The latest episode of the unofficial Keeping up with Yul Edochie and Family saga, the popular Nollywood actor has taken to social media to offer a public apology to his first wife and high school sweetheart, May Edochie.
Recall that Yul Edochie first publicly unveiled his second wife, Judy, a colleague in the movie industry, revealing that they both had a son together. Ever since then, he and first wife May have remained publicly estranged over the domestic issue, with May stating that her faith and belief didn’t support polygamy.
Now, for the first time since the saga began, Yul has publicly tendered a heartfelt apology to May, after initially boasting that the decision to venture into polygamy had brought him many blessings.
“To my dear wife, Queen May Yul-Edochie. I acknowledge that I hurt you deeply and I’ve apologised to you countless times.
“I take the blame for my actions. I agree with you that polygamy shouldn’t be forced on anyone. You never bargained for it from the beginning neither did I. But I guess life happens. You already know the whole story.
“I didn’t do it to disrespect you. I didn’t do it to replace you, nor because I do not love you anymore, no. I have always loved you and always will.
“I’ve been a good husband and a wonderful father. I’ve supported all your hustle from day one. I have been an exceptional father to our children to date, making sure they lack nothing and always there for everyone.
“Out of 100, I have done 99 things right. Hating me because of one thing isn’t the best. Nobody is perfect. I’m not. You’re not. Nobody is, except God.
“I assure you that nobody is trying to take your place. I have apologised to you countless times sincerely from my heart.
“I’m sorry. I’ve always loved you and always will. Butuo nwanyi oma. We can live peacefully and happily.”
