The original movie, “Aki na Ukwa”, released in 2002 which shot both into limelight, gave them their popular household names.

Similarly Nigerian filmmaker, Charles Okpaleke, had on Wednesday announced the remake of the 2002 classic on his Instagram page with a poster that read, “Aki & Paw Paw… coming to cinemas soon.”

The pair appear ready to deliver both a TV series and a movie as requested by their fans.
