American actor and comedy legend Eddie Murphy made some interesting remarks about our very own Nomzamo Mbatha, with regards to their recent collaboration on the up coming “Coming 2 America” set to release this week.
The Beverly Hills Cop star told American reporters in Los Angeles that Nomzamo made him realise just awful his African accent is, when speaking as Akeem, the now King of the fictional province of Zamunda.
Eddie Murphy had to the following to say: “She’s a wonderful actress. Beautiful. We had a great time working together. She made me realise how shitty my accent is. I thought it was good but she came with a real one and I realised that mine is horrible,”
Reprising his role from the original film is no stretch for the international superstar comedian, but he felt obliged to give respect where it’s due and admit where it is that his craft needs improvement. All this thanks to our very own sensational Nomzamo Mbathat being in his presence long enough to do so.
Nomzamo continues to light the way with inspirational career path, and here’s looking forward to more stories of this nature, showcasing our own local talent in the most amazing ways possible.
