The ‘Coming to America’ sequel introduces Prince Akeem’s extended family

In Coming to America, Akeem (Eddie Murphy) came to Queens to find love. Now, he is married to Lisa (Shari Headley) with daughters, but discovers he had a son from an encounter in Queens. Leslie Jones plays Mary, a woman Akeem met before Lisa. 

“The character is me,” Jones said. “Seriously, just so ghetto, so free in life. You ain’t gotta take care of me. I’ll take care of me. I didn’t need no prince to raise my son. Oh, you’re here now. … It was just so easy to play because it was just one of those characters that you do embrace. I love these type of characters that are in a movie that are going to join everybody together. Just carefree. Yeah, girl, I’m sorry for sleeping with your man.”

Their son is Lavelle, who Akeem takes back to Zamunda after coming to America one more time, to teach him how to be a prince. Jermaine Fowler plays Lavelle.
