Barely a month after his pal Aki tied the nuptial knot, Nollywood reports say Osita Iheme has also found love and may be heading for the altar very soon.

Many thought that the diminutive duo couldn’t get women to marry due to their sizes. But it is now obvious that getting a woman to marry goes beyond height. After Aki’s marriage, questions were raised about when his friend Pawpaw will also marry.

Nigeriafilms.com reported that Pawpaw was so happy for Aki’s decision to marry and added that he had equally found love. But when pressed to reveal the identity of the woman rocking his world, he declined to comment. He rather appealed to us to be patient. “I am in serious relationship,” was all he said.

Osita is arguably one of the best actors in Nollywood. He is widely known for playing the role of ‘Pawpaw’ in the film ‘Aki na Ukwa’, alongside Chinedu Ikedieze.

In 2007, Osita received the Lifetime Achievement Award at the African Movie Academy Awards. He is considered one of Nigeria’s most famous actors.

Recently, he was awarded the Nigeria National Honour of Member of the Order of the Federal Republic (MFR). “It’s exciting and great to be so chosen amongst millions of eminent Nigerians. When I missed it last year, I told people my own is coming. And finally it’s here.

So, I am so, so happy. I thank President Goodluck Jonathan for his honour. I promise I won’t disappoint. It’s now Aki and Pawpaw MFR. God is the greatest,” he recently said about the award.

Credited with over 100 movies, and on high demand as a performing artiste, Pawpaw is one of the richest actors in Nollywood.
He lives in an estate in Ogba, Ikeja axis of Lagos while he and Chinedu (Aki) are building a twin duplex in Lagos. Both have also completed their buildings in Aba, Enyimba City, Abia State.
