Famous and occasionally controversial Nollywood actress Rita Edochie has offered a response to comments made by her nephew, Yul Edochie, in an online exchange excusing him and reiterating that her focus is his second wife who she described as ‘Drama Devil.’
Yul had previously voiced his displeasure, claiming that Rita had not reached out to him during his widely publicized marital challenges. He further alleged that instead of contacting him privately, she had been commenting on his marriage publicly, potentially for increased online engagement.
Rita Edochie has now addressed Yul’s comments, expressing that his words brought tears to her eyes. In her extensive response, she acknowledged Yul’s continued recognition of her as his aunty. However, Rita humorously dismissed the notion that she would exploit Yul Edochie for online traffic, asserting that Yul knows her too well to believe that.
Rita went on to express her belief that Yul had done nothing to offend her personally. She attributed his actions to the influence of his wife, Judy, suggesting that he may be under the sway of mystical forces, colloquially referred to as “Juju.”
Rita emphasized that her concern and focus are primarily centered around the woman Yul chose to marry, suggesting that until she releases him, she will remain a prominent figure in her discussions.
