Acclaimed pop star, Davido has revealed that he will be making his Hollywood debut in the forthcoming comedy classic, Coming to America 2.
The ‘Fall’ singer tweeted on Monday, September 14 that he couldn’t wait for the movie to be released.
The movie comes as the sequel to the original film of 1988.
Coming to America 2 is set for release on December 18, 2020 in the United States.
Like the original movie, stars like Eddie Murphy, Arsenio Hall, James Earl Jones, and Paul Bates retain their roles as the main characters.
News of Davido’s appearance in the movie first broke in September 2019 after Michael Blackson congratulated Davido on Twitter.
“Davido told me he has a performance scene in the movie #ComingToAmerica2, congrats homie,” Blackson wrote.
Davido made his Nollywood debut in a 2015 movie titled John Zerebe.
Coming to America 2, however, is produced by Kevin Misher and directed by Craig Brewer, from a screenplay by David Sheffield, Barry W. Blaustein, and Kenya Barris, based on characters created by Eddie Murphy.
Filming officially began on August 17, 2019 in Atlanta, Georgia.
