Seasoned actor, Yul Edochie has admonished his younger colleagues not to mock or riddle veteran thespians.
In his recent post on the microblogging site, Twitter, Yul urged up and coming actors never to look down on the career of veterans. He mentioned that there would be a repercussion for individuals who belittle the status of icons in the industry.
The 38-year-old said in a tweet on Thursday that while such people have seen their careers go downhill, the veterans have continued ‘waxing strong’.
“When I joined Nollywood in 2005,” Yul said, “I met a couple of actors/directors who had no respect for elders in the business.
Today, all those guys have fizzled out without achieving much while the veterans are still waxing strong…”

Today all those guys have fizzled out without achieving much while the veterans are still waxing strong.
I hope someone learns from this.
