Yul Edochie, son of renowned Nollywood, Actor Pete Edochie took to his Twitter to narrate how he at one time while in Junior Secondary School 2 had told his father that he wanted to drop out of school, and his father in response asked him to come into his room, where he received the beating of his life that reset his thinking.


This is a classic tale of teenage rebellion. Who didn’t have one of those? Thank God for the father’s quick response that reset his brain. We all know how he turned out. Else we probably wouldn’t have known this great actor and film director. Tell us what you did during your teenage years. How was your rebellion like?


“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!”
