Nollywood actor, Yul Edochie, has penned a heartfelt note on what would have been his late son Kambilichukwu’s 17th birthday.
Expressing his grief on his Instagram account on Thursday, Yul expressed the pain of losing a son and recounts a dream where Kambi appeared taller, handsome, and joyful.
Yul also acknowledged the difficulty of life without his son but emphasises his strength for the sake of his siblings, relying on God’s will.
He wrote, “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. 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. Daddy loves you.”
Recall that Yul and his estranged wife, May lost their first son, in January.
According to reports, Kambilichukwu had read throughout the night in preparation for his exams. After his examination, he joined his friends to play football, where he slumped and developed a seizure and was immediately rushed to the hospital, where he was confirmed dead.
