Linda "ProKid" Mkhize's former manager, Sidney “Sidmoney” Hall, is consulting with the late rapper's family about a film based on his life. He wants production of the film to start soon, but it's on ice for now.
Sidney “Sidmoney” Hall, former manager of late rapper, Linda "ProKid" Mkhize, has put on hold his plans to make a film based on the musician's life.
Sidney was Prokid's manager for two years and is currently consulting with his family about the film, according to TimesLIVE.
He apparently told Tbo Touch that he's eager to start working on the film and will have auditions held as early as July.
Phumza Nohashe, the spokesperson for ProKid's family, has confirmed that the family has met with Sidney to talk about his plans for the film.
However, until he can give more details of the planned project, the family has requested he put it on hold.
"The family sat down with him and it seemed there were no conclusive plans. They will not stop him from making a movie. They simply wanted to understand what it was that he was looking to do. He spoke out of excitement."
Briefly.co.za gathered that Sandile Mkhize, ProKid's younger brother, was actually taken aback by news of a film.
"As a family, we’re far from engaging on any movie as we’re still wrapping up my brother’s estate," he said.
"The only project we’ve given our blessings to is the collective tribute album featuring various artists, set to be released later in the year, with all proceeds going to the trust."
Sandile added that any decisions about the film will be taken with consideration of his daughter.
"This is Nonkanyezi's legacy," he added, referring to ProKid's daughter. "Let us all be mindful of that."
