Nomzamo Mbatha lands leading role in Coming to America sequel
August is the women’s month, and South African women are breaking barriers. First it was singer Lira who became the first African woman to get honored with her own Barbie doll, rapper Sho Madjozi not only became the first South African woman to receive a BET award but her latest hit single John Cena got international recognition and now actress Nomazamo Mbatha has landed a lead role in the movie Coming 2 America.
Earlier this month, we reported that singer Lira became the first African woman to have a Barbie doll in her image. This was only the beginning of Mzansi women winning this month, last week; award-winning rapper Sho Madjozi wowed the world with her performance at the Colors studio. She performed her hit single, John Cena that garnered international recognition, more than a million YouTube views and it also started the now-viral John Cena challenge.
As we are still enjoying the John Cena challenge, USA based South African actress Nomzamo Mbatha has announced that she has secured the lead role in the sequel of Eddie Murphy’s Coming to America.
Set to star alongside big names like Eddie Murphy and Wesley Snipes, Mbatha took a moment to show her gratitude, she posted, “I’m rendered speechless to be part of a project of this magnitude and it being a classic, To God be the glory. It is truly unreal to me. The sacrifices have paid off.”
The Durban born star also encouraged young people to always put their trust in God, “This moment is bigger than me- this moment is for every single girl who doubts herself of just how big her God is. My life is a testimony to that. My life says God is bigger than ginormous.
“I am grateful; I am humbled, I am honored to be cast into Coming 2 America.” She concluded the post.
