BET’s “Sistas” & “Zatima” Star Devale Ellis is sending love to one of his inspirations when it comes to acting this week and we’re here for the interaction!!

Devale has spoke many times about how his character Zac is heavily influenced by the iconic Martin Lawrence character on “Martin”.

He recently took to Instagram to share his love and support for Martin after receiving a star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame.

Devale shared:

“Congrats to one of my biggest inspirations. The man that does NOT get enough credit for his impact on the world of comedy by merging to iconic art forms (stand up & hip hop) and bringing it to a mainstream audience unapologetically.

It is no secret that I constantly pay homage to Marty Mar in the way I bring physical comedy to the role of Zac on SISTAS & Zatima. Martin is an icon, a genius and my GOAT. So happy to see you get this star sir. I’ll be there one day, and imma be posed just like this. 

Salute @martinlawrence!!!”

We absolutely love this. How cool would it be for Devale and Martin to film a movie together or have Martin guest star on “Sistas” or “Zatima”!?

Tyler Perry should make this happen!

Zatima Season 2 is now streaming on BET+.


“Zac and Fatima’s relationship is challenged on a whole new level” in Season 2. “Zac deals with internal discord which is only exacerbated after seeing his mother, Gladys, whom he hasn’t seen in quite a long time. Fatima begins to question herself and if she’s really what Zac needs when she can’t get through to him about dealing with past issues.”

Zatima‘s cast includes Devale Ellis as Zac, Crystal Renee Hayslett as Fatima, Cameron Fuller as Nathan, Remington Hoffman as Bryce, Nzinga Imani as Angela, Jasmin Brown as Deja, Guyviaud Joseph as Tony, Danielle LaRoach as Belinda and Marquita Goings as Valerie.
