Pete Edochie, a veteran Nollywood actor, was conspicuously missing as Yul, his son, listed prominent movie stars who helped shape his acting career.
The gifted actor took to his social media handle on Wednesday to reflect on his foray into acting and prominent figures who influenced him.
In the list, the actor-cum-politician mentioned several Nollywood stars including Richard Mofe-Damijo (RMD), Ramsey Nouah and Desmond Elliott.
“These Stars helped shape my career. RMD, Ramsey, Emeka Ike, Jim Iyke, Chidi Mokeme, Muna Obiekwe, Emeka Enyiocha, Desmond Elliot, Mike Ezuruonye, Nonso Diobi,” he wrote on Twitter.

Then, if I no get money to buy their films I’ll rent from video club.

He narrated how he would go any length, including spending his last penny, just to buy movies wherein his favourite actors featured to improve his acting skills.
“Then if I no get money to buy their films I’ll rent from video club. Not just to enjoy but to learn acting from them,” he added.
He, however, did not mention his father, who is considered one of the leading figures in Nollywood — to the dismay of his fans.
The development comes months after the 38-year-old actor narrated how his father flogged him over thought of ditching school for electric appliances business as a teenager.
“In JS2, I told my father I didn’t want to go to school anymore, he should open an electrical shop for me. He said ok. He invited me to his room, locked the door, pulled out his belt,” he had written.
“He gave me a beating that reset my brain to factory setting. Look at me today. Thank you, dad!”
