The name Chinedu Ikedieze, may not sound so familiar in the ears of Nollywood lovers but mention Aki and Pawpaw, especially to the kids and everybody gives a nod in recognition.
The diminutive actor has done well for himself in the Nigerian movie scene. Not only has he become a household name in Africa, Chinedu Ikedieze is also a national award recipient.
But that notwithstanding, Mr. Ikedieze is still not fulfilled because he believes that by this time in his life, he should have bagged a Ph.D degree.
According to him, aside obtaining his first degree in mass communication at ‘The Institute of Management and Technology (IMT), Enugu,’ he also had the opportunity to go to New York Film Academy in 2004.
“I did film acting, it is like a certificate programme and I have learnt over the years on the job too. By now, the way I had it in mind when I finished school, I should have had my second Master’s degree if not Ph.D. Each time I think along that line, other things come to mind and I am not happy about that. When you see me again, I might just be finishing a particular course,” he squealed.
