Jermaine Fowler Biography

Jermaine Fowler was born on the 16th of May 1988 in Washington DC United States to Jerome Sr and Marsha. He is a comedian, actor, entrepreneur and writer. Jermaine Fowler rose to stardom following his appearance in Coming to America 2 starring Eddie Murphy. He played a key role in the movie as Eddie Murphy’s bastard/illegitimate son (Lavelle Junson) who was lost but found and made heir to the throne. The 2021 movie Coming to America 2 is the sequel to the 1988 version of the movie which was a hit worldwide when it was first released.

Jermaine Fowler has featured in quite a number of movies but Coming to America 2 is by far the movie that made him become known globally. His role in the movie saw him act as Lavelle Junson, an unemployed, obscure man in his 30s in Queens New York struggling to make a living and get a job. However, his life was turned round for the better when two “ordinary” looking men (Eddie Murphy as Akeem and Arsenio Hall as Semmi) approached him and revealed to him that he was in fact the heir to the throne of Zamunda – a prosperous African nation.

Jermaine Fowler’s role as Lavelle Junson saw his life turned around as he suddenly turned from an unemployed, young black man to a privileged prince. The movie plot showed him travel to Zamunda with his mother to the welcoming arms of the kingdom and to an unwelcoming hand of the unsuspecting wife of King Akeem (Eddie Murphy)

Coming to America 2

Jermaine Fowler’s acting in the movie Coming to America was a mixture of hilarious comic remarks, intertwined, conflicting cultures of a young man raised in New York and suddenly having to deal with African traditions and the traditions of Zamunda some of which included plucking the whiskers of a lion, enduring a painful circumcision experience, having to deal with different people in the bathroom and many more! This said, it is no doubt Jermaine Fowler played his role well as Lavelle Junson prince of Zamunda.
