Petite Actor, Chinedu Ikedieze (MFR), popularly known as Aki, says he has never for once questioned God for his stature.
Aki who has featured in over 100 movies disclosed this in a quick chat with Yes Magazine.
“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.”
He also cleared the air on his alleged cold relationship with fellow Actor, Pawpaw “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.”
When asked to discuss the benefits he derives from being a Member of the Federal Republic of Nigeria (MFR), he said “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 honorary recognitions. But those things are not here.:
