Lamar Jackson is unhappy about Eric Kofi-Abrefa’s character from BMF being named Lamar

Black Mafia Family revolves around the real-life origin story of two brothers in 1980s Detroit who rose to become one of the most influential crime families. Lamar Silas, played by Eric Kofi-Abrefa, is a cold-blooded maniac who shows no remorse. Eric Kofi-Abrefa’s character is literally the embodiment of a human being with no virtues.

Not divulging further into the plot, one thing is certain that his character is amongst the most dislikable character in the entire series. Lamar Jackson, who shares his name with the character, was obviously disappointed by the parallel. Hence, he took to Twitter to share his disappointment. “Why buddy from BMF got my name,” he angrily tweeted.

After the disappointing outing against the Bengals, Jackson spoke to the press and explained how individual mistakes, especially his, cost them the game. He pointed out three turnovers that shouldn’t have happened and hoped that they learn and do better next time.

“Coach had to make that decision. I was cool with it for sure. Just trying to protect us and stuff like that, so I was cool with it. But it’s definitely tough. I hate losing. You don’t wanna see the score tilted and stuff like that for sure.”
