Mai TT regrets her move to joining BJB Films for the production of A Life To Regret screen play which was scheduled to premiere this August.
Renowned comedian/artist, Felistas Murata Edwards, popularly known as Mai TT, is shocked after BJB Films announced their contract termination with her. BJB Films took to Facebook on the 18th of May to announce the contract termination with Mai TT as co-star on A Life To Regret, replacing her with Angel Mary Kato.
In a post that was later deleted after Mai TT posted, it read,
“It is sad to announce that we had to terminate Mai TT’s role and replace her with Angel Mary Kato due lack of professionalism on set and whilst living and working with other celebrities as well as the crew…”
BJB Films have tried to paint a bad picture of Mai TT due to mischievous behavior. Though she can be arrogant at times, the way they dismissed her sounded very wrong. Mai TT is reported to be a nuisance on set and a failure in terms of team work team building.
However, Mai TT responded to BJB whilst raising awareness of her upcoming show in South Africa where she will share the stage with big acts like Cassper Nyovest. The post read,
“We go where we get paid were we are not used , and taken advantage of because at the end of the day we got kids to take care of. We are Artists we deserve better . Were we are used we shift. Fam link up with me on the 29th of May alongside Casper Nyovest…”
Mai TT sustained a huge blow from BJB films and revealed the main reason they had to let her go. There was a misunderstanding in term of contract agreements and payments. According to her post on Facebook, it shows that BJB was not paying Mai TT what she deserved.
Despite her not receiving the adequate payments, Mai TT did not send nukes at BJB Films but left her grievances reserved. BJB Films on the other hand missed the target and disgraced their brand. After Mai TT responded, BJB Films deleted their post. Which makes Mai TT clear of the allegations against her.
Zimbabweans have responded aggressively to BJB Films and saw as a bait to leverage her numbers so to market their film. BJB is an up an coming film company that’s set to premiere a star studded film featuring acts like Awilo Longomba, Demarco, Jacqueline Musinga and Benny Demus.
However, UK based production house had wished well for Mai TT and also called out for more creatives from Zimbabwe interested to enquire for an interview to work with them.
“We love Zimbabweans that’s why we picked someone from Zimbabwe but unfortunately, we could not continue with her. We are open for interviews with all Zimbabwean companies…”
To add on, Leo Brown the founder had revealed that, after they are done with London they were going to fly down to Zimbabwe for another set.
He said before they come down to Zimbabwe, they will first shoot another film in London in January which will have a similar cast.
“We are working on the soundtrack for another upcoming movie titled A Life to regret that we’ll start shooting in London in January. It’ll feature Awilo Longomba, Mai Titi and Jacqueline Musinga among others.
“For the Zimbabwean one whose filming is meant to commence in August, we’ll be working with Demarco, Ammara Brown, Benny-Demus, Mai Titi and Awilo,” Brown said. (Source Herald)
