JJ Okocha Set To Produce World Class Movie Based On Majek Fashek! Francis Duru To Play The Lead Role

Former Super Eagles player and  club owner, JJ Okocha is set to produce a movie based on the life of Reggae star, Majek Fashek. The movie will be directed by Jeta Amata. I'm sure you trust his movies. It will be shot in Nigeria and New York. Francis Duru will be playing the role of Majek Fashek and has been undergoing guitar lessons.

    3. How THICK is this comment above mine! Ok, lemme try and make it plain. From where I sit, it is apparent to me that the movie, if scripted, directed and produced with professionalism, will serve the following social, cultural and economic benefits:
      1. Culturally, many young Nigerians under the age of 20 do not know Majek's music and how didactic it was in the 80's and early 90s. The movie will educate them. It will also serve as a road map for young people to see the pits and perils that come with stardom so that they can advise themselves appropriately.
      2. Socially, it will have documented in lasting film format, the lives of one of our cultural icons. Some Nigerians may not regard him as an icon, but if music in any shape or form has ever been useful to your life, you should honour those who create it. ( Moreso when they lead lives as interesting as Majek's)
      3. Economically, it may interest you to note that unlike many of the Nigerian musicians of his days (besides Fela), and even many Nigerian musicians today, Majek has quite some international clout and renown. If the movie project is done right, the financial rewards for JJ Okocha will blow your mind as he smiles on his merry way to the bank. It's a business, man! Capisce?!

  13. Like seriously??? Please Jay Jay don't waste your money! Nollywood is not as lucrative as they say it is. Even the main character Francis Duru is not so good as an actor.

  16. Francis Duru is a seasoned actor,Jeta Amata is a hugely talented movie director,so the movie will likely be awesome. JayJay may not have profit motive for going into this production.Money is not everything. Visit http://www.olusolaoso.blogspot.com/ for captivating stories on entertainment,politics,sports and love
