Pete Edochie’s family portrait
Pete got married at the age of 22. He is blessed with six children and several grandchildren.
Pete Edochie started growing his beard when he was 23 years and has never completely shaved it off since then. Although he could trim it, Pete said he will never shave his beard no matter how much money he is offered to do so.
When he was asked if he will ever shave off his beard for any price?
In his words: 👇👇👇
No, I wouldn’t, no matter how much you would pay me. It gives me character. I have always played a big man in my movies. If I am not a leader of a cult, I am an Igwe or a native doctor. There must be something inspiring about you. Something that frightens people, that terrifies them, intimidates them when they know that you are coming. When you clean-shave, you lose that character.
