Popular Nollywood actor Yul Edochie has taken to social media to recount the hard discipline he received from his father and veteran actor, Pete Edochie that set his focus straight as a child.

Yul Edochie says his father beat him up mercilessly after he made known to him his desire to drop out of secondary school and become a trader.

The actor took to his Twitter page today being Thursday, April 23, 2020, where he opened up about the terrible but valuable experience with his father.

In his tweet, Yul recalled how he had walked up to his father and told him of his plan to quit his classroom education for life in the marketplace as an electrical trader.

Yul Edochie says his father beat him up mercilessly after he made known his desire to drop out of secondary school and become a trader.

However, the suggestion did not sit well with the Nollywood icon who lured his young son into the house behind closed doors and flogged the idea out of his brain.

Yel went on to note that the not so nice experience made him a better person and for that reason he is grateful to his father.

“In JS2, I told my father I didn’t want to go to school anymore, he should open electrical shop for me. He said ok. He invited me to his room, locked the door & pulled out his belt. He gave me a beating that reset my brain to factory setting. Look at me today. Thank you Dad!” he wrote.
