Popular Nigerian actor Yul Edochie has shared a time when he had told his father he wanted to dropout and what he’d done.
According to him, he wanted to drop out to become a vendor of an electrical shop while he was in JSS 2.
His father, veteran actor Pete Edochie had given him a destiny changing beating which inspired him to refocus on his education.
He thanked his dad for the beating. This is coming after a video of father beating his son for failing classes went viral. The man had paid a whooping 8 million Naira in school fees and his son had failed almost all his courses.
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!

Is this beating ? 21k USD is a lot and the mum is saying he should not beat them ? She’s giving them confidence or indirectly saying they get away with things easily. Because the dad shouldn’t be the only one scolding them pic.twitter.com/7bcrL7qoVS
