Nollywood Actor Chinedu Ikedieze (Aki) once contemplated in commiting suicide bcos he was bullied of his small stature.
Veteran Nollywood performer Chinedu Ikedieze, called Aki, has talked openly about the difficulties he encountered as a child as a result of his diagnosis of stunted growth.
The actor claimed that after hearing his doctor tell his mother about his issue, he grew concerned and contemplated suicide because he was being teased by other kids because he wasn’t developing normally.
He revealed this in a current interview with well-known media figure Chude Jideonwo.
Ikedieze claims, “When I was nine years and six months old, something happened. The doctor informed my mother, “Madam, what he has is stunted growth,” in my memory.
“At that point, I began to hear the terms stunted growth and delayed growth. I sobbed countless times because I experienced bullying at school and even at home since my growth was inadequate. It became so horrible that I occasionally considered quitting everything. Because the Third Mainland Bridge is not close by, thank God I have not grown for Lagos.
He expressed his gratitude to his mother for supporting him during those trying times.
Ikedieze continued by saying that when he first met Osita Iheme, aka Pawpaw, “there was this chemistry there.”
