Ikedieze, 40, as part of the honour was recognized as a “Distinguished Visitor” by the Miami-Dade County office of the Mayor and the Board of County Commissioners.
He was also handed a plaque, a certificate of recognition, customized pens and a symbolic key to the county.
In an Instagram post, the actor who has played lead roles in Nollywood – the country’s film industry – both as a child (due to his size) and an adult, shared a quote about belief in oneself and one’s abilities.
“From the bottom of my heart, I say thanks to Miami- Dade County office of the Mayor and the County Commissioners for honouring me as a DISTINGUISHED VISITOR to the City of Miami, Florida. You have just given me a KEY to more SUCCESS in life,” his post read in part.
