Osita Iheme (born 24 August 1982) is a Nigerian actor. He is widely known for playing the role of ‘Pawpaw’ in the film Aki na Ukwa alongside Chinedu Ikedieze. In 2007 Osita received the Lifetime Achievement Award at the African Movie Academy Awards. He also won the Best Actor in a Comedy for the movie ‘The Hero’ at the 2014 AMVCAs. He is considered to be one of Nigeria’s most famous actors.

Early life

Iheme was born in Mbaitoli, Imo State, Nigeria into a family of five children. After completing his primary and secondary education in Abia State, Iheme enrolled into the Enugu State University and studied Mass Communication.


Like his onscreen partner Chinedu Ikedieze, Osita has a small physique and the two are sometimes referred to as the midget duo. Osita’s rare condition gave him the advantage of being different and unique from all other actors in the Nigerian movie industry.

In 2003 Iheme rose to fame when he starred together with Chinedu Ikedieze in the comedy film Aki na Ukwa in which he played the role of ‘Pawpaw’. In this role, Osita played a mischievous child. He has played the role of a child in many of his films but later has adopted more mature roles.

Osita has evolved in his career from just a comedic actor to a multifaceted established actor. This has gained him respect throughout the Nigerian movie industry and its fans alike.
