Yul Edochie has disclosed the real reason why his older brother, Linc Edochie, permanently left Nollywood.
Linc and Yul, the two well-liked kids of renowned Nigerian actor Pete Edochie, also dominated Nollywood.
Then Linc put the breaks on his career, and Yul has given The New Telegraph an explanation of why this happened. See the passages below;
On why Linc stopped acting, Yul said:
“Yeah, Linc started before me. He started like a year before I got in but later left to do something else. So, I would say we all have our own destiny.”
Asked about his future in Nollywood and whether he has any immediate plans to stop acting, Yul Edochie said:
“No, I am not even thinking about that. Never! I studied Theatre Arts and I took my time to read this so I didn’t just get in. I have a passion for acting and I have a passion for directing but I don’t have a passion for producing.
So, if I want to do my own films like right now I am planning on doing my own films, I am going to get a producer who is very good with that. Pay the producer to run everything but he’s going to be professional. So, I won’t say because it’s my film let me do everything, then I will mess it up.”
Yul also spoke on growing up with Nollywood icon, Pete Edochie, as his father.
In his words;
“It feels good. Growing up was really good with him as a father. He is extremely strict, but I thank God that He gave me a father like that. I couldn’t have wished for a better father. He is a strict catholic, so a lot of things I know today I learnt because of my background. Like I told you, I would rather die than dope. Kill me but I won’t dope and that’s how my father is.
My father made us to understand that it is better to have a good name. Good name will get you riches and everything you need. That’s the kind of family I was raised in, and my mum too is very strict. There wasn’t much money then to throw around but we grew up loving God and each other.”
