Uche Edochie, a Nollywood actor, has described growing up with a strict father Pete Edochie.

The actor announced this on his Instagram page while celebrating his father’s 76th birthday.

He revealed that one of the highlights of his life has been watching his parents age so that he can continue to tell them how wonderful they are and how much he adores them.

He found it amusing that it felt that way when he and his siblings were growing up because they despised their father.

He gave the reason that Pete Edochie would not let them jeopardize their lives and careers for the sake of having fun.

However, as they grew older, they realized they were the source of the problem and deserved to have their asses kicked.

He opined that the present generation of no nonsense men are a dying breed because society won’t let them be.

“A very happy birthday to my dad who turns 76 today. One of the highlights of my life has been watching my parents grow old just so that I still get to tell how amazing they are and how much I love them.

Isn’t it funny how we felt the exact opposite way when we were growing up? Back then we hated our dads because they wouldn’t let us endanger our lives and careers in the name of having fun. We thought they were the problem. And then we grew up and realized that we were the problem and we needed our asses kicked. Thanks for kicking my ass dad when you had to. I am glad I grew up in the seventies and eighties and had a solid father like you to raise me.

These generation of no nonsense men are a dying breed because society won’t let them be. Teach a kid how to be a man and modern society screams ‘toxic masculinity ‘. I can’t even imagine coming home as a teenager back in the day and telling my parents that I have changed my pronouns and I now identify as a cockroach. My dad would have smacked the cockroach out if me. And that my friends is good parenting, even though you can go to jail today for doing so.

Anyway please join me in wishing my dad. Mr Pete Edochie a very happy birthday. Did I also tell you he is one of my best friends? Yep. He is an amazing guy and understands me better than most. Thanks for everything pops. You are the best father a man can wish for. I love you and I hope you have a super wonderful day”.
