Yul Edochie has taken to his Instagram page to appreciate his famous and legendary father the “Ebubedike 1 of Africa”, Pete Edochie.

According to Yul, he and his siblings were so scared of their Nollywood legend father and thought “Popsi was strict to a fault.”

While showing appreciation to his “no-nonsense” father for making him tough, Yul whom himself has become arguably the greatest actor in Nigeria, shared a photo of Pete Edochie and wrote:

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 oo, 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 oo.

Now I appreciate him so much.

He made us tough.

Ebubedike 1 of Africa.


I love this man.

My man forever.”
