“Jay Jay Okocha is not involved” Charles Novia disclaims JJ Okocha’s involvement in Majek Fashek’s life movie

duru and majekWho spreads this rumours?!
Popular Nollywood filmmaker, Charles Novia has disclaimed legendary
football player, Austin JJ Okocha’s involvement in the Majek Fashek’s
life movie. See his press statement below:

My attention has been drawn to a story which is gaining lying
grounds on major blogs and sites about Football Legend, Austin Jay Jay
Okocha, involved in the production of The Majek Fashek movie written by
me and starring Francis Duru.

“That story is false and is an attempt by a lazy and reprobate online writer to gain traffic to his site. It
is public knowledge that since 2010, I have been in production of the
Majek Fashek movie and half of the production which has to do with the
childhood years of Majek has been completed. 

The adult years is the next
part to be shot which will involve his musical sojourn to New York and
what comes thereafter. Production has been suspended because of a few
technical and logistics hitches which have been rectified and hopefully
we will continue shoot in a few months. 

At no time have I met
Austin Okocha, whom I respect a lot and I certainly do not intend to
meet him over this or to solicit his involvement as at present I am the
major Executive Producer of the movie. 

A lazy online blogger
sat down, took snippets of past interviews I have given on the movie and
added some sound bites from Francis Duru and coined his story. 

He also
must have taken a past story of Austin Okocha’s bio-pic being planned by
someone else and by a stroke of reprobate ingenuity, used a photo-ops
picture of Majek and Okocha to give credence to his story without even
finding out from any of the parties he mentioned. This writer,
whom I have traced as a contributing correspondent with, has
succeeded in spreading a half-truth and as is wont in today’s viral
culture, the story has gone all over the place, causing untold
embarassment to me, Majek and even my co-investors in Hollywood who drew
my attention to the story. I am pretty sure Jay Jay Okocha is as
surprised at this story as I am. I urge the General Public to disregard this story,” 
Charles wrote in.
