Local star Khanyi Mbau thinks that Beyoncé wasn't the right fit for the voice of Nala in "The Lion King" live-action remake.
"The Lion King" remake has been met with mixed reviews from US movie critics following the first batch of reviews dropping last week with the star-studded film currently sitting at 59% on Rotten Tomatoes.
Following clips of the "Drunk in Love" singer as the voice of Nala making its way to the internet, Mbau shared her displeasure regarding Beyonce's voice acting in the film.
Taking to Twitter, Mbau said: "Beyoncé ...lion, A BIG NO!! She messed up the film."

The BeyHive - Beyoncé stans - quickly flooded Mbau's mentions commenting on the fact that she hasn't watched the film yet and throwing insults her way.
