How my father toughened us – Yul Edochie
Actor, Yul Edochie is full of gratitude to his legendary father, Pete Edochie for making his children tough.
According to Yul, his father who he referred to as ‘Ebubedike 1 of Africa” and his “man forever”, was firm and strict and his nature contributed to the good upbringing of him and his siblings.
The actor-cum-politician said as children, all their mother needed to do for them to eventually take their drugs whenever they were ill was to call their father.
He said the sight of him standing by the door with a stern look and wielding a belt always did the trick.
He also said as kids, they were extremely scared of their father but that has now been replaced with immense appreciation because he made them tough.
Yul shared a photo of his father via his Instagram page and captioned it: “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, 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. Now I appreciate him so much.
“He made us tough. Ebubedike 1 of Africa @peteedochie. I love this man. My man forever.”
