Nollywood veteran Chinedu Ikedieze celebrates his birthday on , Friday 12th December and fans have been seeking to know his real age.
Aki as he is fondly called was born in 1977 which means he is 41 years old today. Surprised???
Ikedieze harboured dreams of being a doctor or lawyer but changed his mind after he joined his secondary school’s Dramatic Society. After his secondary school education, Chinedu proceeded to study Mass Communications at the Institute of Management & Technology in Enugu State. There he joined the theatre group and actively took part in the group’s activities, using the opportunity to hone his craft.
After graduation, Chinedu Ikedieze featured in his first big screen feature in 1998, playing a minor role in Evil Men. He featured in few more movies afterwards, and eventually had his big break in the 2002 movie, Aki na Ukwa, playing the role of Aki the mischievous child alongside Osita Iheme, who acted as Pawpaw, his partner in wicked deeds in the movie. The duo have solidified the name Aki & PawPaw in the Nigerian movie industry.
Ikedieze is married to Nneoma Ikedieze. Before the wedding, they dated for three years and had a lot of time to get to know each other better. Their traditional wedding between the actor and his then fiancee, Nneoma Nwaijah took place on November 26, 2011 in his fiancee’s hometown – Isala Mbano in Imo State, Nigeria.
