In Nollywood one of the names that is synonymous with motherly roles and Mother-In-law will be Rita Edochie. There is a possibility for you to find Rita Edochie in one out of ten Nollywood movies. She is most likely playing the role of a wife, mother-In-law or mother. She is fast catching up with Ngozi Ezeonu and Patience Ozokwor in those roles.
This Enugu based actress can capture her audience by bringing to life any given role she plays. In the movie Tears and Sorrow, Rita performance at the grave of the son was breathtaking. That single act is the best that I have ever seen from any Nollywood actor/actress.
Rita Edochie is the wife of Pete Edochie's younger brother, Tony Edochie.
