just one day after Kate Middleton.

The date would also have been Kanye’s mother Donda West’s 64th birthday.

By Staff Writer

MultiChoice Africa is thrilled to announce that the final students for the MultiChoice Talent Factory (MTF) Academy Class of 2019 have been chosen. After a two-month long rigorous selection process across 13 African countries, 60 aspiring filmmakers representing East Africa, Southern Africa and West Africa will begin their 12-month training programme at the MTF Academies in Nairobi, Lusaka & Lagos in October this year.

The final candidates were selected after a rigorous interview and adjudication process by film and television experts, as well as regional Academy Directors Njoki Muhoho (East Africa), Berry Lwando (Southern Africa) and Femi Odugbemi (West Africa). Launched in May 2018 as part of MultiChoice Africa’s ground-breaking corporate shared value (CSV) initiative, the MTF Academy is a 12-month fully-funded training programme aimed at upskilling the next generation of passionate young film creatives. As the first touchpoint of the shared-value initiative, the academy’s curriculum was tailored alongside MultiChoice Africa partner institutions Pan-Atlantic University in Lekki, Kenyatta University in Nairobi, and the University of Zambia in Lusaka, which will respectively confer the course qualification upon completion of the academy programme.

In addition, The Henley Business School offers an orientation intervention to the students at the beginning and end of the 12-month programme. The appetite for training opportunities across Africa is massive within the creative film and TV industry, according to MultiChoice Talent Factory Director Cheryl Uys-Allie, which is exactly why the MTF Academy programme was launched.“As one of the few industry players that not only tell African stories but also invest in them, the need for a dynamic training programme such as the MTF Academy has been a long time coming. As MultiChoice Africa, we always ask ourselves: what’s next in the industry, and how can we better prepare for it? The MTF Academy was the answer to that question: By giving young Africans the chance to hone their television and film production skills,” says Uys-Allie.The Class of 2019 is hot on the heels of the inaugural Class of 2018, who are ready to graduate and have their first films screened on M-Net channels and Showmax.

This year’s class will reap the additional rewards of -new partnerships between the MTF Academy and Jasco Broadcast Solutions as well as Nihilent with its connection to Bollywood, as well as existing partnerships with the New York Film Academy College of Visual & Performing Arts (NYFA), DOLBY Institute and Universal Music Nigeria (UMG). As part of their curriculum, the 2019 candidates will also be exposed to the MTF Masterclasses, aimed at upskilling industry professionals and emerging creatives alike by offering exclusive access to practical, expert-led industry skills workshops across the 13 participating countries. Here’s to another year of investing directly in Africa’s dynamic storytelling spirit through the MTF Academy!
