Edochie is regarded as one of Africa's most outstanding performers, and he has received awards from the Africa Film Academy for Lifetime Achievement and the Industry Merit Award from Africa Magic. Even though he was an experienced administrator and broadcaster, he first gained notoriety in the 1980s when he played Okonkwo, the main character, in a Nigerian Television Authority rendition of Things Fall Apart, the best-selling book by Chinua Achebe. Edochie is a Catholic and descended from the Igbo people of Nigeria. President Olusegun Obasanjo bestowed upon him the title of Member of the Order of the Niger in 2003.

"Grateful for another wonderful year," Edochie added. I'm happy to be 76. Your participation in the approaching elections will be the best birthday present you could give me.
Please cast your vote morally. All is okay with our wonderful country, Nigeria.
