Nollywood actress, Georgina Onuoha has taken to social media to tackle her colleague, Yul Edochie, for celebrating adultery and betraying his first wife, May Aligwe.
Amid the backlash trailing the development, the actor took to his Instagram page to celebrate his decision, saying that marrying a second wife has brought blessings into his life and also elevated the status of his two wives.
In his post, the actor admitted that he wronged his first wife, May Edochie, and he has apologized to her sincerely. He announced that she got her first-ever endorsement deal after the marriage saga and Judy has become famous.
The 40-year-old actor, who described himself as the biblical David, claimed that polygamy is not a crime, stressing that some of the ‘great men’ mentioned in the bible had more than one wife.
“Most of us have parents who were born into polygamy. Who will tell you that their mothers brought the new wife home for their husbands, which is a sign of her giving her blessings to her husband. I bet you know that is our culture and traditions. Taking a second wife because you impregnated her while still married is not noble; it is called adultery, and God punished most great men in the Bible you are quoting for such acts.”
“Marrying the same woman without the knowledge of your wife until she finds out on social media via a blog; is the worst kind of betrayal of trust. Eyin, there is nothing noble in what you did. You don’t force polygamy on people when they are not prepared for it. Give them an option. Not everyone has the grace to be a polygamist. So both traditionally and scripturally, you failed.
“Don’t justify your indiscretions with impunity by citing religion and tradition. On both counts, you failed. Abraham, our father in faith, got thumbs up from his wife Sarah to lay with Hagar, the slave girl. God punished David when he slept with Bethsheba and killed their first fruit born out of that adultery. So many examples in the Bible regarding adultery and its consequences.
“What you did, did not glorify our culture and traditions because it was done with impunity and with total disregard for the humanity of your wife. I bet if the table were turned, you wouldn’t be singing this same song of getting more fame and her getting endorsement. What it shows is that you have no respect for her and for yourself and kids. I hope you find peace and rest. Zukwanike. Ozugo. Rest.”
