Why we hated our dad” Uche Edochie recounts growing up with Pete Edochie as he turns 76

    Published By:

    Uche Edochie, the second son of veteran actor Pete Edochie has recounted how it felt growing up with a strict father.

    Wakadaily report that the popular Nollywood legend turns 76 today, March 7, 2023.

    Celebrating himself the “Lion of Africa“, as he is fondly called, urged his fans to vote with thier conscience ahead of the gubernatorial elections slated for March 11.

    Celebrating the actor, Uche Edochie via his Instagram said it’s weird that it seemed that way growing up because he and his siblings hated their father.

    He wrote, “A very happy birthday to my dad who turns 76 today. One of the highlights of my life has been watching my parents grow old just so that I still get to tell how amazing they are and how much I love them.

    “Isn’t it funny how we felt the exact opposite way when we were growing up? Back then we hated our dads because they wouldn’t let us endanger our lives and careers in the name of having fun. We thought they were the problem. And then we grew up and realized that we were the problem and we needed our asses kicked. Thanks for kicking my ass dad when you had to. I am glad I grew up in the seventies and eighties and had a solid father like you to raise me.

    “These generation of no nonsense men are a dying breed because society won’t let them be. Teach a kid how to be a man and modern society screams ‘toxic masculinity ‘. I can’t even imagine coming home as a teenager back in the day and telling my parents that I have changed my pronouns and I now identify as a cockroach. My dad would have smacked the cockroach out if me. And that my friends is good parenting, even though you can go to jail today for doing so.

    “Anyway please join me in wishing my dad. Mr Pete Edochie a very happy birthday. Did I also tell you he is one of my best friends? Yep. He is an amazing guy and understands me better than most. Thanks for everything pops. You are the best father a man can wish for. I love you and I hope you have a super wonderful day”.
