Pete Edochie Responds to Kanayo O. Kanayo’s Seniority Claim in Nollywood

Renowned actor Pete Edochie has clarified his seniority in Nollywood, explaining that he was already involved in cinematic projects before the emergence of the Nigerian film industry. This clarification comes in response to his colleague Kanayo O Kanayo’s public claim of seniority in Nollywood.

Edochie addressed Kanayo O Kanayo’s claims by pointing out that his journey in the movie industry began before the concept of Nollywood took shape. During an interview with Afia TV, he emphasized that Nollywood came into existence seven years after his iconic role in “Things Fall Apart.”

He elaborated that when he portrayed a role in 1985 for “Things Fall Apart,” the film industry was still in its early stages. Edochie’s remarkable performance in this acclaimed movie played a pivotal role in his illustrious career, catapulting him to national and international fame.

Edochie recounted how his role in “Things Fall Apart” garnered attention from the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC), which even traveled to Nigeria to interview him, recognizing the global impact of his performance.

As a testament to the significance of his role, Edochie shared that he was invited to meet with Chinua Achebe, the esteemed author of the book that inspired “Things Fall Apart.” This meeting took place in America, further solidifying Edochie’s status as a respected figure in the Nigerian film industry.
