Nollywood actor, Yul Edochie, has come under fire after an Instagram post he made to congratulate a senior colleague, Olu Jacobs, on his 80th birthday anniversary.

Mr. Edochie in the message stated that when he joined the movie industry in 2005, he wished to be on set with Mr. Jacob and after he did meet him, he has learnt a lot from him.

Yul said, “When I started my acting career in 2005, one of my biggest wishes was to be on set with the legendary Olu Jacobs. I finally got the opportunity many times and I learnt so much from him.

“And I will forever be grateful. A very happy 80th birthday to you sir. May God be with you always. We love you.”

But few minutes after the post, Mr. Edochie got more than he can chew as fans thronged his comment session to mock him saying he did not learn anything as he claimed.

Most of the fans called him out for ruining his family by cheating on his wife and marrying his side chic.
