This is a situational comedy on the lives of two young bachelors and their partners. We see the ups and downs and intrigues of their relationships, the planning and scheming involved with the other ladies in their lives, jealousy, distrust etc. We however never get to see the marriages as they are always ‘About to Wed’. The couples Kwesi Mensah and Anne Fofo Akwetey, Fred Asamoah and Dzidudu Ofori- Atta are uniquely surrounded by an intriguing couple, Mr. & Mrs. Johnson, the next door neighbors who are quarrelling nearly all the time but whenever they are seen together they cut the picture of a very happy couple in love. This gives the bachelors more reason to grow cold feet continually.
The first season of this comedy series was shot in Ghana. The second season was actually shot in Nigeria with the introduction of 2 Nigerian cast members Sam Uche Anyamele and Uzoma Osimkpa to play the roles of Fred Asamoah and Anne Fofo Akwetey respectively thus bringing the sitcom closer to home. About to Wed has won multiple awards in Nigeria and is a delight for the younger generation.
