Zamunda flag draped across London’s National Gallery to celebrate Coming 2 America release

Amazon Prime Video is celebrating the release of Coming 2 America in the most regal way possible – by draping flags of Zamunda over the some of the most iconic landmarks in Europe.

Well, King Akeem Joffer wouldn’t expect anything less.

To honour Eddie Murphy’s comedy sequel premiering on Amazon Prime Video today, London’s National Gallery was decorated with the black, green and yellow flag, which included a portrait of Prince Akeem.

As you do.

Sir Trevor McDonald got in on the action, appearing in a spoof news broadcast for the Zamunda News Network.

‘Breaking news: King Akeem Joffer of the glorious African nation Zamunda has purchased Trafalgar Square’s iconic National Gallery,’ he said. ‘That’s a mad flex, let me tell you.

‘Using his vast fortune, the King has hung a flag over the gallery entrance to celebrate the purchase.’

A mad flex indeed.

Clara Amfo also took part in the broadcast, telling viewers: ‘Yes, His Royal Highness King Akeem is quite literally flying the flag for Zamunda right here at the National Gallery.

‘It really is a big old flag and has caused quite the stir with passers-by, who are either shocked or pleasantly surprised.’

The London landmark wasn’t the only venue to get the royal treatment, as Munich’s Hofbräuhaus, the Petis Palais in Paris, the Sanremo Casino in Sanremo, and the Royal Theatre in Madrid were also spruced up.

Eddie reprised his role as Akeem in the comedy, following on from the wildly successful Coming To America in 1988.

Spilling the beans on the flick, which was released today, he revealed that his favourite character to play in the film is actually Randy Watson.


Not only that, but the Hollywood legend could do an entire film on Mr Sexual Chocolate himself.

Chatting to the Sunday Project, he confessed that there’s just one issue – all the different looks means he spends hours in a make-up chair.

‘The one I get the biggest kick out of seeing on screen is Randy Watson. I could do a whole movie of him,’ he said.

‘Every time I’m on a make-up movie, I’m like, “Never again. I’m never doing it again.”

‘And some kind of way I wind up doing it. But this one is the last time.’

We’ll have to see about that…

Coming 2 America is available to stream on Amazon Prime Video now.
