He commended Judy Austin, who recently shared a video on Friday, July 22, defending him against Nigerians accusing him of not mourning his first son, Kabilichukwu, adequately.
As a reminder, Kambili tragically passed away in March this year.
Yul has faced criticism from some Nigerians on social media, who believe he returned to the movie scene and social media too soon after his teenager’s death. They argue that he should have mourned Kambili for a longer period.
In the video she posted, Judy defended her husband’s actions, urging Nigerians to let him grieve his son in his own way.
She also requested that the critics wait until they experience the loss of their own children before advising others on how to mourn.
Numerous Nigerians, including actor Uche Maduagwu, have criticized Judy, asserting that she lacks the right to speak about the passing of Kambili, who was born to May, Yul’s first wife.
However, in a recent post shared on his Instagram page, Yul praised Judy for her supportive stance towards him.
He posted the video she shared on his page with the caption.’
“You’re not called Ijele Odogwu for nothing.
May the heavens reward and bless you.
Thank you for the support.
