Next month, movie goers will get to experience Yvonne Chaka Chaka’s acting chops when she takes to the silver screen alongside Skeem Saam’s Cedric Fourie, Vusi Kunene, Joey Rasdien, Quincy Giles and Legendary Nigerian actress, Patience Ozokwo for Nigeria’s latest pan-African offering titled “Johnny Just Come” or JJC for short.
“I was approached by the film’s producers when I was in L.A for the BET Awards. I asked them to send me a script so that I could see if it resonated with me. I accepted the opportunity because with so much negativity in Africa – murder, war, famine and death – it is important that we learn to laugh.”
According to top Nigerian blogger, Linda Ikeji, Chaka Chaka even cut her hair for the role. The film was shot in both Lagos and South Africa and is set to premiere on 16 March 2018.
