The Nigerian entertainment industry can be quite daunting for newbies especially when they are still trying to make a decision whether they are on the right path. However, some veterans in the industry have been instrumental in giving these freshers confidence to pursue their dream.
Just recently, popular Nollywood actor, Yul Edochie, took to his Instagram page to appreciate his senior colleague, Larry Koldsweat.
Despite it not being the veteran actor’s birthday, Yul explained that he wanted to celebrate him for being instrumental in his journey in the film industry.
Yul recounted how he starred Koldsweat in his directing debut movie in 2006 and how the man was impressed and encouraged him to keep at it.
The young actor explained further that Larry continued to call him to ask if jobs were forthcoming and even helped him secure a job in Lagos and wanted to make sure he got paid.
Yul said Koldsweat put his hand on his head and prayed for him after he showed up in Lagos for the job without confirming whether he would get paid or not.
Excerpts from his post read:
“He placed his hand on my head and prayed for me, and told me that with that kind of zeal in me I would become one of the greatest in no distant time.
And the rest is history.
I will always celebrate you Uncle Larry.
Long life, protection, blessings upon blessings I wish you in the mighty name of Jesus, Amen.
THANK YOU UNCLE LARRY KOLDSWEAT.”
