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.

The duo will be launching a movie production company called APEN (Akin & Pawpaw Entertainment Nigeria) in 2012, the launch of the new company which will be a platform for upcoming Nollywood stars will coincide with the 10th anniversary of the duo’s career in the movie industry.
