We Hawked Akara, Pure water to survive – Nollywood twins.

Enugu celebrity twins, Chidiebere and Chidinma Aneke are no strangers to movie buffs in Nigeria . The pretty actresses cum producers who were the brains behind such wave-making movies as ’Compulsory Risk “, ‘Ujuaka”and many others have continued to enlarge their profile against all odds in the industry.

Question: What do you think can divide the two of you?
Marriage can divide the two of us. But we have prayed to marry twin brothers and that our marriages should take place on the same day. But we say this because we are just humans. God’s will definitely grant us all of our wishes.

Question: Tell us a little about the movies you have done together?
We have done Crazy Twins, Jealous Friends, Desperate Twins, Lagos Girls, Broken Ambition, Revenge of the gods and many others.

Question: We had that your childhood was not rosy, how did you cope?
That online gist wasn’t true! Our childhood was rosy, our dad was very wealthy. He was a philantropist. Although he was married to three wives, the three wives cooked inside one pot. We lived like princes and princesses. My father was indeed wealthy. The problem we had after our dad’s death was that our uncles took everything from us and we started life all over again.

Question: What happened after your father’s death?
Life became very difficult when dad died. We went into petty trading; we sold pure water, bread and ‘akara’. We hawked on the streets to survive.

Question: Didn’t you get harrassed by men while hawking on the streets?
Men being who they are, some claimed they would help us. But we discovered that they wanted to mess us up and we immediately placed them where they belonged.

Question: Tell us about your love life
I was once in a relationship but Chidinma didn’t approve of it and she gave me reasons. I studied the guy in question and noticed she was right. I also do that to her sometimes. We are not jealous of each other. We only complement each other.

Question: Have you girls ever switched lovers before?
No! We haven’t . But we have experienced something like that while we were growing up. At that time, the guy asked Chidinma out but she wasn’t interested in him, we wanted to play games with him, by going for his money. So, l was always at the guy’s house pretending to be Chidinma while extorting money from him. This went on until l was nearly raped by the guy in question. But we had to call off the game after that incident.

From then on, we have lived with the principle of not eating what we are not interested in from the beginning.

Question: What kind of reactions do you get from your fans whenever they meet you outside?
Our fans, especially the children do not want to believe that the characters we play in movies are not real. So they see us and run away thinking we are real killers.It became worse when we acted in the movie titled Jealous Friend.

In that movie, l played a character where my twin sister was killed and l took revenge on the killers. In fact just recently, I met a Police Commissioner who also called me a killer because of the role I played in a movie! culled from vanguard news.

If the Twin can survive their trouble times, you too can make it.
