In a chat with Nollywood’s foremost star, Victoria Inyama, the veteran actor noted that marrying two wives does not confer a manly status on anyone.

According to him, right from when Yul was till a child, he never listened to him.
“I’m not shocked that he has a son without my knowledge. A child that doesn’t listen to his father end up cutting his or her life span short,
Yul, on Wednesday, welcomed a son with his second wife, Judy Austin, who is also a Nigerian actress.
The actor made the announcement on his Instagram page on Wednesday, where he shared pictures of himself and the newborn son.
He added that he loves the child as much as he loved his older four children, which he shared with his first wife, May.
Edochie wrote, “It’s time for the world to meet my son. His name is STAR DIKE MUNACHIMSO YUL-EDOCHIE. Born by my second wife, Judy Austin. And I love him so much, just as much as I love my other children.”
In the comment session, Yul’s first wife, May, wrote, “May God judge you both.”
