Nonso Diobi fed and sheltered me before I became a star – Yul Edochie

Actor Yul Edochie has nothing but only kind words about his colleague Nonso Diobi as he celebrates him on his birthday.

In a glowing tribute posted on Instagram, Edochie thanked Diobi for being there for him when he first arrived in Lagos to seek for movie roles.

According to him, Nonso Diobi fed and accommodated him in his house when he was a nobody.

He wrote:

“In 2005/2006 I came to Lagos to hustle for movie roles. I met @nonsodiobi on a set, he was already a star then. We clicked. He said to me ‘come and stay in my house, it’s closer to our location than your brother’s house, you’ll be going to work with me, from there you’ll get to meet more big wigs in the game’. This wonderful soul gave me a roof over my head in Lagos, he never complained over anything, fed me and was always willing to assist me in anything. Nonny I never forget oo. Thank you bro! I wish you a very happy birthday and may God grant you all your heart desires. Ezigbo mmadu!”

Touched by the birthday tribute from Yul, Nonso replied:

“Wow! True story. To say, I’m proud of you is an understatement. I thank God for you Truely, words cant express what this means to me. Yul nwannem I’m a glad to be part of ur success story. Thank you for the love and support! God will continue to bless you beyond human imagination. Dalu ”
