Akanni and His Proposal is the tale of Akanni a.k.a Baba Sewa, a disgruntled pensioner who has hatched a brilliant plan. A victim of Nigerian politics; he decides to do a little politicking himself but this is all dependent on his daughter’s acceptance of the proposal; and if he can convince one of the state’s thieving politicians to marry his teenage ambitious daughter – Sewa, then there will be a change in his life.
