Veteran Nollywood actor Pete Edochie has opened up on how he felt when he learned about the decision of his son, Yul, to marry a second wife.
He stated that he felt bad about it but still loves him as a father regardless.
Edochie gave his opinion on Yul’s second marriage in an interview with Vanguard.
When asked about how he felt, the veteran actor said;
‘I didn’t feel good, but like I said I’m a Christian and I read the Bible. Solomon with 700 wives and 300 concubines, was branded a man of wisdom. it’s his choice and for whatever reason he decided to take a second wife, that’s what I can say.’
Speaking further about all his children, Edochie said; ‘All my children are after my heart. Whatever they do I am still their father, and I am very close to all of them. I don’t have a favorite one. And I didn’t raise them like that. Whatever you find in my house is accessible to all of them. I don’t contest their choices with them. If any one of them meets a girl and he’s in love with her and he wants to marry her, let that person go ahead and do so. I gave them the necessary education they require to stand on their own. I bought a car for each one of them when they graduated from the university.’
On why Yul seems to be different from his other children, the veteran noted that Yul is into show business and he tries to create controversies around himself.
‘That’s why he has a lot of followers on social media,’ Edochie added.
The Eastern Updates reports that Yul has been involved in a number of controversies in recent times.
