I acknowledge that I hurt you deeply and I’ve apologized to you countless times.
I take the blame for my actions.

You never bargained for it from the beginning neither did I.
But I guess life happens.

Yul brags as “proud polygamist’
Meanwhile, Yul made headlines two days ago when 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 Moghalu, 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.
