Nollywood actor Yul Edochie has responded to the widespread rumour making the rounds that he put in the family way his colleague, Judy Austin.
Yul demands that his critics should rather concentrate on his several other achievements and leave his private life alone.

Yul noted that though he followed his father Pete Edochie's footsteps and became an actor, he never rode on his dad's back to be successful as he is today.
"YUL EDOCHIE. A young man who never relied on his father’s name but worked extremely hard to build his own name. A young man who came into Nollywood and took it to greater heights with his outstanding performances.
On the pregnancy rumour Yul Edochie said:
"They are busy discussing my private life which is not their business. But I’m not surprised.
That has always been one of our major problems in Nigeria, always ignoring relevant issues and focusing on frivolities.
People who have never acknowledged my contributions to nation-building are quick to discuss my private life all in a bid to bring me down. Well, sorry to disappoint you, you can’t bring me down. God lifted me, designed and equipped me for a divine purpose on earth."
