Chinedu Ikedieze, aka Aki, has debunked claims that he and Osita Iheme, aka Pawpaw, are at loggerheads.
The descent in the number of films the physically summarized thespians are cast together in recent times has triggered speculation about them not being on good terms.
Aki in an interview with Punch, put paid to the claims and set the record straight.
“I just finished shooting a film with my friend, Pawpaw. We have not been working together like in the past because we are both engaged in different projects. I am still shooting The Johnsons family series. When they gave us a month break, I quickly went to shoot two films with Pawpaw. I have kept many producers waiting, but some of them looked for other options. I am busy; Pawpaw is busy too.
“We don’t have any problem. I don’t like people carrying rumours, which explains why I don’t grant interviews any longer. The chemistry between me and Pawpaw is still there on and off the screen as he is more like a brother to me,” the 40-year-old told the paper.
