On his Instagram page, Nollywood actor Yul Edochie praised his father, veteran Nollywood actor Pete Edochie, for preparing them to face the world.
When they were children, he claims, their mother would pamper them to the point that she would give up and call their father every time they became unwell and had to take medicine that they did not want to take.
He will then enter the room with a threatening expression on his face and a belt in his hand, and they will just flee and take the medicine in order to avoid being punished by the police officer.
His father, he claims, will never allow them to take the medicine with juice and will instead require them to take it with water.
he shared a photo of his dad and 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.
Now I appreciate him so much.
He made us tough.
Ebubedike 1 of Africa.
I love this man.
My man forever.”
