    Actress Yvonne Jegede apologizes to May Yul-Edochie over comment made about Yul’s decision of Polygamy

    Actress Yvonne Jegede has tendered a public apology to May Yul-Edochie, the estranged wife of actor Yul Edochie over her recent comments on Yul venturing into Polygamy.

    While speaking on a podcast recently, the single mum of one said she doesn’t see anything wrong in Yul taking a second wife.

    Ms Jegede, some people criticising Yul come from families with second or third wives. She urged them to refrain from attacking the actor for his choice.

    “You see this same Yul Edochie, ehn, 99% of people that are abusing him on the internet are from second wives, third wives, fourth wives, and even fifth wives. Sometimes some of them come from wives they the family does not even know about; let’s all stop being silly on the internet.

    He is owning his BS with his chest, but nobody is going to support him, not even me. I have to stand with the crowd so they don’t curse me. I don’t see anything he’s done wrong; most of us are from second wives.” Jegede said

    Further expressing her support for Edochie, Jegede questioned the double standards surrounding polygamous relationships, specifically citing the case of Ned Nwoko and Regina Daniels.

    The actress was heavily criticised by social media users who felt her comments were intended to slight May who they opined has endured so much pain since the crash of her marriage to the actor.

    In a statement released, Yvonne said she has realised that her words were not articulated in a way that conveyed her true intentions and had been misconstrued as insensitive, particularly towards May Edochie who she said is a woman that has ‘’endured significant pain and hardship occasioned by estranged marriage’’

    ‘’I deeply regret that my comments were perceived as adding to her distress. It was never my intention to cause any pain or disrespect. I am truly sorry.’’ Ms Jegde said

    She further stated that her words were misinterpreted and that in the course of the interview, she spoke about her own failed marriage and the struggles of single mothers, aiming to shed light on these.
