Celebrities such as Gail Mabalane, Miss South Africa Shudufhadzo Musiḓa Somizi Mhlongo and Linda Mtoba congratulated Nomzamo’s appearance on the poster.
Coming 2 America is a follow up of the classic 1988 film starring Eddie Murphy as Prince Akeem and Arsenio Hall as Semmi.
In the sequel, Prince Akeem is set to become King of Zamunda when he discovers he has a son he never knew about in the US. The film was directed by Craig Brewer and shot in Atlanta, Georgia. Brewer recently directed Netflix’s Dolemite Is My Name.
In August, it was announced that Nomzamo was cast in the movie, although details of her character are still not available.
Nomzamo received another accolade recently. She and Thuso Mbedu made Essence’s 20 Young Black Hollywood Stars To Watch list.
Audiences can watch Coming 2 America on Amazon Prime from 5 March.
