When Nollywood actress Judy Austin posted a loving birthday message to her father-in-law, renowned actor Pete Edochie, many people online were astonished.
Pete had earlier lauded May, the actor’s first wife and mother of Yul Edochie, for being the inspiration behind the actor’s success.
Pete used an Igbo parable to discuss Yul and Judy’s marriage in a way that has sparked online discussion.
Judy Austin has removed her birthday tribute to her father-in-law amid the turbulent waves of outrage that have followed veteran actor Pete Edochie’s fascinating interview, in which he dug into the complexities of his son Yul Edochie’s marital strife.
Judy may have been motivated to move decisively by Pete’s sarcastic remark about her romantic engagement with Yul.

“He who goes to the farm and gets ants-infested firewoods (amongst all the good firewoods in the farm) shouldn’t be surprised when Lizards start paying him a visit (like lizards disturbing nah)”.
Edochie also went on declare his support and love for Yul’s first wife, May, noting that the success of the marriage hinged on her while calling her a brilliant woman and his favourite.
