His father is considered as one of the Godfathers and legends in the Nigerian movie industry.

Yul Edochie said, “It is not my plan to fill my father’ s shoes; I have just set out to play my part in the society . I am not under any pressure to surpass my father’ s achievements in the movie industry. I am just here , being myself. I have always loved acting and mimicking people . At a very early age , it was obvious that I was also going to become an actor . I was named after an actor called Yul Brynner . However , I am not under any pressure to surpass my father.”

On his father’s response to him joining politics, the younger Edochie further revealed that his father did not initially like the fact that he ventured into politics till he explained to him that youths needed to embrace politics in order to change the society.

My father does not like politics . He did not really like the idea of me venturing into politics but I made him realise that if we are all shying away from politics , who is going to save this country ? So he just had to give me his support because everybody has been shying away from politics for too long and that is why Nigeria is the way it is . I would say that he is supporting me all the way , ” the actor said.
