Bongani Fassie Gives An Update On The Brenda Fassie Film. If there is a local icon who deserves to be honored in a big way, it has to be Brenda Fassie. Unfortunately her much anticipated film which could have been a great tribute to her, was surrounded by controversy, from the get go.
There were some heated disagreements between Fassie’s manager Chicco Twala and her son Bongani. Twala’s plan was to indelibly interdict Fassie’s son from having the rights to produce a movie concerning his mother’s life. Because of this, the Brenda Fassie Film was put on hold.
It looks like things are now back on track. After a long fight, Bongani finally can tell his mother’s story through film. He has not shared details about the release date and who will be playing the iconic role of Brenda. All that the producer and singer, shared, is a glimpse of the premier, and we definitely can’t wait.
