It is believed that the Veteran Actor, Pete Edochie played important role in his son's career but many are beginning to doubt after seeing the list of those mentioned by Yul Edochie, without his father's name being included among the names, and this actually kept me wondering.

The 38 year old politician recently revealed that Nollywood Stars like Richard Mofe-Damijo(RMD), Ramsey Nouah, Desmond Elliot and a whole lots of them in the industry are his mentors and that he didn't just watch their movies, but he was learning how to act also from the Actors.
He tweeted, in his own words, he wrote; “These Stars helped shape my career. RMD, Ramsey, Emeka Ike, Jim Iyke, Chidi Mokeme, Muna Obiekwe, Emeka Enyiocha, Desmond Elliot, Mike Ezuruonye, Nonso Diobi.
Then, if I no get money to buy their films I’ll rent from video club. Not just to enjoy but to learn acting from them".
