Veteran Nollywood actor Pete Edochie has opened up on how he felt when his son, actor Yul Edochie decided to marry his colleague, Judy Austin as second wife.
In a recent interview with Vanguard, Pete Edochie admitted that while he didn’t agree with his son’s decision, it was his to decide.
According to Pete, he was a Christian who read the bible, if King Solomon could have 700 wives and be dubbed a wise man then it was not in his place to judge his son.
In his words: “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 what I can say.”
Yul made headlines in April of this year when he declared Judy to be his second wife. May, his first wife, has since voiced her disapproval of his choice, saying that she will not be persuaded to accept anything that does not line up with her beliefs.
