A Ugandan man by the name, of Simon, has passionately appealed to veteran actor, Pete Edochie to reach out to him.
In a video making rounds online, the man had claimed to be one of the sons of the veteran actor.
Simon said his mum had visited Nigeria in 1984 to work as a house help and had returned to Ugandan with a pregnancy.
He stated that his mother was never able to show him his biological father before her demise, but many have noted the similarity between him and Pete Edochie.
Reaching out to the veteran, he begged him to come for him as he is struggling in Kampala.
“I am from Kampala, Uganda. My mother told me in 1984, she went to Nigeria and worked as a housemaid, and came back to Uganda when she was pregnant. She gave birth to a son and that’s me. Up till now, I haven’t had the chance of meeting my biological father. Many people that come to me tell me that I resemble Pete Edochie. Sir Pete Edochie my mother died but you are still alive, if you are still there, and you know you are my father please come for your son. I am struggling, life isn’t good in Kampala, Ugandan”.
