However his father, James Earl Jones’ ailing King Jaffe, tells him he has a son in the US from his time in New York.
The 1988 original featured Akeem and his best friend Semmi – played by Arsenio Hall – travelling to Queens to find the prince a wife.
When told they must go back to the US, Semmi replies: “Oh hell no, your majesty,”
Sequel Coming 2 America features Leslie Jones as the mother of Akeem’s son Lavelle, who is played by Jermaine Fowler.
KiKi Layne, Tracy Morgan and Wesley Snipes also star.
Coming 2 America will stream on Amazon Prime Video after the streaming giant bought the rights from Paramount Pictures.
It will begin streaming in the UK on March 5.
