Production has been halted on Brenda Fassie biopic, after the matter went to court and ruled in favour of Chicco Twala.
Last month, Sello Chicco Twala (who back then used to manage & produce music for Mabrr) came to public and made it clear that he won’t let Bongani Fassie to go ahead with this production.
Chicco revealed that he has rights to Brenda’s music and Bongani cannot just put forward such a huge move and not follow correct procedures.
In an interview with Power FM this past week, Chicco did confirm that the Brenda Fassie film has been stopped after the matter went to court.
The North Gauteng High Court ordered Bongani Fassie, UK based production (Showbizbee) and other respondents to stop production of the biopic.
Court order states:
“Pending the finalisation of the relief sought in part B, the respondents are interdicted and or restrained from conducting any casting auditions, promotions, advertisement and production of the movie of the late Brenda Fassie directly or indirectly through any third party.”
“Pending the finalisation of the relief sought in part B, the first, second, and third respondents are interdicted and or restrained from entering into any agreement contract with any third party for the production of the late Brenda Fassie movie.”
At this stage no further details have been revealed on what will happen. So stay tuned for more.
