Veteran Nollywood star Chinedu Ikedieze, often known as Aki, has claimed that he and Osita Iheme’s on-screen chemistry led many to mistake them for twins.
In a recent interview with Naija Mouth-Piece, the actor made this claim.
According to Ikedieze, despite sharing the same height and playing mischievous characters in movies, they are different people because of their distinct personalities.
According to the 45-year-old, people often ask about Iheme’s whereabouts when he goes to an event without him.
He said, “Whenever people want to see one of us [me and Osita Iheme], they would always want to see the two of us because they have that imagination of our mischievousness in the movies playing out in real life in their mindset.
But that wasn’t a limitation for me because I am Chinedu Ikedieze, and he is Osita Iheme. As much as we play together, I have some qualities or traits that differentiate me a little bit. He has his own, too, that differentiates him a little bit from me when it comes to some things.
“But when it comes to the movies, people would want to see us together…Sometimes I will go for an event, and they [fans] would say, ‘Where is your brother? Why didn’t he come with you?’
“Because of our synergy in movies, people thought we were twins. So, they don’t believe that we could ever have separate lives. They always believe that whenever you see one, you must see the other.”
