Nollywood actor, Yul Edochie has criticized those who expressed support for the late singer Mohbad after his death, accusing them of hypocrisy and seeking attention.
In a post shared on his Instagram page, Yul Edochie condemned the hypocrisy and insensitivity in people’s reactions to Mohbad’s death, highlighting his own experiences of online harassment and criticism.
The actor claimed that these people, including some in the Nollywood community, had previously mistreated him on the internet, spreading false information and insults for over a year.
Yul Edochie, who claimed that his critics wanted him to die in order to exploit his name for their agendas, expressed frustration that they were now using Mohbad’s name to gain traffic on their social media pages.
He lamented the lack of support from Nollywood colleagues and even family members during his challenging times. He emphasized that people often do not know the full story behind personal decisions and urged for understanding and empathy rather than judgment.
The actor wrote, “All of una wey dey posy justice for Mohbad, plus the Nollywood people wey join dey shout am, you’re not different from the people that were maltreating Mohbad. You’re all demons and wicked people, simply chasing clout.
“You’re all the same people who have been insulting me for over one year, bullying me on the internet, trying so hard to kill me for matter wey no concern una. Simply bcos I took a personal decision for my life that is not your business.
“How many of you fought for Mohbad when he was alive? Now that he’s dead, you are using him to draw traffic to your page. Useless people.
“For over one year bloggers have been telling all sorts of lies against me. Everybody turn to blogger for my case. Spreading fake stories about me on Facebook just to make money. Telling lies just to destroy my name. On top matter wey una know nothing about. Just bcos men don’t talk. None of you knows what I see in my home, that inspired my decision. Idiots.
“What they did to Mohbad is what they have been doing to me on the internet for over one year. How many Nollywood people have come out to say enough? You’re all waiting for me to die so you can post my picture and write your nonsense, ‘justice for …” Na thunder go fire una.
“I lost my son. In the, midst of the unbearable pain, demands say na me kill my son. How many of una come out to fight for justice, Even my own Aunty has not called me on the phone for one day to ask me what happpened, instead she day use me day draw traffic for her page.
“On top matter wey no concern uno. On top of matter why uno no know as e take start or wetin dey happen inside house. Becos a man would rather keep quiet and protest the image of his wife that spill unnecessary information.
“The bulling, insults, curses etc I have received on the internet for over one year is enough to kill or drive to depression. But una no fit kill me. God made my head strong. 100 million of your demons no reach me. Whatever evil you wis me will follow you a thousand times. Witches and wizards.”
