The first is Dammy (TEMIDAYO ENITAN) who did dirty deals while in America in order to be able to send millions of Naira to Funmi to save her mum who had a hole in the heart. Dammy went to prison afterwards and was unable to communicate with Funmi who was unaware of his predicament . Funmi after waiting for four years for Dammy without hearing a word from him, moved on with her life. She met Femi (Niyi Johnson),the son of a senator and they started their love affair. Femi while dating Funmi saves her father with millions of naira when he had kidney problem. Now, both men want to marry her.

Funmi’s father (Wale Korede) is down with serious illness when his wife known as Funmi’s mother (Lola Idije) and daughter- Funmi (Aishat Lawal) go visit him at the hospital. Funmi’s mother without letting the doctor say what her husband is suffering from starts blabbing that he is either suffering from typhoid or shortage of blood, but the doctor tells her it is none of them. The doctor tells them that they should come see her in the office which terrifies Funmi’s mum as she feels that whatever bill they will be required to pay will be too much for the family who do not have any money to pay.
Meanwhile Funmi’s father’s younger brother known as Uncle (Adekola Tijani) hears about his brother’s sickness and stops by at his house to get update on his sickness. He sees his elder brother’s son-Tolu (Toyosi Fasae) and asks if his brother is dead or receiving drip but Tolu tells him that they should go to the hospital to know his current health condition.
Funmi, Tolu and Uncle are deliberating on how to get money to fly Funmi’s daddy to India for kidney transplant. Funmi says she can’t get loan from bank because she has no means of paying back the money. Uncle advices that they should sell his brother’s property and use it to prepare for his funeral so they can buy coffin, cow and cloth rather than spend the money in curing him when his survival is not certain. Both Tolu and Funmi are so disappointed at his suggestion.
Funmi and her rich boyfriend- Femi (Niyi Johnson) go and see the doctor. The doctor tells them that they need a kidney donor as well as 50 million naira for the operation. Femi promises to pay half of the money immediately and then look for the remaining half to balance the bill.
Funmi, Tolu and Uncle thank Femi for paying all their father’s hospital bill, though Uncle fears that the kidney donor may come back to request for his kidney back. They all ignore his jabberings as they are used to his manner of talking.
Femi wants to organise a welcome back party for his father in law to be. He meets with one of his friends to link him up with an event planner who happens to be Funmi’s former boyfriend Dammy ( Temitayo Enitan) whom she lost contact with after he travelled to America. Femi invites Dammy over to his father in law’s home so he can get some information on how he would want his welcome party to be like.
