Veteran Nollywood actor Pete Edochie has lamented the alarming increase in divorce rocking the Nigerian movie industry.
He asserted that almost all the actresses in the country are divorced.
The legendary thespian made the assertion in a chat with popular media personality Chude Jideonwo.
“If you come to our industry today, most of our ladies who got married, some two, three years ago, have all left their husbands. I was shocked that Chioma Chukwuka had left her husband, Ireti Doyle, Tonto Dikeh.
“You take a vow when you are going to get married for better or worse, not for better or out. You will always think it’s greener on the other side; that is the mistake we all make.”
In other news, Pete Edochie also broke silence on the backlashes trailing his son, Yul amidst his polygamous marriage and drama with Judy Austin.
This comes following allegations of a lawsuit from the actor’s first wife, May Edochie, which has since heightened their separation.
According to Pete Edochie through a proverb, Yul brought it all on himself the second he brought ‘infested’ Judy Austin into his home.
In his words,
“He who goes to the farm and gets ant-infested firewoods (amongst all the good firewoods in the farm) shouldn’t be surprised when Lizards start paying him a visit,” he said in part.
In a loose translation,
“Yul brought in a foreign woman into the family, and by so doing, he invited all the lows, backwardness, pain, insults
