Akiley Love Reveals Her Ghanaian Roots Helped Her Audition For “Coming 2 America” Sequel
“Coming 2 America” actress, Akiley Love has disclosed she has Ghanaian roots which helped her get the role in the film
Speaking in a new interview, she shared that she had to fall back on her heritage during her audition for her role in the upcoming American comedy movie. Love plays the role of Princess Tinashe in “Coming 2 America”.
“My grandpa is actually from Ghana so it was really cool growing up and watching them walk around with this heavy accent. I would just sit down next to my grandma while she was on the phone talking in this different language. I had no idea what she would be saying,” revealed the 12-year old.
“And when my grandpa talks to me I talk back to him in his accent. So I have had so much practice and the fact that I actually got to do that at the auditions was fun. It was fun playing an African princess, and just putting Africa in a positive light and what it really is.”

“Was really fun doing this movie, walking around seeing all the big actors so casually. It was so much fun seeing all the amazing costumes on set,” remarked Love.
“It is a hilarious movie and I love watching it and being a part of it. Every single black person who watches it is going walk away feeling good because it shows him or her in a positive way, and it shows that they are really powerful. There is a lot of black excellence on screen.” She said.
Akiley Love is not the only African to feature in the star-studded sequel. South African model Nomzamo Mbatha plays Mirembe, a royal groomer to Lavelle, Akeem’s( Eddie Murphy) new-found son.
