Yul Edochie’s second marriage publicized in April 2022 divided opinions. Some called him out for the decision as they could not fathom the rationale behind it, having signed onto a monogamous marriage. Others also argued that he was at liberty to go polygamous once he has the means.
In response, the actor said: “People are talking about something that they don’t know the root of. There is always a reason for something and they don’t know the root. Everybody who is shouting and insulting me don’t live in my house. Nobody has asked what the issue is. As a man, you don’t say everything in public, you just protect your family. I’d rather take all the heat, because they will never understand. But I understand their pain.”
