Veteran Nollywood actor, Chinedu Ikedieze, popularly known as Aki, has said that his onscreen synergy with Osita Iheme, also known as pawpaw, was what made many “thought we are twins”.
He said despite their similarities in height and mischievous movie roles, they have unique qualities that distinguish them from each other.
The 45-year-old thespian stated this in a recent interview with Naija Mouth-Piece.
“Whenever people want to see one of us (me and Osita Iheme), they would always want to see the two of us because they have that imagination of our mischievousness in the movies playing out in real life in their mindset.
“But that wasn’t a limitation for me because I am Chinedu Ikedieze, and he is Osita Iheme. As much as we play together, I have some qualities or traits that differentiate me a little bit.
“He has his own too that differentiates him a little bit from me when it comes to some things.
“But when it comes to the movies, people would want to see us together…Sometimes I will go for an event, and they (fans) would say, ‘Where is your brother? Why didn’t he come with you?’
“Because of our synergy in movies, people thought we are twins. So, they don’t believe that we could ever have seperate lives. They always believe that whenever you see one, you must see the other.”
