Equatorial Guinea has just been named the hosts for the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations. The Confederation of African Football (CAF) selected the country as a replacement for Morocco who requested that the Nations cup be postponed due to concern over an outbreak of the Ebola virus in their country.

It would appear that Nigeria was also in strong contention as a replacement for Morocco as hosts, but turned it down also due to Ebola fears. According to football analyst Colin Udoh, “Nigeria were this close to accepting to host, but backed down to the Ebola argument, saying – We were lucky to escape it first time, don’t test the fates.”

Jay Jay Okocha Biopic planned

Apparently there is a JayJay Okocha biopic in the works, it will be called Feet of Destiny (no surprises there…nollywood movie…cheesy title). The movie will reportedly span the entirety of Okocha’s life, including his football career.

Emeka Ike is lined up to play the football ace….Jimmy Jean Luis (Phat Girlz) will also be appearing.

Still on the topic of  biopics, there is also a DAGRIN movie in the works – which would chronicle the late rapper’s life and his tragic death at 26 in April 2010. I hope these movies are done justice, and cast properly, as they more often than not Nollywood productions turn out to be over-acted, badly directed and poorly produced.

“Nuff said

What are your thoughts?
