Controversial Nollywood actor, Yul Edochie, has revealed that his veteran colleague, Emeka Ike, was one of those who inspired him to go into acting.
He disclosed this while welcoming the legendary thespian back to the cinema with Toyin Abraham’s ‘Malaika.’
Edochie also encouraged Emeka Ike not to allow the ongoing saga between him and his ex-wife to pull him down.
He assured the veteran actor that he has more “lovers” than “haters,” urging him to ignore the “noise.”
In an Instagram post, Edochie wrote: “Good to have you back in the game big bro. The Legendary Emeka Ike. @emekaikeofficial Odogwu!
“You’re one of the actors who inspired me to come up. I’m a big fan of your work.
We love you bro. Trust me, the people who love you are more than your haters. But the haters always make more noise. Ignore the noise.
“Don’t let nobody bring you down.
Keep your head up, Boss. Life will constantly try to put you down. No gree.”
He urged Ike to settle with his family amicably, noting that those running with the news do not have peaceful homes too.
