“You insult people online and ask for forgiveness that doesn’t come from your mind” – Rita Edochie tackles Yvonne Jegede for defending Yul Edochie

Rita Edochie expresses disappointment in Yvonne Jegede

Nollywood actress Rita Edochie has lashed out at her junior colleague, Yvonne Jegede, over her podcast interview defending her nephew, Yul Edochie.

Kemi Filani reported that Yvonne, in an interview on the Honest Bunch podcast, defended Yul Edochie for marrying a second wife as she slammed those criticising him and praising Regina Daniels.

Her statement didn’t sit with many social media users who mercilessly dragged her for being insensitive and ignoring May Edochie’s pains.

Following the backlash, she apologised to her fans and May, stating that she didn’t articulate her words properly to convey her trust intentions and acknowledged May’s pains and hardship during her marriage.

In a lengthy post on her Instagram page, she noted how people insult others on social media and later ask for forgiveness, which doesn’t come from their heart. She admonished the public to always dig deep before they talk to avoid harming someone’s emotions unknowingly.

Addressing Yvonne, she expressed her disappointment as she revealed that her statement shook her to the marrow. She slammed her for comparing Yul to Ned Nwoko as she noted how Ned is a Muslim and his religion permits him to marry multiple wives. She noted how Yul is free to marry as many wives as he wants; unfortunately, the way he went about it was worse as he humiliated May Edochie.

“SEE AS I DEY LOOK UNA 🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄.

UNA DON MEK AM PIONT OF DUTY TO INSULT PEOPLE ONLINE; COM DEY ASK FOR FORGIVENESS WEH NO COME FROM UNA HEART.

PEOPLE SHOULD ALWAYS DIG DEEP BEFORE THEY TALK TO AVOID HARMING SOMEONE’S EMOTIONS UNKNOWINGLY.

YOU SEE, EHN, I WOULDN’T HAVE ADDRESSED THIS ISSUE SINCE AN APOLOGY HAS BEEN TENDERED, BUT THEN THE APOLOGY HASN’T GONE AS VIRAL AS THE PODCAST, WHICH HAS CAUSED A WHOLE LOT OF BACKLASH AND THAT’S WHY I AM TALKING ON THIS.

I MUST SAY THIS: YVONNE JEGEDE, MY DAUGHTER, I WAS HIGHLY DISAPPOINTED AT WHAT YOU SAID RECENTLY DURING THAT PODCAST.
LET US AGREE YOUR WORDS WERE MISUNDERSTOOD, BUT TO BE FRANK, I WAS HURT.

WHAT KEPT RUNNING THROUGH MY MIND WAS WHY YOU KEPT COMPARING YUL TO NED.
LET ME ASK YOU ONE QUESTION, SO IF MAY EDOCHIE WAS YOUR SISTER, WOULDN’T YOU HAVE PROTECTED HER INTEREST? NO ONE IS SAYING POLYGAMY IS A SIN OR AN ABORMINATION, BUT YOU CAN AGREE WITH ME IT COMES WITH SURROUNDING CHAOS THAT THREATENS ONE’S LIFE AND PEACE OF MIND, BUT IT’S FUNNY HOW PEOPLE HAVE REFUSED TO SHUN IT.

NOW, TO THOSE WHO ARE STILL SUPPORTING WHAT HAPPENED TO MAY YUL EDOCHIE, MAY EVERY FEMALE IN YOUR GENERATION, BOTH BORN AND UNBORN, HAVE A TASTE OF HER PAIN.

TALKING ABOUT YUL, MY SON, HE IS A MAN, AND THE FACT HE IS FREE TO MARRY AS MANY WOMEN AS HE WISHES TO REMAIN UNDISPUTED IN AS MUCH AS I KNOW THERE WERE NO REASONS FOR HIM TO DO THAT IN THE FIRST PLACE.

BUT WHAT EVERYONE WHO IS CONCERNED AND FROWNS AT IS GETTING MARRIED ON SOCIAL MEDIA WITHOUT THE KNOWLEDGE OF HIS WIFE, THEREBY HUMILIATING MAY DIRECTLY AND INDIRECTLY, WHICH IS WHAT I HAVE BEEN FIGHTING AGAINST.

ON THE SIDE OF NED HE IS A KNOWN POLYGAMIST AND A MUSLIM. HIS RELIGION PERMITS HIM TO MARRY MANY WIVES, AND HE MANNAGES THEM WITH WISDOM.

SO, MY DEAR, THAT STATEMENT YOU MADE DURING THE PODCAST SHOCKED MY MARROWS, BUT GOD KNOWS AND SEES THE MAIN CONTENT OF EVERY HEART.

ALL OF UNA WEY NO WANT TALK TRUE
SEE AS I JUST DEY LOOK YOU”.
