Pete Edochie, a legend of Nollywood, recently discussed his kids in an interview that he conducted with Vanguard News.
Two of the six children of the well-known actor and Josephine Edochie, who he wedded at the age of only 22 years old, are actors themselves.
Pete Edochie’s children are Eva, Yul, Gene, Linc, Uche, and Leo.
Pete Edochie discussed his thoughts on the controversy throughout the conversation and especially addressed the subject of why Yul is so different from his other children.
Pete Edochie said:
“HE’S INTO SHOW BUSINESS AND HE TRIES TO CREATE CONTROVERSIES AROUND HIMSELF. THAT’S WHY HE HAS A LOT OF FOLLOWERS ON SOCIAL MEDIA.”
But why does it look like Yul is a kid after your heart, the interrogator proceeded?
“ALL MY CHILDREN ARE AFTER MY HEART. WHATEVER THEY DO I AM STILL THEIR FATHER, AND I AM VERY CLOSE TO ALL OF THEM. I DON’T HAVE A FAVORITE ONE. AND I DIDN’T RAISE THEM LIKE THAT. WHATEVER YOU FIND IN MY HOUSE IS ACCESSIBLE TO ALL OF THEM.
“I DON’T CONTEST THEIR CHOICES WITH THEM. IF ANY ONE OF THEM MEETS A GIRL AND HE’S IN LOVE WITH HER AND HE WANTS TO MARRY HER, LET THAT PERSON GO AHEAD AND DO SO. I GAVE THEM THE NECESSARY EDUCATION THEY REQUIRE TO STAND ON THEIR OWN. I BOUGHT A CAR FOR EACH ONE OF THEM WHEN THEY GRADUATED FROM THE UNIVERSITY.”
