Osita Iheme is a Nigerian actor. He is widely known for playing the role of ‘Pawpaw’ in the film Aki na Ukwa alongside Chinedu Ikedieze. Osita Iheme has often been described as one of the best actors of his generation.
Being one of Nigeria’s finest actors, he has starred in movies that have gained global prominence and audience. Such movies includes: The Mirror Boy, Forgive Me Father 2, Mr Ibu and among others.
In an interview he recently had, the Nollywood star revealed that he doesn’t believe he has to meet Miss Right before he makes up his mind about settling down.
Unlike his comic half, Aki (Chinedu Ikedieze), Osita is still a bachelor, when asked why he has not followed Aki’s example, the comic actor looks confused and he is speechless for awhile.
While speaking on marriage he revealed that:
“Marriage is not something that anybody should rush into. I will get married at the right time. When it’s time for me to get married, you will know. You will be informed.”
The actor dismisses the rumour that he is still waiting for the proverbial Miss Right, saying;
“There is no Miss Right anywhere. I don’t believe that I should meet Miss Right before I make up my mind about marriage. Besides, there is no wife for anybody. Once you get somebody attached to you, she will become your wife.”
Despite the popularity that he enjoys among millions of movie fans across Nigeria, even beyond the country’s borders, Osita says that he has been publicly embarrassed by the same fans and admirers on some occasions.
Recalling a particular incident, which occurred somewhere in neighbouring Benin Republic, he says;
“An excited fan removed my cap and gave me a knock on my head. He said he had been seeing me in the movies and only wanted to confirm if I was really the one. Although I felt quite embarrassed by his behaviour, I let the incident pass because I could see that he acted out of excitement.”
