“I Feel Insulted” – Veteran Nollywood Actor Pete Edochie Responds to Death Hoax | Watch the Video



Pete Edochie

He is alive and still kicking.

In December 2012, reports surfaced online that 65 year old Nigerian actor Pete Edochie was dead after falling from a 50 ft building at a video shoot in Austria. Not long after, a rep for the Egg of Life actor released a statement that the veteran big screen star is indeed alive.

In a short video interview by WAOH Naija held on Friday 4th December 2012, Pete Edochie speaks on the death hoax and how he feels insulted by a certain Hyacinth Peter, who according to Pete broke the news on social networking site – Facebook.

Pete Edochie, who calls the incident funny,  also speaks on how the news caused a lot of worry and anxiety in his family and thanks God he is alive.
