Prior to the death of rapper Nipsey Hussle on March 31, 2019, he was working on a documentary involving the life and work of Honduran herbalist and healer, Dr. Sebi. Upon Nipsey’s untimely passing, fellow rapper and filmmaker, Nick Cannon, vowed to see the project through.
“Where you left off, we gonna carry one! It’s a MARATHON, so I’m picking up the baton! Because they can’t kill us all,” Cannon said in a 2019 post eulogizing Hussle, real name Ermias Asghedom. “Now, Your message is my message! Your work is my work! I know you still rocking with us and your voice will never be silenced because to be absent from the body is to be present with the Most High!”

Now, a year to the date with the caption “As Promised”, Nick Cannon has released the trailer for “Strong Enemies: The Untold Case Of Dr.Sebi” on Instagram.
Dr. Sebi, born November 26, 1933, was vegan and believed in curing all forms of ailments and diseases with holistic methods such as herbs and vegan diets. Although, not a licensed physician, he set up multiple treatment centers where his clientele included high profile celebrities such as Michael Jackson and Lisa “Lefteye” Lopes. Dr. Sebi died in August 2016 after falling ill in a Honduras prison. Family and supporters believe his death to be under suspicious circumstances.
