Because of his on-screen chemistry with Osita Iheme, veteran Nollywood actor Chinedu Ikedieze, called Aki, claims that people “thought we were twins.”
He claimed that despite having similar heights and playing naughty characters in movies, they are different from one another in important ways.
This was said by the 45-year-old actor during a recent interview with Naija Mouth-Piece.
He claimed, “People always want to meet both of us [Osita Iheme and I] because they have this mental image of our mischievousness from the movies playing out in real life in their thoughts.
“But since I am Chinedu Ikedieze and he is Osita Iheme, that wasn’t a restriction for me. Even though we play together a lot, I do have a few attributes or characteristics that set me apart a little. He has characteristics of his own as well that set him apart from me in various ways.
But people would want to see us together in movies, so…When I leave for a function, sometimes the audience would ask, “Where is your brother? Why did he not accompany you?
“Due to our on-screen chemistry, many people believed we were twins. Therefore, they don’t think we could ever lead separate lives. Every time they see one, they automatically assume that the other is there as well.
