Award Show: Jidenna Performs “Chief Don’t Run” and “A Little Bit More” at the BET Awards 2016 Pre Show

The opening of Jidenna’s 2016 BET Awards Pre-Show performance was inspired by the airport/cab scene in the movie Coming to America. Jidenna as Prince Akeem Joffer and Nana Kwabena as Semmi payed homage to the movie’s  28th anniversary.
