“Now I appreciate my dad, he made us tough” – Actor, Yul Edochie recounts old memories with Pete Edochie
Yul in his appreciation post to his father related some beloved recollections. He noted that Pete was harsh yet the childhood made his kids solid.
As stated by him, as children he and his siblings used to fear their father since he was severe and wouldn’t endure gibberish from anybody, however, adulthood caused them to see the value in their dad more and made them to understand that his standards molded them to who they are today.
Back in the days as children, when they had jungle fever, his mum could spend so much time petting and beseeching his kids to take their Nivaquine drugs which were exceptionally unpleasant then, at that point. At the point when it doesn’t work, she will send for their father Pete Edochie and once he comes into the room, at the entryway gazing at them with his mean face and his belt close by, they they will immediately rush their medications right away and be cheerful after taking them.
Sharing a photograph of his father, Yul composed:
“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.
Now I appreciate him so much. He made us tough. Ebubedike 1 of Africa. @peteedochie. I love this man. My man forever.”
