Diminutive actors, Chinedu Ikedieze and Osita Iheme, popularly known as Aki and Paw paw, are renowned for holding on to their bond of friendship with utmost respect. This has not only seen them pairing in countless home videos, but have literally had them living like Siamese twins in the showbiz industry.
It is on record that they share the same room during recording trips, the same meals, and even the same jointly-furnished apartment inside the Lagos State Property Development Corporation (LSDPC) Estate in Ogba, Lagos.
But NFC sources squealed that things are fast changing for the actors as they continue to mature into full adulthood. Contrary to rumours being peddled in town that the duo have been having a row over the MON award conferred on Chinedu Ikedieze (one of the pair) by the President Goodluck Jonathan led government, the duo decided to live apart, owing to Chinedu IKedieze’s fiery urge to settle down with his current girl friend.
To this end, Aki as he is fondly called, has moved out of the LSPDC Estate, Ogba for another choice apartment, located within Unity Estate in Ojodu, Lagos, while Osita has also found himself an apartment at the Omole area in Lagos.
According to Chinedu Ikedieze, there is no bad blood between him and Osita, contrary to what some sections of the media have been speculating. He told NFC that maturity was responsible for the reason why both of them had to part ways in terms of sharing an apartment.
“As we grow and mature, there is no doubt that our priorities will begin to change. And two people do not have the same priorities all the time, so it is just natural that a balance must be struck. “
