Meanwhile, Yul Edochie’s first wife May, responded to the news by calling on God’s judgement of over the union.

In the comment section under Yul’s post on Instagram, she penned, “May God judge you both.”

Here are some ways the controversy might affect him and the entire Edochie clan:

Presidential Ambition

The recent Yul Edochie wife drama has put a spotlight over Yul’s ambition to run in Nigeria 2023 presidential elections. The news of his second marriage however, may have dented his hopes of achieving the feat for now as most political parties might be wary of adding his baggage of family troubles to their campaign trail.

Although insiders close to Yul’s family have hinted that there is a possibility that his family was being blackmailed owing to his interest to run in the Nigerian 2023 Presidential elections, but his stance and lack of remorse may have undoubtedly put holes in his political career.


The news no doubt has put the Pete Edochie family in the ire of the public storm as the veteran actor had in the past spoken in strong opposition to polygamy.

Writing on behalf of the Edochie family recently, Yul’s elder brother Uche Edochie chastised his brother for taking a second wife saying Yul’s decision was against the stance of the family and that May, his first wife, didn’t deserve the drama after she endured 17 years with him.

“His first wife May, a wonderful woman, and my sister in law did not go into a relationship with my brother agreeing to be part of a polygamous marriage.

“That’s the first problem. So I feel for May. It is not fair on her. My family is not in support. This is not what we do and we are trying our best to console May. What else can we do,” He  wrote.

Uche wished Yul and his family the best and advised him all the same. “This is Yul’s new baby with his new wife. Beautiful boy. Children are a gift from God. It is the circumstances of their birth that gets us all riled up about what’s right and wrong.
