Veteran and Iconic Nollywood act, Pete Edochie who is one of the pioneers of Nollywood has reacted to claims by a Kenyan who claimed the highly respected thespian is his dad.
Ina an interview with Vanguard News, the actor denied accusations of him fathering a child outside wedlock.
He responded asking why the child in question hasn’t shown up if it were true.
’Why didn’t he come to Nigeria?’ Edochie asked rhetorically.
‘I have never been to Kenya before. Where did I meet his mother? I am not a wayward person. Peter has been my Personal Assistant for over 17 years. If I were a sexually adventurous person, he wouldn’t have stayed with me for this long. But each time somebody calls me he picks up the phone. Somebody brought the story from the internet and showed it to me,’he said.
‘One slim character like that. He looked like a cattle rearer. He said, “somehow I think Pete Edochie is my father.” Well! Let him come to Nigeria and meet his father. But he hasn’t embarked on the journey yet. Like I said, such things don’t bother me. I got married at 22 years. I have never involved myself in tense extra-marital affairs”, he added.
On him being involved in an extra marital affair, Pete had this to say;
“It’s not necessary. We are all weak as men, but you see, if you decide to pursue a torrid extra-marital relationship, what will you be proving to people? However, I don’t involve myself in situations that will make me to compromise my integrity and that of my family”.
