Veteran Nigerian Actor Pete Edochie Makes a Comeback to Nollywood



Pete Edochie Adaora Ukoh

Every Nigerian loves them some Pete Edochie right? The man’s acting feats and endless slew of proverbs, regardless of the character he plays, have truly endeared Pete Edochie to the hearts of Nollywood film watchers.

Sadly, in recent years, the ‘igwe’ has been on a hiatus from movie sets but, he’s making a comeback. He was spotted on set of a ‘Godfather’-themed movie with actress Adaora Ukoh who uploaded the above photo to her Instagram page a few days ago with the caption:

“On set with Pete Edochie…. As the Godfather… Feels Good working with him again after The FOUR SISTERS set”

Are you excited to see Pete Edochie in movies again? From the photo above, what creative title do you think Nollywood would come up with for this movie?

    I have been watching a lot of his movies lately, on Africa magic. I didn’t even know he was away. Welcome back sir.

    I love him. I hope he isn’t acting in some of these rubbish Nigerian producers are producing and calling it ‘movie’. Uncle Edochie is waayyy to good for such.

    Well he has been back for a minute. He tried to come back in 2011 with ‘Lonely Walk’, I guess that didn’t work out. So he left and came back again in 2012 with some really terrible productions like ‘Kings Fall Apart’ and the likes.

    I think it’s really sad that such a legend comes back to the screens and his first movies are a bunch of chewing gum – no storyline – made in Asaba movies. Hopefully this one’s a good one

    All the bad movies is why stars like Omotola Ramsey Genvieveve and Rita are not working in Asaba. Things are bad there o

    Pls stop the insult! How can u say that a legend like Pete Edochie is trying to make a ‘comeback’? Can his place ever be taken? He’s been off the screen for a while probably due to the crappy movies being produced that are in no way befitting of him, he decides to be on this one and he’s making a ‘comeback’? Soon if u see Genevieve on set u’ll say she’s trying to make a ‘comeback’. Learn to give people respect due to them.

    Whenever I read ‘Things Fall Apart’, the Okonkwo character is etched in my mind as Pete Edochie. Luv, luv, luv him. Legend!
