“I am so excited to be a part of this production… When DJ Buddha and Nick Cannon told me they wrote in a part for me, to say I was shocked would be the biggest understatement. But they saw something in my personality they felt movie worthy. Not only that they had me play myself, which made it even more special to me… My voice is heard throughout the movie before my visual part in the end. To Nick and his team I am forever grateful” – Nikki Z
Nick Cannon’s, King of the Dancehall will premiere on September 8th, 2016 at the Toronto Film Festival.
