The Nigerian actor Yul Edochie retaliated against his estranged wife May after she posted a reflection on 2023 events on social media.
In her New Year post, May said 2023 came with “too many adversities and misfortunes.” In her words, it “dealt with me in the most catastrophic ways.”
The loss of Kambilichukwu, her first child with Yul, in March, she implied, was the worst part of the experience, adding that 2023 “stole my flesh and blood.” Kambilichukwu passed away in March of last year after having a seizure while playing football at school.
May wrote the statement below on her social media page:
“Dear 2023, you were pregnant on the very first day of Jan unknown to anyone what you would deliver. You dealt with me in the most catastrophic ways…. Too many adversities | misfortunes and the worst of it you stole my own flesh and blood leaving me in the most devastating, miserable and confused state that I could never have imagined,” she wrote.
“I lost all hopes and nearly gave up, I had too many questions eating me all up but I kept hearing that voice echoing, “who am I to question God”? I struggled so hard and stood on God’s words commanding us to give Him praise in every situation despite how difficult it is.
“Truly, I appreciate all the good people you made me cross paths with (my family, friends, strangers turned friends, and my online fam). I cannot begin to list names cos it is endless but I want y’all to know that I will forever remain thankful for the incredible level of love and support showered upon me and my family in our most difficult times.”
In response to her post, Yul accused May of having breast enlargement surgery in the same year without his consent. The actor also advised his ex-wife not to use social media to sway public opinion and incite hatred toward him.
“Your flesh and blood were stolen by 2023, but you still had enough time to have a stomach tuck and breast augmentation surgery without your husband’s approval,” he wrote.
“Endorsed by your married boyfriend. Enough of the manipulation.
“Stop manipulating people on social media to hate me and feel pity for you while you enjoy your life secretly. Because they don’t know the real you. I will not take it in 2024.
“I’ve been silent for too long. I’ve been doing my best to protect your image while you’re doing all you can to destroy mine. Enough.”
