Nomzamo Mbatha makes Mzansi proud in the Coming 2 America scenes

Coming 2 America is a movie that features black actors, comedians, musicians, and public figures. The movie is a sequel to the 1988 Eddie Murphy "Coming to America", Murphy has been the subject of the black celebrities who never use their fame and money to promote fellow blacks so the second Coming to America was more of makeup for his past criticism. The 1988 movies were heavily criticized because of their worst depiction of Africa, the stereotypes acted with people that have a deep American accent in fact deeper than the white American themselves.

So this time around the producers make sure to tone down the Black American Liberalism by bringing actors that are a true reflection of Africa in accent and dressing as well as culture. Nomzamo Mbatha is that package in one and she didn't disappoint. The Durban-born actress said that it was her honor to portray Africa in a better light, unlike the old movies where we were stereotyped as savages coming from caves or huts.

I won't say much about the movie or even review it today because most people haven't watched it but it's now available on Netflix.
