Veteran Nollywood actor Pete Edochie has finally broken his silence on his son Yul Edochie marrying a second wife.
The actor who has remained silent since the event took place opened up in an interview with Vanguard published on Saturday.
When asked about what he felt about Yul Edochie picking a second wife, Pete said although it stands against his christian beliefs, he would not fault him because Solomon in the bible also had numerous wives and concubines.
He 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 all 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
Yul and his second wife actress, Judy Austin, made headlines in April after the former announced his marriage to Judy. The actor also revealed they already have a son together.
