The duo are known as “Aki and Paw Paw.” He has featured in over 150 films. Ikedieze has acted in the role of a kid in most of his movies during his early career due to his physical appearance.

The Struggles, the journey to stardom, keeping up with stardom, wonderful health and my QUALITY FREE -TO- AIR LIFE at no cost

“You See Why I’m Shining My Teeth? Oya let’s celebrate…its my BIRTHDAY. Cake gifted to me by @maritos.cakes.”

Other terms of reference of the committee, according to the deputy governor, include identifying orphans and widows in the affected local government areas and suggesting the kind of assistance to be provided to the victims by the government. Others include determining the source of financing for the project and co-opting any other individuals that may assist in the conduct of the committee’s assignment.
