Following the release of the sequel to 1988’s Coming To America on Amazon Prime, viewers took to Twitter to commend the Nigerian-American star on his performance.

Fans took to Twitter to write: ‘Congrats to Eddie Murphy For being able to have our very own Davido on Coming 2 America’ and ‘Davido is in coming 2 America. My actual kingggggg. I’m so gassed, i actually screamed’.

Others added: ‘Davido unlocked another Level.. Big Fish,’ ‘Nah I’m sorry Davido has really made it, Cus to sing in a big Hollywood movie deep it with Wesley snipes and Eddie Murphy’ and ‘Coming 2 America was good, loved Davido on there’. 



The singer is seen wearing a floral suit as he performs during a party scene in the film, which has gone down very well with viewers.

The film sees Eddie return as the newly-crowned King Akeem Joffer who returns to Queens, New York, to honour his father’s dying wish for him to find his long lost son.

The actor revealed that he was so happy with how the movie ended up turning out after fans had warned him not to ‘f**k it up’. 

He told Antonio Banderas for Variety: ‘I’m just over the moon with how it’s turned out. 

‘I don’t know what it is about that movie, but that’s the one movie that I’ve done that, like, on Halloween people dress up like the characters, and people always say lines from that movie to me.’
