Nollywood legend Pete Edochie turns 70 today, March 7, 2017.

Edochie's spectacular career spans over two decades and has seen him win several awards, as well as an Africa Magic Viewers Choice Industry Merit Award.

Best known for his roles in "Igodo," "Oracle," "Evil Men," "Lost Kingdom," "Chain Reaction" among others, the actor is one that exudes charisma and authority either as a father, a king, a billionaire or a high priest.

The impact of his movies is enormous, and his impact in the movie industry is even a bigger one. With his diction and mannerism, the veteran has always been compelling.

With an extraordinary physical beauty and power, he brought to life the character Ichie Ogbu in "Lost Kingdom";  a village chief who wouldn't be bought with money.

As a strict father in films, he is brutally honest, with very unusual and sometimes hilarious insights into just about everything.

As a member of the Igwe's cabinet, he is epic, spewing proverbs that most hardcore Nollywood followers are conversant with.

As a wicked uncle, he is sadistic, scary, straight-faced and realistic.
