Nollywood actor- turned politician, Yul Edochie, has told those who cared to listen that he is not in the habit of wishing his enemies well while they are out to ensure his downfall.
The thespian, who recently called on upcoming actors to stop jumping into Nollywood without learning from “the master,” stated this on his Twitter page while reacting to a caustic comment by a follower.
He wrote: “I don’t believe in praying for my enemies and wishing them well. You can’t be planning evil for me and I’ll be busy praying for you. Lie lie!! I wish you what you wish me. Simple… And every day I’ll be firing psalm 35 and psalm 109 on your head.”
Yul’s comments came a few days after his father, Pete Edochie reacted to comments by a controversial United States-based illustrator, Lotanna Odunze, aka Sugabelly, who said he (Pete) is a really bad actor for playing the same role in his entire life.
“Acting isn’t quoting proverbs. But Nigerians live and die by seniority, so the older he gets, the less anybody is able to point this glaring elephant in the room out,” Odunze added.
