Osita Iheme fondly referred to as ‘paw paw’ needs no formal introduction as he is no stranger in the Nollywood industry.
Paw-paw, in a recent interview, spoke on how much he spent on his new hotel as well as the kind of woman he would love to marry in the future.
He also revealed that he plans to run for political office in the future.
On how he got into the movie industry, he said: “ I used to live in Aba, Abia State, and my friend took me to a place where movie auditions were held. One day, I was chosen to feature in a movie and the rest is history. However, I have always loved to act. In those days, I used to feature in church dramas.”
While speaking on his hotel business in Owerri, Iheme hinted.
“It is an investment. I was motivated by the need to render services to humanity and create employment. We all know that the rate of unemployment in the country is high; so, I decided to look for a way to contribute my quota since I have the privilege to do that. Owerri is a tourism destination in the South-East. The hotel is another way to contribute to the growth of my state. It was indeed cost a lot of money but I cannot give you a specific figure. Building a hotel is not an easy task.”
On his relationship with Chinedu ‘Aki’ Ikedieze, “We have a perfect relationship. Meeting each other was a divine connection; it was God who brought us together. Don’t listen to whatever rumours that say we are not on good terms. What do you think can cause problems between two good friends?”
On plans for marriage and the kind of women he likes, the veteran actor said: “Don’t worry. When that happens, you would be the first to know. As for female fans, I let them know that I appreciate them as fans and would rather love to have them as friends.
I like a woman who is God-fearing and intelligent. I am not really particular about physical qualities.
Whether I wished I was taller? Not everybody in the world is tall. Some are short, and others are of average height. We cannot all look the same. I happen to fall among the short people and I have no regrets about that’ “ he said.
