All hail the meme King.

If you're as internet-obsessed as us, you've probably noticed all the Osita Iheme memes that have been flooding our timelines. The popular Nollywood (the Nigerian film industry) actor is a pretty big deal in Nigeria, but thanks to his popularity online, it won't be long until we see Osita on every television screen.

The best memes of 2019 (so far)

Osita, also know as Pawpaw, is best known for his role in 2002 comedy Aki na Ukwa. The movie, in which he played the role of Pawpaw, catapulted his career. In the role, Osita played a mischievous child alongside Chinedu Ikedieze, who often plays his on-screen brother. In real life, though, he isn't a child. Osita is actually 37-years-old but a rare condition gives him his younger appearance.

Keanu Reeves memes are taking over the internet and they're so pure
Memes from his movies have been floating around for a while now but everyone's talking about a particular scene from Stubborn Flies. The movie came out in 2007 and it's all about a man who wants to leave his parents to look for the perfect wife. In one scene from the movie, Osita is sitting on a chair holding a book and trying to piece something together.

As you know, the internet can't help itself when it comes to memes and now Pawpaw is going viral for the relatable clip.

Our lives are a mess.


A girl can dream.

How... how would that even work?


Relationships are... confusing.


Ugh, regret.

In conclusion, we stan.
