“Jay Jay Okocha Not Involved In Majek Fashek Movie” – Charles Novia

share on:

Iconic Nollywood producer Charles Novia has reportedly labelled Jay Jay Okocha’s rumored involvement in the production of Majek Fashek’s biopic as false.

An excerpt from his press release reads:

“My attention has been drawn to a story which is gaining lying grounds on major blogs and sites about Football Legend, Austin Jay Jay Okocha, involved in the production of The Majek Fashek movie written by me and starring Francis Duru.

That story is false and is an attempt by a lazy and reprobate online writer to gain traffic to his site. It is public knowledge that since 2010, I have been in production of the Majek Fashek movie and half of the production which has to do with the childhood years of Majek has been completed.

The adult years is the next part to be shot which will involve his musical sojourn to New York and what comes thereafter. Production has been suspended because of a few technical and logistics hitches which have been rectified and hopefully we will continue shoot in a few months.
At no time have I met Austin Okocha, whom I respect a lot and I certainly do not intend to meet him over this or to solicit his involvement as at present I am the major Executive Producer of the movie.”
