"Why Should I Ask God For Creating Me Like This?"--Actor Chinedu Ikedieze(Aki)

Actor Chinedu Ikedieze needs no introduction. popularly known as Aki after his movie with his co-star Osita Iheme(pawpaw). Chinedu Ikedieze has featured in many home videos and married to his heart throb Nneoma Ikedieze. In his recent interview with Yes magazine, the graduate of mass communication of IMT Enugu talked about his reason of not blaming God for the way he was created. Read below...  

Are you planning to open a new movie production company or working on an existing one?

I have a movie production company already and I have a plan of releasing movies from the stable of my production company.

What were some of those notable achievements you had last year?

 I’m alive, hale and hearty. I think that is the biggest blessing as far as I’m concerned.  

How has married life been?

 It has been very good.

 Of all the things God has done for you, which one do you treasure most?

Being alive and healthy and the wisdom He gave me.  

Have you ever thought about why you were created in this form by God?

Am I the one that created myself? Why would I ask myself such a question? You can only ask such a question when you are frustrated about life or if you are tired of life. But in my own case, I am not. When you wake up in the morning and you are okay and happy and you have something to eat, you have people to smile at you and you smile back, then what else do you need? Then, you go to your bed, you sleep and you seldom visit the hospital, so which other gift is more perfect than that? As far as I’m concerned, that is the greatest gift. There are some people who have all the money, cars, houses and all the things they want, but they are sick; they don’t enjoy the money. So, the perfect gift for me is good health.  

You have a radiating spirit, how have you been able to build on it for so long?

I don’t know. People say it though. So, if you like me, you can say what you like about me because I’m just me and I cant change anything about myself no matter how hard I try. I’m still me.

There is this tale of breakup between you and Pawpaw. What is the truth about it?

We are not Siamese twins. We are men. So, I have my programmes and he has his own and that has made us not to be Siamese twins. He can only call me to ask if I would be at an event and I too can call him to ask and the answer would be yes or no. He is supposed to be here now, but he might be busy doing some other things, so people should try and understand that fact.  

What is that thing about you that most people don’t know?

I don’t know.  

You are a Member of the Federal Republic of Nigeria (MFR), what is the joy in it?

The only joy in it is the recognition. When I’m travelling and I get to the airport, I get special preference and recognition. Apart from that, I don’t get any other thing. I don’t get paid, I don’t get any special benefit as an MFR. As an MFR, I hold the same position with some of those who are Members of the British Empire (MBE) and they have some special benefits in the international community and honourary recognitions. But those things are not here.
