    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.
