    The new movie continues to follow the story of the two mischievous brothers as their strife for success eventually paid off and they became celebrities.

    The writer of the new movie, Oluboyo says about it:

    Why Are Nigerians Worried?

    The Original Aki na Ukwa

    After learning information about the new movie, a lot of people are worried that modernizing the Aki na Ukwa story will not allow it to be as interesting as the earlier one.

    The comments on the video are now turned off, but some people have been asking why Aki and Pawpaw have to be celebrities in the new one? That why can’t they just be local village kids as they were in the first one because that is what made the first one funny.

    I even saw this meme online that somebody created saying:

    Personally, I’m just hoping the new movie will be interesting irrespective of if they end up being in the village or in the city. A lot of these Nollywood movie remakes have been overtly modernizing the stories so much so that when you’re watching, even though the cameras are better and the effects are better, the stories are not as interesting and dramatic as the way the olden days ones used to be. I think I agree with people when they say that they hope modernizing Aki and Pawpaw doesn’t spoil it.

    What do you think? Are you worried now that Aki and Pawpaw are going to be rich celebrities in the new film, or do you think it’s better the producers of the movie kept them as funny village boys? Let me know your thoughts by leaving a comment .
