A movie titled "Higher and Higher - Brenda The Movie", celebrating the life and times of Brenda Fassie, South Africa's undisputed queen of pop, is expected to be released next year.

Auditions will be held countrywide from September this year for Fassie's look-alike, said producer Hassan Masia. He revealed exclusively to Sowetan yesterday that preparations for the movie were already under way.

The movie will capture Fassie's life from the day she left Langa, Cape Town, her hometown, to seek fame and fortune in Johannesburg to her success and misfortunes there.

He said Fassie's family had given permission for the shooting of the movie and will be involved in its making.
