Pawpaw was not rude to me - Ghanaian actor Joe Shortingo

Ghanaian Actor Joe Shortingo has defended claims that popular Nigerian actor Osita Iheme, with whom he recently made his debut, is impolite.

Some individuals who have come in contact with the man popularly called Pawpaw have confirmed he is a very rude actor.

However, the Ghanaian actor, who is also from the diminutive family, as Pawpaw told News-One that he did not see that aspect of Osita while working with him.

“He wasn't rude to me and I have no reason to say he is a rude person. For me, no, he is not rude. I was very fortunate and happy to act with him. As always as it is here, working with him was normal. He is my senior brother and I give him the due respect.

“To me particular, no, he is not rude. He is rude to some others, I think it’s because of their ridiculous act and words; he did that to prevent such things,” Joe Shortingo added.

Pawpaw was in Ghana few months ago to shoot the movie, ‘Boys Abre’. He starred alongside Joe Shortingo and it was the first time both of them were acting together.

A lot of expectation awaits the movie which would be released onto the Ghanaian market today December 30.
