In response to the controversial statement by a Nigerian writer, better known as sugabelly on twitter, calling veteran Nollywold actor, Pete Edochie ‘a bad actor’, he has reacted.
In a chat with Punch, Edochie said he’s indifferent to opinions expressed about him because they don’t make sense to him.
‘I’ll be honest with you: I’m indifferent to opinions expressed about me, because they don’t make sense to me. If Pete Edochie is a fantastic actor, thank you very much,” the actor said. “It doesn’t mean anything to me; it has absolutely nothing to do with me. If you start responding to things that don’t make sense, there is that danger of reducing yourself to the level of that person.
“I’m mentally occupied 24 hours on a daily basis. I trained formally as a broadcaster and by the grace of God, I happen to be an articulate individual. I don’t have to advertise that, every other person knows that.”
The actor further said having married for 50 years with 13 grand-children, what matters to him now is living a healthy life.
