There’s always been the belief that Nollywood veteran, Pete Edochie played a major role in his son, Yul Edochie‘s movie career path but there’s now been doubts after the 38 year old politician revealed recently that stars like Richard Mofe-Damijo, Ramsey Nouah, Desmond Elliot and many others helped his career.
In a recent tweet on his social media page, the actor who went down memory lane to recount his days of little beginnings in his acting career, listed out the names of the people in the industry who helped shape his acting career.
These names listed by the actor, a father of four includes RMD, Ramsey Nouah, Desmond Elliot, Jim Iyke, Mike Ezuruonye, Nonso Diobi and others. Edochie noted that they all have his respect. Missing on the list however, is his dad, Pete Edochie, a Nollywood veteran who’s starred in a handful of Nollywood blockbusters.
In his words,
“These Stars helped shape my career. RMD, Ramsey, Emeka Ike, Jim Iyke, Chidi Mokeme, Muna Obiekwe, Emeka Enyiocha, Desmond Elliot, Mike Ezuruonye, Nonso Diobi.
Then, if I no get money to buy their films I’ll rent from video club. Not just to enjoy but to learn acting from them..”
