Pete Edochie Once Had Only Four Trousers While Raising Us — Yul Edochie Opens Up (Updated: Sunday, 6th June 2021, 07:37 AM)


Nigerian thespian, Yul Edochie, who is an iconic Nollywood star and the son of Nigerian film veteran, Pete Edochie, has shed some light on his upbringing. The movie star turned politician noted that he did not grow up on a bed of roses.

The younger Edochie, via his verified Instagram account, went down memory lane as he shared a glimpse of his childhood with his fans.

Although his father is a celebrated actor across the continent and a national award recipient, Yul revealed that there was a time when his father had only four pairs of trousers.

He wrote, “At a time, while raising us his six children, this great man had only four pairs of trousers — Black, brown, blue and grey. But he never cared.”

Yul stated that despite the deprivation his father, the legendary Pete Edochie, faced at the time, all the great thespian was bothered about was the welfare of his family.

He said, “He hardly bought new things for himself. All he cared about was taking care of his family and giving his children the best.

“Then, he was a civil servant, before the movies came. There wasn’t much money, but he would never take anything that doesn’t belong to him. Then if we come back from school with anyone’s pen or book, your nyash go catch fire for him hand.” (sic)

Yul further divulged that despite the hardship they faced at the time, his parents taught their children how to be contended with whatever they had.

Thanking his parents for his upbringing, the actor wrote, “Amongst many other things, my parents taught us to be content with whatever we have, work hard, believe in God and be upright citizens.

“All my Dad kept on saying was this ‘if I give my children the best training and the best education, they will survive anywhere and they’ll never lack and I will be a fulfilled father’.

“Now that I’m older, with each passing day, I appreciate you and mum so much more. Thank you. Thank you, Dad. Thank you, Chief Pete Edochie @peteedochie. Thank You.”
