Marion Hall now a Minister of God, definitely lived an interesting life before turning her life around and becoming a Christian. Formerly known as Lady Saw, she believes her life story would be a good inspirational plot for a movie, so much so that she tapped American actor and business tycoon, Tyler Perry to produce a film about her journey.
The Dancehall legend evidently has intentions to take on a new chapter of her life and has her sights set on doing it big. She headed straight to the source of who she believes can communicate her story the best – billionaire director, producer, and screenwriter Tyler Perry.
“I can’t wait for you to do a movie about my life. My life and testimonies will save the lives of many women. Please check your inbox on your Instagram,” Marion wrote on Perry’s official Facebook page yesterday.
Hall, 51, who stepped away from a celebrated career in Dancehall music in 2016 to get baptized and embark on a renewed life as a Minister and Gospel music singer, might have appeared pretty bold in her appeal but the move didn’t go unnoticed nor unsupported.
The fans came out in their numbers to endorse the one-time ‘Queen of the Dancehall’.
“I definitely agree, I loved you as an artist & I feel like you set the blueprint in the Dancehall industry before the internet & social media was a thing, obviously you have transformed and that life is behind you now… but I have always been fascinated by your transformation due to the fact that when I saw you as a child you were a different person then. I also love how you transformed into a leader/ teacher. I would definitely watch a show/ documentary on this!” said one fan early on sighting the minister’s movie request.
Others joined in to say, “Seriously need to see this on the big screen,” “I hope he does check, tyler check you inbox thank you” and “That would be lovely!” added another.
Among the growing chatter, however, many thought it funny that Marion Hall felt her life story demanded a movie and one produced by such an icon in the film production space.
Some came to her defense like one fan who said, “I love the fact that you are ‘doing you’. The laughs and persecution means you have made the right choice. Best Wishes!!!”
Others responded to explain the root of the humor: “We’re laughing at the desperation it takes to assume a random comment on Facebook instead of, you know, actually doing the work, is going to get anywhere.”
Another added, “I’m pretty sure it’s thousands of people that says the same thing. I can imagine the emails.”
There is no telling how many avenues of contact (if any more) the minister has attempted or whether she already had an exchange with the Madea actor, but some fans feel it would be an unexploited effort if it were only a social media connection.
