  1. what did he do that they will play a movie on his name? Even the great Bob marley nobody played a movie on his name not just for playing one record, the way am seeing it all these our low grade actors and actress this is DOA meaning dead on arrival.

    • That no movie was done for Marley does not diminish the achievements of Majek. It is a case of two great prophets and philosophers. If you don’t know, read about Majek.

  2. Seen is believing ‘cos what we don’t see we can not say how it is but i do belieue that everyone of them will do their best including our ex-player.So let’s wait and see.I remain my self.

  3. Francis duru playing majek is a producer/cast error,i tink d closest in resemblance n character is hanks anuku. Dats if u realy want 2 get it right. I cant see francis playing dat role better dan hanks
