Nigerian media personality, Linda Ikeji has taken to social media to berate the storyline of the American movie, Coming 2 America.
According to Linda Ikeji, the plot of the movie is shabby and the sequel which was released on Thursday, March 5 was needless.
Taking to her Instagram page, the media entrepreneur expresses doubt that the movie was produced by a giant film production company.
The mother of one also added that the sequel comes nothing close to the classic.
In her words:
“Coming 2 America..lol. I doubt any big studio was behind it.
Looks like something Eddy Murphy raised little money for and called his comedy friends to join.
Locations at Rick Ross home & Tyler Perry studio.
Weak storyline & plot. A good laugh but nothing close to the classic. 3/10”
