COMEDIAN Felistas Murata, otherwise known as Mai Titi in the local showbiz scene, was fired on set in Tanzania with the producers stating that she was disorderly.
Mai Titi was invited by United Kingdom based Burundi born filmmaker Billy Jeremiah Brown of the BJB films to star on his latest project.
The comedian had already started shooting scenes for the movie titled A Life To Regret, which has a star-studded cast including Congolese Rumba singer Awilo Longomba.
Mai Titi was one of the lead actors playing the step-mother’s role in a production that is centered on exposing the step-mother to step-daughter hostile relations.
It was set to premiere in August.
With only just a month of staying in Tanzania for the shoot, BJB films have made it clear on their social media pages that they have stopped working with the Zimbabwean comedian for unprofessionalism reasons.
Tanzania musician has since replaced Mai Titi.
“It’s really sad to announce that we had to terminate Mai Titi’s role due to lack of professionalism on set and whilst living and working with other celebrities as well as the crew.
“She is being replaced with Angel Mary Kato.
“We love Zimbabweans that’s why we picked someone from that country, but unfortunately we could not continue with her,” said BJB films in a statement.
With Mai Titi sacked, this means that she will no longer be part of the BJB next production which is meant to be shot in Zimbabwe after A Life To Regret.
The upcoming r0mantic movie is said to also feature Jamaican chanter Dermaco and Akon’s Konvict Muzik producer Benny-Demus.
