Ace Nigerian movie star and filmmaker, Yul Edochie, has emphasised that he is just a very good actor and not a ritualist.

“Some people are sending me messages begging me to show them where they can do money rituals. Come on now guys, come on. Na film I dey act.
“Just like American action films where one man will defeat a whole city of bad guys. Na storyline be that, e no dey happen. Is it now a crime to be a good actor? Make I no chop??? Na wa for una oo.”(sic)
To prove his point, the actor shared a screenshot of a message from one of his fans.

He wrote, “This is just one of the many messages I receive daily. Some are even more serious than this. Some say I no wan cut soap for boys. Which soap abeg??? Naija oo. Wahala everywhere.
