James Bond Bosses To Start Search For Daniel Craig’s Replacement

James Bond bosses to start search for Daniel Craig’s replacement after No Time To Die

Daniel Craig is set to step down as suave spy James Bond following the release of No Time To Die. Producers will need to start looking for a new Bond to replace Daniel – but when will they start looking for Daniel’s replacement?

Producers will soon be on the hunt for a new James Bond as Daniel Craig is stepping down.

Daniel’s last outing as the world’s most famous spy will be in the hotly-anticipated No Time To Die, which will be released in cinemas this Thursday after a number of delays due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Now bosses will need consider who to hire next for the role – with names like Idris Elba, Tom Hardy, Luke Evans, Tom Hiddleston and Regé-Jean Page all being thrown into the hat.

However, Bond producer Barbara Broccoli says they won’t start looking for Daniel’s replacement until “next year”.

Admitting she was “in denial” about Daniel’s exit, Barbara revealed they would turn their attention on their next appointment in 2022.

“We want Daniel to have his time of celebration,” she told BBC Radio 4’s Today show.

“Next year we’ll start thinking about the future.”

Fellow producer Michael G. Wilson also explained how Daniel has left some “big shoes to fill” after five films.

Daniel played Bond for 15 years and he shared how the role gave him “more things in life than he could wish for”.

“I look at what I have done and go, ‘That is part of Goldfinger’. I am like, ‘Wow, I am connected to Goldfinger, Dr No, Live And Let Die,'” he said in documentary, Being James Bond.

“My tenure is what it is, but it is only part of something bigger. I look back at the films and am incredibly proud of everyone one of them. I know we have done our best and we have really done our best.”

Daniel was left in tears as he gave a speech to the cast and crew when filming wrapped on No Time To Die.

He added: “Leaving this role is not easy, it is a really difficult thing to do. And it is not about money and fame. I am incredibly lucky and fortunate to have been able to do this.

I am not ready to have kids- Burna boy

Grammy-winning Nigerian singer, Damini Ogulu, popularly known as Burna Boy, has opened up about why he is not ready to be a father yet.

The ‘City Boys’ crooner said he is not ready to have kids yet because he can’t give them the attention they deserve.

The entertainer stated this while responding to a question raised by a fan during a recent Instagram live session with his fans.

He explained that he would have children when he was settled or married.

“Why haven’t I had kids yet? Bro, because I don’t want to have kids yet,” Burna boy said.

“Have you seen my mum the way she loves me? Have you seen my dad the way he loves me?I know I can’t give that to anyone right now with the life I’m living. So until I’m settled and I can be there for my children everyday, I’m not having no kid.

I feel like my kids deserved better than I got. And I got both my mum and dad so you understand?”

On the allegations that he is impotent, Burna Boy said, “When I see the bants and the things people say [about me not being able to have kids], I said this is unimportant. Let’s assume that it is true that I couldn’t even have kids, you know that there’s something called IVF? But that is not even true.”

Burna Boy started to gain fame after releasing ‘Like to Party’, the lead single from his debut album ‘L.I.F.E’ (2013).

In 2021, the singer set a record in Nigeria after his fifth album ‘Twice As Tall (2020)’ won the ‘Best World Music Album’ category at the Grammys.

Cause of Mohbad’s death cannot be ascertained’ – Pathologist

The pathologist, who conducted an autopsy on the body of late singer, Ilerioluwa Aloba, AKA Mohbad, has said that the cause of death couldn’t be ascertained.

A Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Wahab Shittu, told newsmen in Lagos State on Wednesday that the pathologist in charge told the coroner that the deceased’s body had decomposed by the time the test was conducted.

Shittu said, “According to him (pathologist), the cause of death cannot be determined because, by the time they conducted the test, the body had decomposed and that it is not possible for them to determine the cause of death

“So, in summary, he is saying the cause of death cannot be ascertained. When you say the cause of death cannot be ascertained, it means it is suspicious, it is not clear. No particular reason.”

Shittu added that the pathologist said Mohbad may have died due to a reaction to certain drugs administered to him before he died.

“He also went further to say that it may be attributed to reaction to certain drugs administered on him before he died. Again, he then qualified that to say he does not know whether it is those drugs that actually led to his death,” he said.
