According to the actor, when he was in secondary school, he had plans to drop out to become a trader and it didn't sit well with his father.

"In JS2, I told my father I didn't want to go to school anymore, he should open electrical shop for me. He said ok. He invited me to his room, locked the door & pulled out his belt. He gave me a beating that reset my brain to factory setting. Look at me today. Thank you Dad!" he tweeted.

Edochie's post is coming on the heels of a video that has gone viral on social media where a father scolded his son over his poor results despite the huge amount of money invested in his education.
