In continuation of his rib-cracking and havoc wrecking adventures in 30 Days in Atlanta, A Trip to Jamaica, and 10 Days in Sun City, Ayo Makun reprises his role as Akpos in the soon to be released Christmas in Miami.
This ‘mini’ Olympics of a Christmas is a multi-ethnic story of unity in diversity. It celebrates how we are all different, but the same, or how we are all ‘same difference’. It reminds us that Christmas transcends skin colour and racial barriers. It’s a rib-tickling comedy that aims to unite borders by helping each of the nations represented to also debunk long-held negative stereotypes and perceptions that the general public always had about them.
This time, Akpos jets off with his family to an exotic island in Miami, Florida, to represent Nigeria at the Intercontinental Christmas Fiesta, a unifying fiesta that will bring together six families from six very diverse nations across five continents to spend the week leading up to Christmas together.
Shot by Teddy Albert, the comedy stars Ayo Makun (AY), Tanya Price, Richard Mofe-Damijo (RMD), Osita Iheme, IK Ogbonna, Manoj Chandra, Isaiah Samuel Garcia, Catherine Olsen, Sterling Royston, Verne Alexandre, Barry Piacente, Raquel Lamanna, Carlos Valentino, Malcolm Burchett, Kent Morita, Anthony Gaita, Bryan Jimenez, Caroline Schwitzky, Julia Sun, Justin Deavers, Lyla Chaubal, Nilda LéDix Pagán, Trico Fullerton, Nadya Marie Yurawecz, Sarah Waters, Diego Imperiale, Dazzly Rizo, Desiree Farnum, and Andrew Eberline.
The story was written by Keni Ogunlola, produced by Darlington Abuda, and directed by Robert Peters. Christmas in Miami is the fourth instalment in the Akpos film series, and it will be released in cinemas nationwide on December 24, 2021.
