We are just a few months away from the premiere of the sequel to one of the most popular African-American comedy films of our generation and our euphoria just went up a notch after an African superstar officially confirmed he’s on the highly anticipated project.

As Face2Face Africa previously reported, Coming 2 America features a smorgasbord of some popular Black actors and celebrities joining Eddie Murphy and the other original cast members reprising their roles.

In 2019, American comedian of Ghanaian descent Michael Blackson – who is also reportedly a cast member – seemingly revealed that Nigerian superstar musician Davido will feature on the sequel to which he congratulated him.

Though the Fall crooner remained tight-lipped about it, he finally broke his silence on Monday after tweeting “can’t wait” in response to a post by a local entertainment page about him being cast in the upcoming movie.

Though details surrounding the movie’s entire cast are little, Davido, 27, reportedly joins the likes of South African actress Nomzamo Mbatha, Wesley Snipes, KiKi Layne, Jermaine Fowler, Leslie Jones and Tracy Morgan, among others. Arsenio Hall, James Earl Jones and Paul Bates will also reprise their roles.

In the first installment of the movie, Akeem (Eddie Murphy) leaves the Kingdom of Zamunda to America, where he seeks a wife. He is accompanied by his aide Semmi (Arsenio Hall). In the second installment, Akeem has just found out that he left a son in America and travels back in search of the next heir of the Kingdom of Zamunda.

Black-ish creator Kenya Barris was chosen to re-write the script by original writers and also executive produce it. Murphy and Kevin Misher are slated as the producers and Craig Brewer as the director, according to an announcement by Paramount.

“After many years of anticipation, I’m thrilled that Coming to America 2 is officially moving forward. We’ve assembled a great team that will be led by Craig Brewer, who just did an amazing job on Dolemite, and I’m looking forward to bringing all these classic and beloved characters back to the big screen,” Murphy said in a statement.
