Hanks Anuku, a veteran Nollywood actor, is set to make his big screen debut in the new adaptation of comedy classic ‘Aki Na Ukwa.’
The actor, known for his gangster roles and fascinating accent, was just announced as the newest cast member to join the highly anticipated adaptation, which is slated to hit theaters on December 17, 2021.
The Stephen Oluboyo-created story, directed by ‘Breaded Life’ filmmaker Biodun Stephen, follows two naughty brothers who attempt to establish a life for themselves and then unexpectedly fall into the fame and wealth they have always desired thanks to social media. This welcomes them to a world filled with joys, pressures, falsehoods, deception, and enmity.
Chinedu Ikedieze and Osita Iheme will reprise their roles as naughty twin brothers from the first film in ‘Aki and Pawpaw,’ with Toyin Abraham, Anita Asuoha (Real Warri Pikin), Uti Nwachukwu, Stan Nze, MC Lively, Beverly Osu, Juliet Ibrahim, and Chioma Okafor.
In August, co-executive producer Charles Okpaleke revealed plans to “create an orchestration of wittily-told humor that will appeal with everyone.”
Chris Odeh, Mimi Bartels, and Agozie Agwu are the producers of ‘Aki and Pawpaw.’
