It’s no news that these duo actors have been bringing joy to our screen for years. Although they have retired from the “aki and pawpaw” phase, Nigerians will always remember them with fond memories.
Quite a number of their videos have been trending as memes on social media, particularly on twitter. In fact, this has brought recent international exposure to the duo as everyone is suddenly curiously as to who these talented actors are.
If you haven’t run into any of their memes on social media lately then you should probably refresh your page. (Lol)
We are honored to do a feature on these actors that made the early 2000s fun for us.
In 2003, Osita Iheme and Chinedu Ikedieze rose to fame when they starred together in the comedy film “Aki na Ukwa” which launched the roles of ‘Aki and Pawpaw’ to our television screens. In this movie, Iheme and Ikedieze played roles of mischievous children. They have played the roles of children in many of their earlier films but have recently adopted more mature roles.
If you missed some of their funny phase movies, then you are in luck. We are ready to take you down memory lane. Here is a list of the most interesting and hilarious movies they have starred in as Aki and pawpaw. You should definitely check them out.
