Amid tears and gloomy atmosphere that pervade the Nigerian movie industry in recent times, the industry rose to a celebration during the week when one of its surviving veteran actors, Pete Edochie marked his birthday anniversary. The legendary actor, who was kidnapped in the past, remains a strong force to reckon with in the industry.
AGN president Ibinabo Fiberesima joined the actor’s family to celebrate the man and his achievements. She expressed the need for the practitioners to celebrate their own whenever they need arises. “Ït is not only about death all the time, we must also learn to celebrate ourselves whenever the need arises,”she said. Even as his other colleagues including Enebeli Elebuwa, Pete Eneh, and just recently, Justus Esiri have passed away, Pete remains strong and hearty.
Only recently, it was rumoured that the veteran actor has kicked the bucket. Maybe, it’s a blessing is disguise for him as well that as some people wish bad things for him, God continues to keep him strong.
