As a movie producer and director, he is not doing bad as well, having produced and directed a good number of Nollywood movies that are huge box office hits. He is considered one of the richest Igbo Nollywood actors of his time.

Yul Chibuike Daniel Edochie is undoubtedly enjoying his time in the movie industry, and the reason is not far-fetched. He has built himself a great deal of experience in the industry, earning him an immense reputation and wealth. Born to Pete Edochie, a veteran in the Nigerian film industry, Yul joined the industry two years after graduating from the University of Port Harcourt, where he obtained a degree in Dramatic Arts.

While many would assume his father had a hand in his choice to pursue an acting career, the now-successful actor revealed he joined the industry just to become a professional in the course he studied in school, and not necessarily because his father was already there. However, his father’s fame did influence his fast rise in the industry.

Yul officially joined the industry in 2005 in his first film titled “The Exquires,” which featured veterans like Justus Esiri, Enebeli Elebuwa, and Chidi Mokeme. His breakthrough in the industry came when he was cast as Emeka in the 2007 film titled Wind of Glory. Wind of Glory also featured top Nollywood talents like Genevieve Nnaji and Desmond Elliot.
