How will the professor react to the incompetent plumber who destroys his kitchen pipes while fixing it?
How does Olaniyi, the nkwobi merchant, treat the guest who comes to eat at his restaurant and refuses to pay?
The answers to these questions will be provided viewers in the first entertaining episode of the new season.
Work Men will feature the usual characters such as Kanayo O.
