Yul Edochie has revealed that he lost movie roles in the past because he was related to legendary actor Pete Edochie.
The actor turned politician made this statement in response to a fan who lamented how difficult it was for him to land movie roles in Nigeria.
Yul in a bid to encourage the fan, shared his own struggles he faced while coming up as an actor.
According to him, he lost several movie roles because people were envious of him and his father but that did not stop him from chasing his dream.
Yul Edochie wrote:
“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”
