Nollywood actor, Chinedu Ikedieze, aka Aki, says that though poverty used to be his greatest fear, it no longer scares him.
The actor also noted that though he and his colleague, Osita Iheme, Pawpaw, played a lot of stereotypical roles in the early years of their career, they were just doing their jobs. He said, “It is nothing. We were just enjoying ourselves as actors. Although some people may call it stereotypical roles, they should understand that we were paid to interpret those roles, and we did that convincingly.”
Speaking about his relationship with the late Ada Ameh, with whom he acted on the popular television series, ‘The Johnsons’, he said, “The Johnsons’, for me, is not just a sitcom but a platform through which we – both the cast and crew – have come together to become a family. This explains how much we mean to one another. Ada’s case was exceptional because as a character, she dominated the family with her motherly role.
