Yul Edochie has taken to social media to express his gratitude to fellow actor Nonso Diob for his kind gestures towards him.

Dubbed the new Ramsey Nouah, Nonso who was listed as number 17 was praised for his good looks and acting skills.
17. Nonso Diobi – At a time, Nonso more or less became a youthful version of Ramsey Nouah, he was younger, fresher and bursting with so much energy per movie.

Reacting to the post, Yul described his fellow movie colleague as a great soul and then revealed he was one of the many newbie actors the award-winning movie star took under his wings and never complained about it.
