Pete Edochie mourns grandson, Kambilichukwu
Veteran actor, Pete Edochie mourns his grandson, Kambilichukwu who died on Thursday, just 2 months after his 16th birthday.
The actor confirmed the news to Vanguard when he shared that Yul called him on the telephone on Wednesday, informing him that Kambilichukwu fell 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 the call.
“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 any thing they are involved in. Experience has taught me that such people don’t last long.”
