In the skit, Ebubedike is impressed by his fellow chief's knowledge of their town and the world as a whole, and asks to be taught.

Pete Edochie's trademark gait and style, which Nigerians have come to love in his movies, is absolutely spot-on in this skit, adding an extra layer of humour.

Since the days of "Things Fall Apart" which shot him into the limelight, Edochie has made an indelible impression on screen.

His 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.

He will be seen next in the anticipated Genevieve Nnaji movie, "The Lion Heart."
