Blockbuster comedy, Coming to America first released in 1988 will be returning to screens with a sequel written by the creator of comedy series, Black-ish, and Eddie Murphy will be returning in his role as Prince Akeem.

The sequel will be based on the story of Prince Akeem returning to America to find his long-lost son, the rightful heir to the throne of Zamunda.

The sequel has been underway since 2017 when plans for it were first announced and its original screeenwriters are on board to work on it.

Eddie Murphy said in a statement, “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 [Is My Name], and I’m looking forward to bringing all these classic and beloved characters back to the big screen.”

“Craig’s ability to create a distinct cinematic world with each of his films is not only impressive, but also what made him exactly the voice and vision we needed to bring this story to life,” Barris added in a statement. “From Hustle and Flow to his work with Eddie on Dolemite Is My Name, he never fails to blow me away. He is a true auteur and we couldn’t be more thrilled to have him on board.”

That Atiku speaks Fulfulde doesn’t make him a Fulani – Miyetti Allah

Nigeria News

The Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore Fulani has said for the fact that Atiku Abubakar speaks the language Fulfulde, does not mean that he is a full fledged Fulani Man.

Atiku, who made the claim during a campaign rally in Jigawa State, described Buhari as a fake Fulani man, saying, “a real Fulani man would not drag his followers into extreme poverty like what is happening under the All Progressives Congress administration.”

The National Secretary, Miyetti Allah, Mr Saleh Alhassan, however, stated that Buhari’s inability to speak Fulfulde did not make him any less of a Fulani man, The Punch reports.

Alhassan said:

“The truth of the matter is that, in several places in Adamawa State, they speak Fulfulde. The fact that Atiku speaks Fulfulde doesn’t make him a Fulani man.

“If you look at Atiku physically, he doesn’t carry the biological features of a Fulani man. You look at Atiku and you see the Bantu tribe. He doesn’t belong to the Sudanic tribe.

“Also, we don’t know Atiku’s uncle and all Fulani know their uncles. Have you ever seen Atiku’s uncle? His claim to Fulani background is shrouded in uncertainty because nobody knows his uncles. Buhari’s ‘Fulani-ness’ is not in doubt. His father was an Ardo, a Fulani leader. So, I think it is not an issue.”

The Fulani leader stated that his community had rejected Atiku in the elections because he “doesn’t share in our pains and problems,” adding that the PDP candidate wanted to “use our problems and campaign with them.”

He stated:

“Is Atiku not responsible for the crisis on the Mambilla Plateau? They went there, took over the land from the indigenous people and created mega farms and ranches, plunging them (Fulani) into poverty.

“If there is anybody that has created poverty, it is Atiku and the PDP. Over the 16 years they ruled this country, they virtually raped the country in a very shameful manner. It will be a disaster for Nigeria for Atiku to become president and I know God will not allow it because he doesn’t mean well for the poor people in this country.
