Controversial Nigerian actor, Yul Edochie, has revealed that his trending colleague, Emeka Ike, was one of those who inspired him to explore the movie industry.
The filmmaker and politician made the disclosure while welcoming Emeka Ike back to the cinema with ‘Malaika’ produced by Toyin Abraham.
Edochie, in an Instagram post, encouraged the veteran actor not to allow the ongoing saga between him and his ex-wife, Suzanne Emma to pull him down.
The father of five assured Emeka Ike that the people who love him are more than those who ‘hate’ him so he should just ignore the “noise.”
He also urged the actor who is now married to a South African, to settle the issue with his first family amicably, noting that those running with the news do not have peaceful homes too.
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 pull you down. No gree. Nwanne kwechili. Nobody house good pass.
Forget the romantic pictures you see couples post on social media,if people tell you their own family wahala you go run.
Even the people wey dey interview your family people take am dey cash out, their own house no good. Your family matter no concern anybody. Who’s right or wrong no concern anybody. Na you and madam go settle that one. What matters to us your fans is to see you happy and doing that thing we love you for, which is your work.
We dey with you big bro. Everything you ever lost, this is the time to get it back. Everything you ever dreamt of becoming, this is the time to go for it, with your work and your name.
The name EMEKA IKE is crested by God. Nobody can bring you down except you. Never back down. Never stay down. No gree for anybody. The sky is your starting point. Soon we go jam for set again. We love you big bro. Kwechili Nwanne.”
