Tuesday marks the 76th birthday of seasoned Nollywood actor and producer Pete Edochie, and one of his sons, Uche Edochie, has revealed why they hated their father as children.
In a post honoring his father's birthday anniversary on his verified Instagram page, Uche noted that his siblings misunderstoodly detested their father's strict and firm lifestyle, which he claimed was intended to enrich their lives.
It's funny how we felt the exact opposite way when we were growing up, Uche said, describing his father as a strict man who made sure his kids succeeded. We hated our fathers back then because they wouldn't let us put our lives and careers in danger for the sake of fun.
“We thought they were the problem, and we grew up to realize that we were the problem and we needed our asses kicked. Thanks for kicking my ass when you had to, dad. I’m glad I grew up in the 70s and 80s and had a solid father like you to raise me.
“A very happy birthday to my dad, who turns 76 today." Thanks for everything, pops. You are the best father a man can wish for. I hope you have a super wonderful day. "I love you.”
