  1. There is a video on YouTube of Eddie Murphy and Arsenio Hall discussing Coming To America 2 and they both mention Michael Blackson name about being in Coming To America 2.

  2. … i Do not wanna See Another Coming to America 2. people Seem to be more Hype About re-Boots than Actual New ideas .

  3. Eddie can do whatever he chooses with his movies, besides I think he should try to use the same cast if they are able to do it?

  4. Funfact: African movie industry, Nollywood is the 2nd largest film industry in the world.

  5. Yes theyve to put Africans in it, it doesn’t make sense not in 2019, micheal blackson must be init

  6. “Black Panther opened up another avenue for people who wanted to be educated on Africa.”

    Wait, a completely made up fictional world and fantasy black superhero (created by two white guys) is educating people about Africa???


    • Basically what he means is, africa would be the most powerful place in the world if colonizers didn’t take over it…that’s what black panther movie was trying to say in the first ten minutes of it! Smh that’s the educational part
