Actor Yul Edochie drums support for Prof Uju Anya over controversial post about Queen Elizabeth

Nollywood actor, Yul Edochie has drummed support for Nigerian-born American professor, Uju Anya over her controversial posts about Queen Elizabeth II.

The father-of-five hailed the Professor for speaking “our truth”.

Recall Anya went viral after her comments on the late monarch hours before her passing on September 8, 2022.

The professor, in her comments, wished the Queen excruciating pain. She tweeted:

“I heard the chief monarch of a thieving raping genocidal empire is finally dying. May her pain be excruciating.”

The tweet had since been deleted for violating “Twitter rules”.

Uju’s tweet received mixed reactions around the globe, including Amazon founder, Jeff Bezos, who criticised her for making such an insensitive comment, while others praised her for being courageous enough to share her thoughts.

However, Yul, while reacting to a recent interview of Prof Uju with 1hood, a media channel, explaining the reasons for her remarks against the deceased Queen Elizabeth, commended the American Professor for speaking out for Africans.

Yul Edochie wrote:

“I listened to your interview on 1hood media channel on YouTube. And I just want to say thank you for speaking the truth, our truth.

“Thank you for speaking for our people. Only the truth can set us free. And set us on the part of recovery. Thank you Professor Uju Anya.”
