General News I asked God to let me see my dead son and He granted my wish — Yul Edochie

Nollywood actor Yul Edochie commemorated what would have been the 17th birthday of his late son, Kambilichukwu Edochie, in a ‘heartfelt’ post.

Kambilichukwu, fondly known as Kambi, tragically passed away in March last year, leaving a void in the actor's life.

In an open letter dedicated to his son, Yul Edochie shared his deep emotions and the pain of losing Kambi, expressing how much he misses him.

The actor revealed that he had asked God to grant him the opportunity to see his late son again, and remarkably, he had a dream fulfilling his wish.

"Kambi yooooo! Happy 17th birthday, my great son. Hope you’re doing well over there. I never knew I'll ever do a write-up like this, but here we are.

“Life. I kept asking God to let me see you again, and he granted my wish. And I saw you once in my dream. You looked much taller and more handsome.

“And bigger. You were glowing. Seems you’re now playing basketball over there and left football. You looked very happy. Obviously, life over there is quite different from here," Yul Edochie wrote.

Accompanying the emotional message were two pictures of the actor with his son, taken the year before, providing a glimpse into their shared moments.

Expressing the difficulty of coping with the loss, Yul Edochie acknowledged the pain but affirmed his strength for the sake of himself and Kambi's siblings.

"Down here we’re doing our best to cope. It's not been easy without you around. The pain is terrible.

“But I'm strong. Very strong. I have to be strong for me and your siblings. While submitting totally to the will of God. We miss you. We love you, but God loves you more.

“You're elevated now. Keep watching over us all. Keep flying, son. Till we meet again. Don't stop playing football. Happy 17th birthday, Son," he continued.

Kambilichukwu was the second child born to Yul Edochie with his first wife May Yul-Edochie.

His untimely passing occurred in March last year, reportedly after he slumped while playing football at his school.
