Brother of a famous Nollywood actor, Uche Edochie, weighs in on the unending backlashes trailing Yul Edochie after taking a second wife.
It would be recalled that the marriage of Yul Edochie with the first wife had been through staggering points following the announcement of the second wife.
In a lengthy post via Instagram, Uche slammed society for worshipping lies than facing the truth.
He questioned which is better between a man marrying more than one wife legally or a man secretly cheating on his only wife.
“What is more admirable between honesty and deception? Most people will tell you that it is honesty and even proceed to quote a part of scripture that says, ‘The truth shall set you free’.
But none of this is true though. Society does not value honesty and the truth will only make you enemies. It doesn’t set you free. Not on this planet. If we all went around speaking our minds, we will either end up dead or in jail. We are encouraged to tell the truth but vilified when we do. Isn’t that something?
So we lie to our wives, husbands, parents, children and all of society. We lie to protect them because we know that they cannot handle the truth. That is why we lie.
The most controversial thing you can do today is not killing, cheating or stealing. Society does this everyday enmass. The most controversial thing you can do is to tell the truth. A lie is like a bottle of soda. It tastes good but it isn’t good for us.
Truth on the other hand is like quinine. The taste is horrible but healthy and curative. That is why we have adverts of your coca colas and pepsis plastered all over the world but not quinine. A lie simply tastes better.
And this my friends is why we celebrate cheaters and attack truth tellers. We consider it more respectable for a man to marry one wife and quietly cheat on her with multiple women than for him to marry two or more of these women, making his feelings for them official and respectable.
It seems to me that the issues we face in life are not because we are imperfect humans. We struggle as a society simply because we cannot handle the truth.”
In a follow-up video, Uche Edochie quizzed his fans on whether or not society should condemn a mistake or should the mistake be worked on.
