Prince Amukamara did a Reddit AMA on Sunday, and the Giants cornerback was asked about his favorite Eli Manning story:

If you recall, Semmi (according to IMDB,¬†Amukamara spelled it wrong) was the disobedient servant played by Arsenio Hall who wired home for money to trick out the apartment against Prince Akeem’s will. Amukamara, who was born in the United States, has Nigerian-born parents and has royal bloodlines; he could serve as the Chief of an 800,000 person village in the future.

Wouldn’t it have been a little more appropriate to go with Prince Akeem? He was the actual royal family member. Plus, unlike Semmi’s predilection for girls in hot tubs, Amukamara has talked about remaining a virgin and avoiding alcohol.

Maybe Amukamara disseminated the wrong nickname?
