Celebrity Interviews

Coming To America 2 w/ Eddie Murphy is coming according to John Amos

TV legend John Amos stopped by Sway In The Morning and spoke to us about his upcoming book and what has led him to this point.

The Newark-native began by explaining the root of his departure with Good Times. Amos had issues with the script-writing of the mostly-white writers of the show. He continually voiced his critiques of the script, which were not appreciated by the team. This led to his release before the start of season four.

His latest project, A World Without Color, is a children’s book about racial division. The story follows a child in a town called Blakesville. Blakesville, and everyone in the town, are grey. Through interaction, the characters begin to bring color into their lives.

Check out the full interview above and get the details on more of his upcoming projects.


Icon of hip-hop culture and a pivotal part of the MTV News team, Sway has been a staple of the music-news arena for more than a decade. From giving Eminem, Notorious B.I.G. and Tupac their very first radio airplay on his local show in the mid-’90s to providing television viewers with their first good look at some of today’s hottest celebrities in music, film, fashion and sports. Sway has been there for some of music and the world’s biggest moments.
