Nigerian actor, Yul Edochie has revealed how he struggled to make a name for himself in Nollywood as a result of the discrimination he faced because of his legendary actor father Pete Edochie.
Under normal circumstances, Pete Edochie’s legacy and reverence should have paved way for his son to make the transition into Nollywood very easy but on the contrary things did not go that way.
Yul Edochie stated that he was denied movie roles due to the fact that people envied him because of his father’s name but that didn’t stop him from achieving his dream.
He tweeted: “Politics is played in every country and in every industry, not only Nollywood. Ask people in other fields. In my early days I was dropped many times too because of my father’s name, it made many envious. But I never gave up.”
