Every celebrity has his/her embarrassing moment, but this encounter that popular pint-size actors, Chinedu Ikedieze (Aki) and Osita Iheme (Pawpaw) had with some Italian policemen is a mix of comedy and embarrassment.
Chinedu and Osita disclosed to some friends over the weekend that one of their embarrassing moments took place in Italy some years back when policemen in the country mistook them for minors, threatening to arrest their promoter for not using baby carrier for them in the car.
It was gathered that the movie stars had arrived Italy in company of comedian Julius Agwu for a show, and they were picked from the airport by their promoter, who was driving them to their hotel when the policemen stopped them at a checkpoint.
They (Chinedu and Osita) had to alight from the car, show their Nigerian passports to the policemen before they actually believed that they are adults with the physical frame of a child.
“I still remember that day and the feeling vividly…it was funny. Since then, Julius (Agwu) has been using the incident as joke in some events, but people don’t know that it’s a true life story,”Chinedu said.
