‘I’m a “proud polygamist’, says Yul Edochie as netizens react
Popular Nigerian actor, Yul Edochie, is making headlines once again as he has justified his action to become polygamous with a backup reference from a bible verse.
Edochie defended his decision “with his full chest” for the umpteenth time in an Instagram post on Sunday. The actor was in the news in April 2022 when he announced his marriage to Judy Austin Muoghalu, his on-screen lover and colleague in Nollywood.
In a lengthy post which accompanied a single picture of him, Edochie claimed that God directed him to be a polygamist, quoting Exodus 21:10 as his inspiration. He said marrying two wives will help give his son a proper identity.
He admitted that his first wife, May Edochie, is not happy about his action, but he stressed that his second marriage has become a blessing to her.

The post partly read: “I’m a very proud polygamist. With my full chest. Read Exodus 21 vs 10. The Bible acknowledges polygamy. It is my destiny. God directed me to do it. So I can give my son a proper identity. Therefore it came with many blessing. Blessing for me, blessing for my wife Queen May to calm her down cos as a human being she’ll definitely not be happy about it, and blessing for my wife Judy as well”
