The post garnered lots of happy reactions as many of her fans who recognized Zack Orji, could not contain their excitement about a movie featuring two beloved stars:

One fan remembered Zack from his early acting days; demdemy18 @fellamakafui that's my all time most respected Celeb. Humble , soft spoken , a gentleman and a legend. Rem him from the 90s movie "blood money" time flies..

We certainly think you should @thelonzy; thelonzy Miss please should we expect something like a movie from you two?

Someone else had these kind words about Mr. Orji; akuaafriyiemensah This man right here is so easy going with a loving heart. I once met him in London one afternoon with my then one year old daughter and his kind gesture and attitude blew me away. Really Love! love! love him

Fella Makafui’s rise to fame started with YOLO, however, she has set herself apart with other ventures as well.
