Renowned Nollywood actor Pete Edochie has expressed his sorrow over the passing of his grandson, Kambilichukwu, who passed away just two months after turning 16.
The movie star confirmed the boy’s passing in an interview with Vanguard, saying his son Yul had called to tell him that Kambilichukwu had fallen and experienced a seizure while playing soccer with his friends at school.
After being taken to the Mother and Child hospital, the boy passed away a few hours later.
“Kambilinachukwu is a very quiet, brilliant and talented child. He’s not somebody you can ride easily. He doesn’t get angry no matter the situation,”
“He may change his composure, but he was definitely a very unusual person in so many respects. He was so accomplished. I always tell my son that I don’t like people excelling like this in any thing they are involved in. Experience has taught me that such people don’t last long.”
