Roye Okupe’s Youneek Studios Takes Girl Power To Whole New Level With ‘Malika’ Comic Title

African and Nigerian animator, writer and creator of the comic EXO  ‘Legend of Wale Williams’ and founder of Youneek Studios Roye Okupe is set to take the African Superhero world by storm, with the release of his new comic titled Malika.

According to Roye, Malaika is a story about a 15th century West African Warrior Queen. In the story, we follow the exploits of Queen and military commander Malika, who struggles to keep the peace in her ever-expanding kingdom. As she fights to win the clandestine war within the walls of her Azzazian empire, Malika must now turn her attentions to an indomitable and treacherous foe with plans to vanquish her entire people… and oh yeah, she kicks a whole of ass in the process.



Here is a little Bio about Malika.

“From its humble beginnings with founder Hasan Bakwa to more than a decade of civil war and finally its expansion into a formidable empire under Queen Malika, Azzaz has seen its fair share of both prosperity and turmoil. Covering an area of about 850,000 square kilometers, Azzaz is divided into five provinces, with the capital city, Azzaz, at its center: the Kano Province in the North, the Bornu Province in the North East, the Fon Province to the West, the Mandara Province to the East, and the Nupe Province to South.
Each province has a Chief to represent it in the Council; as a group the Council, advises the current ruler. Over the years, though not a law, it became implied that no one ruler was above the council – a notion that would eventually cause great disunity”.

Fun Fact: Since taking over as queen, Malika is undefeated in battle.
