Yul Chibuike Daniel Edochie, a native of Anambra State, is a prominent Nigerian Actor and the son of one of Nigeria’s finest actors and screen legend, Pete Edochie. Yul Edochie was born on the 7th of January 1982 and grew up in Lagos and Enugu States respectively.

As someone who saw his father actively acting movies, he understands the industry to a great extent and the type of talents Nigeria can offer to the world.
