I laugh when I hear some, or even most persons, attributing Yul Edochie's huge success in Nollywood to his Father's own- meaning that it was Chief Pete Edochie who made his son, Yul, this successful in movie industry.
First, I want you to understand the fact that Nollywood is not run like that, even if there is impositions of actors/actresses on producers and directors, that comes mostly from the Executive producers (being the owners of the films), and any other person who walk same path will inevitably meet a brick wall. This is because, the gain or loss in the film, the Executive Producer bears it alone, so you don’t bring in your sentiments or selfish interest into his business, and expects it to sail, just to please your ego, no way, not here in Nollywood!
Secondly, recall that one of Pete Edochie's son, Linc Edochie started as an actor before his younger brother, Yul Edochie, how come he didn't ride on the huge success of his dad to command the respect his younger is commanding presently? Has that alone not given you a clearer understanding of how the industry works?
If Yul Edochie hadn't the talent and grace, not just talent, exceptional and unique talent, forget it, he wouldn't have gotten this far in the industry. In fact, let me tell, do you know that there are many actors in Nollywood, working back to back, for years now, and if they tell you that there are Nollywood actors, and have been in the industry all that years, you will argue it, even up to hell?
