Promo Pictures For WINNIE - The Movie


Finally promo pictures of one of the most talked about "still not finished" movies have emerged. The Movie starring 30 year old Oscar nominated singer, mother, and actress, Jeniffer Hudson and Terrence Howard is said to make its release some time next year in SA. The drama is based around the life of Winnie Madikizela-Mandela starting from her childhood to her marriage with Nelson Mandela.


Of course the production of the movie hasn't been without its controversies, the more prominent one bieng the fact that it is still believed that the real Winnie Mandela does not approve of the new movie and has been known to even call it an insult.

It's reported that neither the producers nor Jennifer Hudson herself took time to speak with Winnie prior to making this film. Hudson has been reported saying she would have loved to speak with Winnie but was advised otherwise by the producer of the film.


The film features a lot of local actors, mainly because it was shot in this country of course. One of whom is my good friend and former Class Act contestant, Muzi Clive. Like everybody else I am waiting in anticipation for the this potentially epic movie.


We can only wait and see if the producers' choice to do the movie without any input or even just a blessing from Winnie Mandela will yield good results.

I feel you Phil. I love her to bits and I think she's one of the best artists of our time. The only issue I have is that she is not visible at all. I blame her Marketing team for this. Her latest album was better than most albums produced at that time, but it was not well played.
