‘He was so accomplished’ – Pete Edochie eulogies grandson
Veteran Nigeria actor Pete Edochie has described his grandson Kambilichukwu Edochie whose death was sadly announced by the family on Thursday, March 30, 2023, as someone who was very accomplished in everything.
According to him, such people who are very skillful, talented, knowledgeable, and respectful don’t live long on the earth.
“Kambilinachukwu is a very quiet, brilliant, and talented child. He’s not somebody you can ride easily. He doesn’t get angry no matter the situation”.
“He may change his composure, but he was definitely a very unusual person in so many respects”.
“He was so accomplished. I always tell my son that I don’t like people excelling like this in anything they are involved in. Experience has taught me that such people don’t last long”, Pete Edochie revealed these good things about the grandson to Vanguard.
Kambilichukwu Edochie died two months after his parents Yul Edochie and Mary Edochie celebrated his 16th birthday for him.
The ace actor Pete Edochie narrating the death to Vanguard said “his son, Yul, called him on the telephone, Wednesday, informing him that Kambilichukwu fell down while playing football with his schoolmates and developed a seizure”.
According to him, “the deceased was rushed to the Mother and Child Hospital, Lagos, where he died hours later”.
The legendary actor said his family started praying for the child immediately after Yul called him on the telephone about the sad incident.
All efforts by the nuclear family and the extended family became futile as Kambilichukwu Edochie couldn’t survive.
