A female sculptor’s attempt to create a sculpture of renowned Nollywood actor Pete Edochie sparks a flood of responses on social media.
Without a doubt, the veteran actor is greatly admired and has inspired others to create works in his honour, such as a life-sized sculpture of Pete Edochie recently created by an artist in Enugu.
In a Facebook post, a young man named Henry Nonso published an image of the Enugu lady’s human-sized sculpture, urging people to judge her work.
He also supplied a photograph of the 76-year-old actor to help evaluate the sculptor’s work.
“Female sculptor in Enugu molded legendary Nollywood actor Pete Edochie. “Rate her art on a scale of / 10,” he wrote.
