He is considered to be one of Nigeria’s most famous actors.
Recently,he was awarded the Nigeria National Honour of Member of the Order of the Federal Republic (MFR).
In a recent chat with him,he opens up on the national award.
Pawpaw,who is so happy for his(Aki) partner’s decision to marry also told us he has equally found love.But pressed to reveal the identity of the woman rocking his world,he declined comment.
He rather appealed to us to be patient.” I am in serious relationship,” was all he said.
Asked again how it feels to be recognized by the Federal Government,” It’s exciting and great to be so chosen amongst millions of eminent Nigerians.When I missed it last year,I told people my own is coming.And finally it’s here.So,I am so,so happy.I thank President Goodluck Jonathan for his honour.I promise I won’t disappoint.
It’s now Aki and Pawpaw MFR.God is the greatest”.
Credited with over 100 movies,and on high demand as a performing artiste,Pawpaw is one of the richest actors in Nollywood.
He lives in an estate in Ogba,Ikeja axis of Lagos while he and Chinedu(Aki) are building a twin duplex in Lagos.Both have also completed their buildings in Aba,Enyimba City,Abia State.
