Steve Harvey Pays Homage to ‘Coming To America’
Eddie Murphy created a cultural gem with Coming To America.
The film birthed a variety of memorable characters and scenes. Among them were Randy Watson and his group Sexual Chocolate and his mic drop, and we certainly can’t forget “Prince Akeem’s” arranged marriage to Princess Imani. Vanessa Bell Calloway rebooted the look in late April and had the web going crazy.
A Coming To America– themed anything will never get old and this year, Steve Harvey decided to recreate the movie for Halloween on an upcoming episode of his daily talk show. But, he didn’t just end it at dressing up like King Jaffe Joffer (James Earl Jones’ character), he went all out with the set design and a few of the original cast members. Plus, in celebration of the movie, Steve will give one lucky audience member, an all-expense paid trip to South Africa!
