The mystery is finally over as to who will play Whitney Houston in the upcoming Lifetime biopic about the late singer.

Despite Bobbi Kristina Brown saying she is the only one who should play her  late mother, the role is going to actress Yaya DaCosta Alafia.

According to TVLine.com, the TV-movie will be about Houston’s up and down relationship with Bobby Brown while in the midst of becoming a superstar.
