A Miriam Makeba Biopic Is Underway


Eight years ago, the world lost the legendary Miriam Makeba. The late South African singer and civil rights activist who was nicknamed Mama Africa will be honored in a biopic that is still in its early stages. Currently unnamed, the film is expected to surpass past attempts at retelling Makeba’s story. While very few details on the biopic have surfaced, we do know it will be produced by de Passe Jones Entertainment‘s Suzanne de Passe (the woman responsible for penning the script to the 1972 Billie Holiday film Lady Sings The Blues) and her business partner. This long overdue project is one we’ll be first in line to see. Until then, join us as we revisit her phenomenal music catalogue with “Pata Pata” and “The Click Song” below.
