Veteran Nollywood actors, Chinedu ”Aki” Ikedieze and Osita ”Pawpaw” Iheme, are set to release a new series titled Fatty and Sons.
Iheme took to his Instagram page on Thursday, May 13 to make the announcement as he posted pictures of himself and other co-stars.
He wrote, “You guys asked for a TV series; so, here you have it. This time, we are adding Amala and Ewedu to the menu.
“The title is Fatty and Sons Autos. Where Una go watch am?”
Ikedieze also announced the new series on his IG page.
”You want a tv series so here you have it! We’re adding zobo to the palm wine this time 😂 @muyiwa.adegoke”, he wrote.
The new TV series will feature other Nollywood stars such as Muyiwa Adegoke, Chinedu Ani Emmanuel, Saeed Muhammed, among others.
Recall that the comic duo had earlier hinted on returning to reprise their roles as the mischievous child actors on a project like old times.
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.
