Nollywood actor Yul Edochie says it is preposterous to compare him to veteran actor Pete Edochie who happens to be his father.
He says that is utter disrespect!
According to Yul who obviously dotes and looks up to his father, such a comparison should never be made.
Yul is good at what he does and has kept many at the edges of their seats with his craft but he says his father is a legend and he is just a learner in the making.
“Not to spite you bro, but this is a comparison that should never ever be done. Comparing me with the Legend, Chief Pete Edochie? Father & Son? I dey mad??” – Yul told the author who made the comparison.
He admits that whatever he is today is kind courtesy of his father— “However good I am today I learned from him. You can compare two actors from the same generation but this one is a capital NO.”
Talk about a son who has fetish-ed his father and here is Yul!

Nollywood actor and producer, Yul Edochie has rejected a comparison between him and his dad, Pete. Junior Edochie has been known as someone who is good at what he does, while his father, a Veteran actor, Pete Edochie, is no doubt his son’s mentor when it comes to acting. Corroborating the assertion, Yul told an author that it’s absolutely wrong to compare him with his dad. “Not to spite you bro, but this is a comparison that should never ever be done. Comparing me with the Legend, Chief Pete Edochie? Father & son? I dey mad??” – Yul told author, Okoji Victor, C. Okoji had shared cover page of a book he authored titled; “The Actors’ Craft: A Contrastive Study Between Pete Edochie and Yul Edochie”. Responding, Yul told Okoji that in as much as he is good at his craft, he cannot be compared to his dad (Pete). “However good I am today I learnt from him. You can compare two actors from same generation but this one is a capital NO”, Yul wrote on twitter.
