Even the boisterous, energetic disc jockey General Manager of HOT FM (Abuja) Chaz Bruce, had to remark that there must be something “special about you” – to named twice “there must be an African explanation” Chaz quipped – to which Akume replied in the affirmative.
He revealed that he is the first born in his family and a spitting image of his dad, so, rather than name him junior, he chose to double his name – Akume Akume. Akume hails from “pounded yam” country – Benue State. Akume’s performance in Violence is brilliant. His deep involvement in his lead character role of (Idemudia) made him admit that the character left life long lesson on him that will serve him well. Akume, says Idemudia’s strength of character and determination not to be a prisoner of his environment and his ability to keep his integrity – despite the odds, are essential commodities of survival for today’s average Nigerian. A likeable fellow, who once acquainted to a person, gets on easily, Akume is sure ready to be a major feature in Nollywood – but remember you saw his most notable performance to date first in Violence.
