I was denied acting roles because of my father – Yul Edochie

Nollywood actor, Yul Edochie, has revealed that he was denied acting roles severally because of his father, Pete Edochie.

The actor revealed this on Sunday via a tweet in response to a fan who lamented the rigours of getting acting roles in Nollywood.


“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,” Yul said.

My brother The politics played under nollywood and this country is so bad and it's now a tradition. Am a victim of the politics played under Nollywood industry. Do you know how many times i have been dropped from a lot of production just because i don't have a sponsor

The 37-year-old recently shared a photo of his only daughter, Danielle, with her grandfather, Pete, to stress the need for family bond.

Yul says he has a call to do pastoral work but also says he does not believe in praying for his enemies, an apparent contradiction of biblical teaching.
