Character

Akeem Joffer (Eddie Murphy) is the crown prince to the throne of the wealthy African nation of Zamunda. He lives a pampered lifestyle with every daily facet performed by servants. Akeem has become fed up with this and wishes to do more for himself.

The final straw comes when his parents, King Jaffe (James Earl Jones) and Queen Aeoleon (Madge Sinclair), present him with an arranged bride-to-be named Imani Izzi, whom he has never met and who has been trained to obey Akeem's every command.
