My height won’t let me play basketball – Actor, Chinedu Ikedieze
By Patricia Uyeh
Nollywood actor, Chinedu Ikedieze, popularly known as Aki, who is short in stature, is not allowing that to be a limitation even though he would have loved to play basketball .
According to him, his very high IQ compensates for his short stature. He added that he is comfortable with who he is and can achieve whatever he set out to do.
He said; “I have a very high IQ and it has nothing to do with my height. Regardless of how I look, I am very clever and good at whatever it is that I set out to do. I really enjoy being who I am,”
“I love sports and my favourite is football. I’m a huge football fan and a supporter of Arsenal FC and Enyimba FC. My dad played football and I can play football as well.
” I actually enjoy playing football, and when I’m not playing on the field, I’m playing it in video games. I have a football academy called Cityfut Escola.
“I also love basketball but unfortunately, my height won’t let me play; however, I watch it a lot. I used to support the Celtics but I’m currently a Cleveland fan because of LeBron James.”
