Although his nickname Aki has over shadowed his real names, Chinedu Ikedezie, but the pint-sized actor has been up and doing since he hit the limelight after he starred in Aki Na Ukwa in 2001. Ever since then, the happily married actor has continued to grow from strength to strength.
When asked how he managed to scale through the fiercely competitive Nigeria movie industry and in a short run carved an niche for himself, Aki who is often mistaken as a 7 year old boy confirmed that there was something peculiar and mysterious about his birth.
According to him, “To God be the glory, I just knew that there was something peculiar about me; my life has been exceptional I must confess. Let me tell you something about my birth.
My mum put to bed at exactly 12 am on the dot the day I was born; as soon as it was 12 am I popped out! One peculiar thing about my mum is that she goes to the labour room with her wristwatch and once she gives birth she records the time. And God has so blessed her she delivered like the Hebrew women; she never had complications.
I came into the world at exactly 12 am on the dot on the 12 day of the 12 month of the year so that means there is something unique about me. Growing up as a tot my parents wondered how I would end up because they couldn’t even dictate to me. You know, parents have a way of knowing what their kids would be in the future. They would be like this one is going to be a medical doctor and that one is going to be an engineer. In my case, they couldn’t tell where I was headed because I seemed to have a knack for everything; thatâ€™s the making behind my life and who I am today.
It was always known that there was something mysterious about me; I have to be honest with you, ” he asserted.
