Nigerian broadcaster, Ifedayo Olarinde, popularly known as Daddy Freeze, however, said, “In my humble opinion, it would be in perfect equilibrium, if May Edochie married a second husband, had a child for him and then posted Yul’s pic with the comment below: @yuledochie, number one undisputed! sadly, life in Nigeria offers women very poor options.”


However, the actor has put out the blame for marrying a second wife on his first wife, May Edochie.

Yul who did this during an Instagram live session with Paulo Okoye talked about the controversies trailing his second marriage to a colleague, Judy Austin.

Yul Edochie said, ” I don’t blame them, it is the love that they have for me that made them react that way. They don’t know the root for it, there is a reason for it. They don’t live in my house. A man wouldn’t come out to say everything in his home they can insult me but they wouldn’t understand”.

He added, “I believe this is preparing me for “Aso Rock” because for one to sit on that seat one has to be prepared for things like this”.
