Yul recalled how uncle Larry, as he is popularly called, would call him on weekly basis to find out if he was on a job and then offer some words of encouragement to him, and then how he finally got him hooked up to a job as a director through referal.

In Yul's very words, "One day Uncle Larry called me and told me had secured a movie job for me in Lagos, to assist a director (Emeka First Image) but I should hold on for him to speak with the executive producer to make sure I would get paid before coming.

I couldn't wait, my blood dey hot as always.

For me it has always been passion before money, so I took the next available bus from Enugu to Lagos, went straight to his hotel room and knocked.

Uncle Larry was shocked to see me.

He said to me, but I told you to wait let me ensure that you will get paid before coming.

I told him that I needed to work, whether I would get paid or not wasn't my problem, I needed to show the talent I had in me.

He was so touched.

He placed his hand on my head and prayed for me, and told me that with that kind of zeal in me I would become one of the greatest in no distant time.

And the rest is history.

I will always celebrate you Uncle Larry.

Long life, protection, blessings upon blessings I wish you in the mighty name of Jesus, Amen."

Uncle Larry

Yul is currently having an academy where he mentors young people on acting
