The Edochie’s are in the news again for public opinion. This time Yul Edochie has been dragged by fellow Nollywood colleague, Zubby Micheal.
‘People should practice what they preach because charity begins at home, This one that can not give anyone a lift even when he is driving your way, #verywickedandstingy’ Zubby said.
The comment came after Yul Edochie shared his opinion on Twitter following president’s speech on Sunday evening.
Dear President @MBuhari
Pls provide an economic relief package for Nigerians, even if it's 50k each, it will go a long way.
People are hungry, locked down with no money, begging left, right & centre.
With the situation like this, it'll be difficult to keep people at home.

Pls provide an economic relief package for Nigerians, even if it’s 50k each, it will go a long way. People are hungry, locked down with no money, begging left, right & centre. With the situation like this, it’ll be difficult to keep people at home.” Yul Edochie said.
While many of his fans and twitter users agreed with him (some even said they will manage 2k if it will come… lol) Some other users came for his head.
One referred to him as a ‘local actor’ and others said he should take his own advice and do philanthropy in his immediate environment.
It seems that the Enugu based actor Zubby Michael had some personal beef with Yul Edochie. His response ended with #verywickedandstingy.
Zubby Michael is known for his proud and pompous roles in Nollywood films. With his recent outbursts on Social Media, he seems to be living up to the role in real life.
Recall that Zubby called out the AMVCA organisers for being tribalistic after the AMVCA7.
Citing Yul Edochie’s political affiliations with the People’s Democratic Party, some users claimed that he was part of the looters that have stolen Nigeria’s money.
Speak for yourself local actor, when @OfficialPDPNig your party stole all our money, where are we to get the N50k from, is Obj, @atiku and GEJ all ready to return what they are alleged to have stolen?

Yul, on his part, has not bothered to respond to any of the comments.
