Back in the early months of 2019, Aki memes flooded the internet and social media. The memes of Aki and his onscreen brother, PawPaw (Osita Iheme) went absolutely viral. The duo broke through in the 2002 film, Aki na Ukwa. In the film, the duo play Aki and PawPaw, brothers who cause complete chaos in their home, in their school, and basically in their whole village.

Iheme and Ikedieze often assumed to be teenagers but are actually in their 40s, are well known for their theatrical over-acting and mischief. One viral meme shows Ikedieze starstruck by a girl’s beauty, while another depicts Iheme taking sips of beer while exaggeratedly expressing his satisfaction.
