"I see two main problems here. His first wife Mary, a wonderful woman and my sister in law did not go into a relationship with my brother agreeing to be part of a polygamous marriage. That's the first problem. So I feel for Mary. It is not fair on her. My family are not in support. This is not what we do and we are trying our best to console Mary. What else can we do?"
Also in the post, the actor’s brother noted that Yul is not a Muslim and that the family told him not to marry another wife, but he did it anyway. Uche noted that it is hard controlling an adult when it comes to relationships.
"We told Yul not to do it. He did it anyway. Have you ever tried controlling an adult when it comes to relationships? Good luck with that. Yul is an adult who feels marrying a second woman is the best way to own up to his mistakes and make things right. It took a lot of courage for him to do this too."
Maybe Yul should become a Muslim
Uche also spoke on how women have been known to throw themselves at famous men and that if an average person walked in Yul’s shoes, they would have gotten about five women pregnant.
The actor’s brother finally concluded that perhaps Yul should become a Muslim to make his second marriage more acceptable.
"So this is Yul's new baby with his new wife. Beautiful boy. Children are a gift from God. It is the circumstances of their birth that gets us all riled up about what's right and wrong. I wish them all luck. Maybe Yul should become a Muslim and shut this circus down."
