JJ Okocha joins Nollywood, produces movie about Majek Fashek

 New reports surfacing online, claim that our dear Nigerian
football legend Austin JJ Okocha is currently producing a movie about
reggae star Majek Fashek.
The movie’s screen play is reportedly written by Charles Novia, and features Fracis Duru as Majek Fasek, Sam Dede, Stella Damascus and other top Nollywood actors.

Confirming the reports, Charles Novia says the movie is shooting on
35mm and took about 3 years to fine-tune.   It is presently at its
pre-production stage, after which the crew will travel to New York in
October to shoot the America scene, which is the major part of the film.
Fracis Duru, as it was gathered has been undergoing guitar lessons,
and extensive study of Majek’s character  for the past eight month to
fit the role.
Here’s what Francis said about Majek Fashek:

Whatever his travails and the public perception of him,
Majek still remain a world class material, who has promoted so much
interest world wide with his type of genre of music, So a movie of his
life and career has to meet a world class,”
