Popular Nollywood actor, Osita Iheme, who is renowned for his numerous comic roles, has opened up on why he has remained unmarried.
Osita Iheme, who is known all over Nigeria as PawPaw, has responded to allegations that he and his ‘twin’ in the industry, Chinedu Ikedieze alias Aki, are having some misunderstanding which sprung up after the latter got married, even as he addressed the issue of his continuous state of bachelorhood.
The actor is still enjoying life as a bachelor when colleague and close friend, Chinedu Ikedieze, also known as Aki, has been married for over six years. There had been speculations that the duo are at loggerheads as they haven’t been seen together in movies and social gatherings ‘as usual’.
Denying the reports, the Imo state-born pint sized actor told the Sun, “There is nothing really going on between us. There is no movie to feature both of us so we have been doing our stuff separately. If any producer wants us together in his movie, then we shall do it as usual.”
When asked why he is still enjoying life as a bachelor when Aki has been married for over six years, Pawpaw said he was taking his time.
He said, “Marriage is not a step to be taken because other people are taking it.
“Even if the person is your twin, you don’t have to do it just because he did it. It is something you do when you are ready. I’ll take that step when I’m fully ready,” the 33-year-old comic actor stated.
