Storyline

Set in New York city, the plot explores ethnic prejudice amongst the various black communities in America when a Nigerian playboy deals with the consequences after abandoning his American sweetheart for an arranged wife from back home. Ade (Igoni Archibong) is a playboy Nigerian-American investment banker in New York City. He is in a relationship with keen-to-marry African-American Stacey (K.D. Aubert). Her family (Ernie Hudson, Cynda Williams) had been cautious of this "African" but begins to warm to him due to his professional success and charm.

He is tricked into visiting Nigeria only to discover an arranged marriage had already been conducted on his behalf with a complete stranger. Reluctantly, Ade accepts the new wife, Grace (Jackie Appiah), since she is beautiful and seems ... Written by Anonymous
