A movie on the life of a music legend Brenda Fassie is in production and is expected to hit the cinemas later in the year.
Brenda's son Bongani Fassie spoke to CapeTalk/702's Mandy Wiener about the production and the cast of this upcoming movie.
He says auditions will soon be held for the lead role of his mother Brenda Fassie. However, Twitter seems to have chosen Brenda Ngxoli to play Brenda Fassie.
In my entire life I have never had a chance to tell the story through the son's eye.— Bongani Fassie, son to music legend Brenda Fassie
As the executive producer I have been given an opportunity to tell the story as I know it and as I lived it.— Bongani Fassie, son to music legend Brenda Fassie
The biopic would be written and directed by Edward Shaw with a script based on a story by Bongani will be released in the year.
Bongani says the entire cast will be strictly South African.
