Veteran music executive and Chief Executive of Universal Music South Africa and Sub Saharan Africa Sipho Dlamini in an article with Variety explained growing up in Africa, one of the first Hollywood movies to make an impact on was Eddie Murphy’s 1988 comedy “Coming to America."
In the movie, the comedian starred as a prince from the fictional African country of Zamunda.
“I know how significant a movie it was to people living in Africa or Africans in the diaspora," Dlamini said.
'Rhythms of Zamunda: Music Inspired By Coming 2 America' is scheduled for release March 5, 2021.
The album’s 16 tracks are comprised of African artists from across the diaspora: “We wanted to bring our knowledge of the music from the continent that is coming up and affecting the youth globally — it’s not just Afrobeat,” Dlamini said.
