Popular Nigerian singer David Adeleke, better known as Davido has had quite a social media comeback. The singer who released his banging new single FEM and left social media buzzing is set to feature in a Hollywood movie.
Coming To America 2 - the sequel to its original released in 1988 - is set to be released on December 17, 2020 and our very own superstar singer is part of the amazing cast.
The Hollywood movie which has continued to make waves since the 1980s stars actors like Eddie Murphy, Arsenio Hall, James Earl Jones, and Paul Bates as its main cast.
The movie will feature alongside some of the part 1 cast including top Hollywood actors and artistes like Jermaine Fowler, Wesley Snipes, Tracy Morgan, Leslie Jones, KiKi Layne, Rick Ross, Luenell, Rotimi, Teyana Taylor and Michael Blackson.
In the sequel, former Prince Akeem is set to become King of Zamunda when he discovers he has a son he never knew about in America – a street-savvy Queens native named Lavelle. Honouring his father’s dying wish to groom this son as the crowned prince, Akeem and Semmi set off to America.
Meanwhile, shortly after Davido released FEM that saw him return to social media, reviews have been coming in from Nigerians.
In just four days of the song's release, it has gathered over 10m views and over 11,000 comments on YouTube. While some people described the song as one of Davido's best, others stated that it was overhyped and offered nothing.
A few days ago, a Twitter user called Seyifunmi took to his page to react to the song and how it pulled such a huge amount of views on YouTube.
According to him, when the hype around the Davido's new single is down, he would talk about how the singer pulled the biggest robbery on the video-sharing platform with the song.
