Akan (Alexx Ekubo) returned to Nigeria after studying in the U.S. where he met his fiancée Sophia (Venita Akpofure). Sophia hadn’t been to Nigeria since her childhood but her engagement to Akan was reason to travel with him in order to meet his parents for the first time.
At the initial introduction, Akan’s father didn’t take a liking to her. Sophia was a Nigerian with an American flair and she was unfamiliar with the Nigerian culture. In addition, she didn’t cook, clean, or speak the Ibibio language.
Sophia was too much of a modern woman and Akan’s father preferred that he marry a woman that was familiar with Nigerian traditions. He contacted his brother, Sunny (Ime “Bishop” Umoh), and the two schemed to find Akan a “decent” girl.
Sunny came up with Mbong (Grace Johnson), who was a girl that he knew from a local shop. Mbong moved into Akan’s home shortly after meeting him with the idea that she and Akan would hook up. Akan’s father paid for her upkeep but unbeknownst to the family, Sunny made an agreement with her to get a cut of any money she received.
Things didn’t work out as planned. Akan wasn’t attracted to Mbong and he refused to allow historical customs to run his life. Mbong turned out to be an airhead and she caused a ruckus when she exposed Sunny’s underhanded ways.
