Yul in his appreciation post to his dad recounted some childhood memories. He noted that Pete was stern but the upbringing made his children strong.
According to him, as kids he and his siblings used to fear their dad because he was strict and wouldn’t tolerate nonsense from from anyone, however, adulthood made them appreciate their father more and made them to realize that his principles shaped them to who they are today.
Sharing a photo of his dad, Yul wrote,
“Those days as kids, when we had malaria my mum could spend so long petting and begging you to take your Nivaquine drugs which were very bitter then. When that style no work, she’ll now send someone to go call Popsi.
“Omo, Once my Dad comes into the room, standing at the door staring at you with his mean face and his belt in hand bros you go rush your drugs instantly and be happy after taking them. And once he’s around you must take your drugs with water, no matter how bitter it is, no drink for you oo, just water.
“Popsi was strict to a fault. Him no get time to pet you oo. No nonsense man. Those days we dey fear am oo.
