How Nollywood veterans, Chinedu Ikedieze and Osita Iheme met for the first time

Chinedu Ikedieze and Osita Iheme came to the limelight following the massive reception of the popular Nollywood movie, ‘Aki na Ukwa’ which featured them as Aki and Paw Paw.

Before that movie, the Nollywood duo met for the first time in a hotel in the heart of Enugu where they both came for an audition. At the audition, they kept glaring at each other in the presence of other actors. Because of their unique size, Chinedu Ikedieze and Osita Iheme formed the center of attraction at the audition ground.

The actors turned to live characters at the audition ground to the astonishment of the director and producer present. This heralded their big break in the Nollywood industry as the producer made a smart move of inventing a script that featured both actors and that script was titled ‘Aki na Ukwa’. The rest became history as they went ahead to churn out great movies.

It is good to note that both actors studied the same course in the university. Chinedu Ikedieze (Aki) studied Mass Communication at the Institute of Management Technology, Enugu. Osita Iheme (Paw Paw) studied the same course at the Enugu State University.
